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

  • J.McAdow
    Jesus always loves contrary to the worlds standards in terms of individuals he so chooses that also necessarily choose Him. Even our shameful nakedness could not make him turn away. Regarding sin. We are exposed. Our physical bodies in its flaws. Exposed. Allof our unattractiveness. Completely noticeable and apparent. Yet nothing can separate us from His all-powerful love.

    God wants everybody not just Israel, Moses stood in the gap for Israel but Christ stands in the gaps for the whole world,If I be lifted up i will draw all all men unto me. SCRIPTURE SAYS EVEN THE ISLANDS OF THE SEAS SHALL BE CONVERTED UNTO ME,GOD IS NO RESPECTOR OF PERSONS GOD SO LOVED TH WORLD, Jesus said out of the hearts of man proceeds all manner of evil, HE STOOD IN THE GAP FOR HUMANITY GBU.
  • A disciple
    "The whole human race deserved destruction..." We hear this kind of preaching a lot; and I have to admit, I too have parroted this idea. But we should really pay attention to the meaning in so many of the Lord's parables, about lost sheep, lost sons, etc. and the love and tender mercy of God, and His view of a lost and sinning world! Neither do I condemn thee; go, and sin no more! Freely forgiven!
