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.
