People's Bible Notes for Romans 8:1


Ro 8:1 The Privileges of the Children of God SUMMARY OF ROMANS 8: No Condemnation to Those in Christ. Walking After the Spirit. To Be Carnally Minded, Death. To Be Spiritually Minded, Life and Peace. The Spirit of Adoption. Heirs of God. The Sufferings of Saints. The Groanings of the Creation. All Things Working for Good to Saints. The Purpose and Foreordination of God. God's Protection of His Children. [There is] therefore. The "therefore" points to the argument of chapter 7, which shows that in Christ we are delivered from sin and from the curse of the law. No condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus. As those in Christ have died with him, Ro 6:1-4, they have in him satisfied the law, and hence they cannot be under condemnation. He, the sinless One, "was made sin for us"; so we, forgiven through him, are "made the righteousness of God in him" (2Co 5:21). This blessed condition depends on a vital union with Christ. "Baptized into Christ" (Ro 6:3), we must walk in him, "not after the flesh, but after the Spirit". Compare Joh 15:1-7 Eph 1:23. Who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. See PNT "Ro 8:4".

Discussion for Romans 8

  • Bookreadingismything
    Amen, thank you Jesus! I have repented, with much remorse, for the many things I said and did when I was younger and foolish. I wish I could go back and fix it all, especially for one individual. Way back when we were in elementary school, I did apologize for what I did. as I was deeply sorry. She accepted it, but our friendship was over as her family did not want us to be friends anymore. I don't blame them, as it was all my fault. I was afraid of the ones who bullied her and instead of fighting them off, I joined in because I was so afraid of them they too, bullied me , but that is NO excuse. I wish I could go back and fight them, even if it meant getting myself beat up for it. I would have gladly taken a punch in the nose for her. For over fifty years I have been ashamed and full of guilt, and begged God's forgiveness. I just hope my former friend has a wonderful, blessed life, full of love and God's goodness, and is truly happy.

    So you are neither free to keep sinner because Jesus was the sin nearer. And you keep sinning throughout your lifetime. And you are neither free from dying because we all keep dying. And we are neither free from keeping the law because Jesus himself keep the Law ,that he came not to abolish but to fulfill from Genesis chapt.2:1,Exodus 20:where God himself wrote the 10 commandment Laws with his own finger, And Revelation 22:14, where keeping Gods Law is your ticket into Heaven. So we HAVE to keep the law of God and not the Mosaic law the kiiing of sheep etc. to appease for our sins,because the good shepherd died she'd blood himself instead of sheep dying anymore.Therfore all we have to do is pray kneeling ,bowing,laying prostrate on the ground ,or just calling on the name of the Ultimate Sheep-that. was sacrificed

    Romans 3 says there is nobody who is righteous or seeks after God. Jesus said none can come to him unless they are called by the Father. Satan has blinded the minds of all of the children of Adam. Romans 8:29-30 gives the solution to get people saved. Before the creation He predestinated people at random to be able to hear and understand the gospel when HE calls and we decide to reply to Him

    That is true. There is always a bright side, a silver lining to a cloud.
