Wesley's Notes for Romans 8:6


8:6 For to be carnally minded - That is, to mind the things of the flesh. Is death - The sure mark of spiritual death, and the way to death everlasting. But to be spiritually minded - That is, to mind the things of the Spirit. Is life - A sure mark of spiritual life, and the way to life everlasting. And attended with peace - The peace of God, which is the foretaste of life everlasting; and peace with God, opposite to the enmity mentioned in the next verse.

    1-4 "that the requirement of the law should be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to flesh, but according to Spirit." Demonstrating by the Spirit; the signs which Jesus did in the sight of the children of Israel, were for bringing them to the knowledge of the truth, and fulfilling God's promise of salvation. So too in us, by His Spirit; that God's goodness should praise Him in our new life.

    Paul tells us that speaking in another language is good if it is used to communicate the Good News. He says it is better to speak in the language that edifies, builds up the body of Christ. If one comes and all are speaking differently, they'll say you are mad, crazy.
