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.

    Really good advice and sound teaching. Thank you, 'disciple'.
  • Grace Simmonds
    Because the carnal mind is enmity against God, it is not subject to the things of God and can ever be. We have to ask the lord to place his righteousness on us, Isaiah 64:6 we are as an unclean thing, and our righteousness are filthy rags. Let us keep our mind on the things of the spirit, we cannot want to please God and do the things of the flesh, we have to crucify the flesh.


  • A disciple
    "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God." Romans 8:14 We have to examine ourselves whether we are in the faith: and cannot just read or listen to the Word without acting on it. If Jesus has freely received each and every one of us, and has forgiven our past and said that he would never again mention it to us how then does any Christian just sit there like a bump on a log and not be ALL ON FIRE to DO EVERYTHING THE LORD SAYS? How do we come to Jesus, and NOT set out to change our ways according to His Word and seek to please Him? Don't be misled to go running behind all the popular Show Masters and Impostors of the Church world! Get apart and separate yourself unto the Lord and sit at His feet BY YOURSELF, and HEAR HIS WORD! Find out now before He comes what it means and how to do what you need to be ready WHENEVER HE MAY SUDDENLY APPEAR! Quit running after men for them to tell you! The Lord will tell you Himself! Don't let anyone lie to you and twist things with misusing Scriptures to ensnare you, by saying You have to belong to a church, or, Don't forsake the assembly of the brethren. YOU'RE NOT! But you need first to FIRST SEEK THE LORD and sanctify and purify yourself by believing His Word and OBEYING IT under every trial and temptation then you will be ready for fellowship with the Saints, and will really be a blessing and be blessed in fellowship with them.

    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.
