Wesley's Notes for Romans 8:2


8:2 The law of the Spirit - That is, the gospel. Hath freed me from the law of sin and death - That is, the Mosaic dispensation.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 8:2


Ro 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life. The Spirit of life must be the Holy Spirit. The whole phrase is equivalent to the Gospel, which has been given to men by the agency of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit has quickened us into a new life, and as we have died to the law and to sin, we are freed from them. Wesley says that the meaning is the "Gospel has freed us from the Mosaic law". That the law of the Spirit of life describes the Gospel is shown by Ro 8:3, which explains this verse.

    Nothing will sperate us from the L O V E of G O D. Even this moment the world is passing through a difficult phase in the hands of populist government! May we not be weary, may we not be discouraged because He that is in us is greater than he that is the world. Praise be to His name...Amen!

    Romans chapter 8 and 28 I love that verse it sticks out for me do anyone else agree
  • A disciple
    "God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:" This was the word from the very beginning, how God would send the Saviour to undo what the devil had done to man. This is what Jesus meant by; "Whoever believes in me, is not condemned" God's thoughts toward us are of saving us from our sins, and making us like Himself, and He give us eternal life.
  • Stephende
    In this chapter Paul presents a "either/or" argument whether we live in the Spirit or the flesh. To live in the Spirit is not yours for the taking but God gives it as He will to those woh truly love the Father, glory be to him. Our will whilst we live in the flesh is corrupt, tainted by lies, corruption, greed, idolatry, lust of the flesh, evil leaders AKA Trump, insincere righteousness, ect
