Wesley's Notes for Romans 8:10


8:10 Now if Christ be in you - Where the Spirit of Christ is, there is Christ. The body indeed is dead - Devoted to death. Because of sin - Heretofore committed. But the Spirit is life - Already truly alive. Because of righteousness - Now attained. From #Rom 8:13|, St. Paul, having finished what he had begun, #Rom 6:1|, describes purely the state of believers.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 8:10


Ro 8:10 If Christ [be] in you. Christ is in us by his Spirit. Notice that the indwelling of the Spirit of God, having the Spirit of Christ, belonging to Christ, having Christ in us, are all varied expressions of the same great fact. The body [is] dead because of sin. Our bodies have died physically because death came into the world through sin. But the Spirit [is] life. Our spirit is made alive by union with Christ, and partaking of his righteousness.

Discussion for Romans 8

  • Ray321
    Romans 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: JESUS NEVER SINNED. Glory be to God for his only begotten Son that died for our sins and rose from the dead three days.
  • Rev Franklin Miller
    As for Vs. 38-39, I agree that nothing can separate us FROM the love of God. God loves the sinner also such as we were before becoming Christians. However we CAN separate our love FROM Him by our willful and negligent sin. 1st John 2:"4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments is a liar and the truth is not in him." This is willful and negligent sin and NO sin enters Heaven.
  • Deborah

What you say, what you do, how you are, whst you feel, in shirt everything. Anybody can dummy up a blissful smile and say praise, praise, but not everyone can please God. He is real and does not fall for lies
