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).

Discussion for Romans 8

  • Emmanuel
    Good, myGod bless you for doing the work of the lord

    B) While there are verses within this chapter that we all have memorized
  • A disciple
    Steve and Jeff (cont.); What can be the most frustrating for those who really want to help and guide the other back to soundness and health in the LORD; is that they tend to build a hard shell like a turtle and hide from every one who wants to talk sensibly to them. Then also you have others scrutinizing YOUR motives and words, instead of rather supporting the rescue efforts of the erring brother.
  • A disciple
    Steve; You are right with your concerns! I think it is a fairly common trick of the devil, that apparently works very well, to allure a young man by flattering him, when he might be just beginning to understand some truth; by telling him that his superior spirituality and brain capacity has found a methodology for making all Scripture mean only what they "think" they know; making them unteachable.
  • A disciple
    Jeff; I'm afraid that the hardest ones to reason with are those who have an idea in which they think EVERY Scripture is a coded message locked up to everyone else but them, for they have the key. Unknown to these is the fact obvious to the rest of us, is that they have isolated themselves from all of God's counsel and the whole of His Doctrine. They think that everything means what only they know!
  • Jeff Berry
    Alex, what/who replaces the church?
