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".

    It is sad to see what some Reverends teach as Bible fact. This WHOLE chapter teaches the security of a believer that has the Spirit of God in him. The last verse qualifies everything by the phrase: "which is in Christ Jesus." I ask: How can I be in Christ Jesus and go to hell? Would'nt God have to throw in Jesus in too? I am IN Jesus.

    The one thing that I know from my own experience with God is that He will always be there when I need Him. Other than turning your back on Him denouncing Him , there is no sin that He won't forgive you for, so in knowing that there should be NO ONE or NOTHING that will be able to seperate you from the Love of God.
