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.

    "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!

    Election:God determined who be saved Man doesn’t seek after Rom 3:11

    The whole human race deserved destruction; but for reasons not perfectly known to us, God determined to recover some by regeneration and the power of his grace. He predestinated, or before decreed, that they should be conformed to the image of his Son. In this life they are in part renewed, and walk in his steps.
