People's Bible Notes for Romans 8:11


Ro 8:11 But if the Spirit of him who raised up Jesus from the dead. The Holy Spirit. That Spirit in us is a pledge (see Eph 1:13,14) that God will raise us, even as Christ was raised from the tomb. Shall also quicken your mortal bodies. Though the body be doomed to death "because of sin", it shall be given life for those who have God's Spirit dwelling in them. Even our mortal bodies shall be raised, not in corruption, but in incorruption (1Co 15:42-44).

    When I read Romans 8:18, it reminds me of all the suffering we are required to endure. But, the one most glorious consolation for all that suffering, will be the revelation of Our soon coming King of God.
