Wesley's Notes for Romans 8:14


8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God - In all the ways of righteousness. They are the sons of God - Here St. Paul enters upon the description of those blessings which he comprises, #Ro 8:30|, in the word glorified; though, indeed, he does not describe mere glory, but that which is still mingled with the cross. The sum is, through sufferings to glory.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 8:14


Ro 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God. Those who "through the Spirit mortify the deeds of the body" (Ro 8:13) are led by the Spirit. They obey it rather than the flesh. The presence of the Spirit in leading them shows that they are sons of God. How are they led? (1) They have given up their own wills to do God's will, and seek to obey him in all things. (2) To them the Spirit is given as a helper of their weakness, and by its aid they overcome the flesh (Ro 8:26). They are the sons of God. We become sons of God when we are born again, born of water and the Spirit (Joh 3:5), and we maintain the sonship by being led by the Spirit.

Discussion for Romans 8:14

  • Peter Armstrong Adzraku for verse 14
    The original word for sons used in Romans 8:14 is the word "Huos " which denotes the matured son of God. Therefore those who are led by the Spirit of God are the matured sons or Huos of God. Maturity in Christ is determined by the response of an individual to the leading of the Holy Spirit
  • Makhadi HE for verse 14

    So then you can be filled with the spirit and not be lead by it.
  • LUBABALO QOTOYI for verse 14
    I think every as Christians, we must contend to hear from God and to be led by the Spirit of God, that is what identifies us as the children of God, to be led by the Spirit of God.
