8:8 They who are in the flesh - Under the government of it.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 8:8


Ro 8:8 So then. The result naturally follows that a "carnally-minded man" (Ro 8:6), one "in the flesh" and under its dominion, cannot please God. This is impossible while he continues to mind the things of the flesh.

    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.
