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".

    The subject of Romans Chapter 8 is that of a redeemed spirit residing in a body that is yet to be redeemed!

    There are those that are so deeply scarred that living a victorious life seems to be an alusive dream. For that one, the dream of a victorious life can only become a reality once he fully understands that he is a redeemed spirit residing in a body that is yet to be redeemed....

    We must have the baptism of the holy ghost spirit. Otherwise we'd be in the flesh which is not pleasing to him. We must be in Christ or we are none of his
