Wesley's Notes for Romans 8:31


8:31 What shall we say then to these things - Related in the third, fifth, and eighth chapters? As if he had said, We cannot go, think, or wish anything farther. If God be for us - Here follow four periods, one general and three particular. Each begins with glorying in the grace of God, which is followed by a question suitable to it, challenging all opponents to all which, I am persuaded, &c., is a general answer. The general period is, If God be for us, who can be against us? The first particular period, relating to the past time, is, He that spared not his own Son, how shall he not freely give us all things? The second, relating to the present, is, It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? The third, relating to the future, is, It is Christ that died - Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?

    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
