People's Bible Notes for Romans 8:1


Ro 8:1 The Privileges of the Children of God SUMMARY OF ROMANS 8: No Condemnation to Those in Christ. Walking After the Spirit. To Be Carnally Minded, Death. To Be Spiritually Minded, Life and Peace. The Spirit of Adoption. Heirs of God. The Sufferings of Saints. The Groanings of the Creation. All Things Working for Good to Saints. The Purpose and Foreordination of God. God's Protection of His Children. [There is] therefore. The "therefore" points to the argument of chapter 7, which shows that in Christ we are delivered from sin and from the curse of the law. No condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus. As those in Christ have died with him, Ro 6:1-4, they have in him satisfied the law, and hence they cannot be under condemnation. He, the sinless One, "was made sin for us"; so we, forgiven through him, are "made the righteousness of God in him" (2Co 5:21). This blessed condition depends on a vital union with Christ. "Baptized into Christ" (Ro 6:3), we must walk in him, "not after the flesh, but after the Spirit". Compare Joh 15:1-7 Eph 1:23. Who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. See PNT "Ro 8:4".

    for his word says seek ye first his kingdom, in seeking the kingdom on this earth is not easy lot of trials and temptations, but we should remember that he says in all things we are more than conquerors so we need not to be afraid but to wait for the all other things that is the glory that we will be getting after this, and it can never be compared to what we went through in seeking the kingdom.
