People's Bible Notes for Romans 8:18


Ro 8:18 The sufferings of this present time. The Christian of our time has little conception of the sufferings of the ancient saints, counted as outcasts, despised, persecuted, slain. See Ro 8:36 2Co 11:23-28. Yet Paul counted these as nothing in view of the hope of eternal glory. The glory which shall be revealed in us. In the saints when they shall have received the inheritance which God bestows in Christ. The comforts of the saint in the midst of suffering are now given: (1) The hope of glory for which all creation, ruined by the Fall, is looking. (2) The present help of the Spirit. (3) The overruling providence of God.

Discussion for Romans 8

  • Bob DeHaan
    This chapter of Romans I had not read in some time. I feel convicted that I need to better listen to the Holy Spirit than to the flesh. We Are so easily distracted from God's calling in our life because the world is constantly sucking us away from the Spirit.O Lord help me to study and walk tall as an overcomer in Christ. I stand each day on your promises.Thank you for your mercy and grace.

    Nothing shall separate us, Praise Jesus!

    yes nothing, nothing at all can be in position to separate us from the love God whether death, persistent trails, lack sickness in this world. trails are always with us so we have to endure and look unto the cross. so if you are to forsake Christ it means it will be on a daily basis.

  • BSP
    Verses 38 and 39 show that absolutely nothing, not even death itself, can separate us from God's love. That is such a comforting thought of how deep and powerful God's love is.
  • Bob Hucik
    There's more than sufficient evidence in this chapter of this letter to satisfy all who hunger for righteousness. Article 30 explains that if one repents, is baptized in the NAME of the Lord Jesus Christ you WILL receive the Holy Ghost. With the very Spirit of God residing in the one who follows Him they will they will diligently seek to see His Face and follow Him as a bride to wed Him-TRUE LOVE!
