That is, when the mind lies still, and God the Holy Spirit writes his will upon it, and also writes God’s will. Can you say of any of them, Who shall separate us? The Spirit of the living God has entered into him, and become the master-power of his life. For it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. Whatever believers may be separated from, enough remains. I regret that they are not in heaven; it would seem to be a much more proper place for them than this imperfect earth is. Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. “There is therefore now” — at this very day, at this very moment, — “no condemnation” — none of any sort, — none that will lie in the Court of Conscience or in the Court of King’s Bench above: “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus.” Our forefathers used to read this verse, “There is therefore now no damnation.” One of the martyrs, being brought before a Popish bishop, the bishop said to him, “Dying in thy heresy, thou wilt be damned.” “That I never shall be,” answered the good man, “for there is therefore now no damnation to them which are in Christ Jesus.’” He had sought the very spirit of the text, for there is nothing that can condemn the man who is in Christ Jesus. “No condemnation”: that is the beginning of the chapter. A great many, but they are all nothing. That is to come at the resurrection. And heaven shall be a mirror chamber, wherein Christ shall be seen in every one of his people. If God be for us, who can be against us? The trump of the archangel shall proclaim it. The man, whose mind is under subjection to his body, minds “the things of the flesh.”. as Elias did! For the spirit will never die, and the spirit has that within it which will bring it perfect peace. Predestination comes in, and chooses a people for God who shall be eternally his. The predestinated are called, and the called are justified, and the justified are glorified. Romans 8:17-18. Not those who say they are “the sons of God,” but those who undoubtedly prove that they are, by being led, influenced, gently guided, by the Spirit of God. Water will rise as high as its source, but it will not naturally flow any higher. This is not merely something which shall eventually turn out right; it is all right now, “We know that all things are working together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” No sooner does the apostle mention that word “purpose” than he must needs found a long discourse upon it. Romans 8:15. Who shall lay anything to the charge of God’s elect? Does your spirit cry in that way tonight? “The whole creation.” It is the same word all through; so I have put the same word. She sits there, and licks her paws, and washes herself clean.” “I see that,” said the other. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: He did accomplish it. 30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. There are certain persons, nowadays, who say that we know nothing; yet the apostles constantly say, “We know this,” and “We know that.” These people tell us that there is a great distinction between believing and knowing,— but, evidently, it is a distinction of which the inspired apostles knew nothing at all. If we had the tongues of men and angels, what could we say? Romans 8:3-4. No, that is impossible; and if he does not lay anything to their charge, what cause have they to fear? All that God designed for glory and happiness as the end, he decreed to grace and holiness as the way. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God:”. if we never had the Spirit of Christ, we “are none of his.” We may plead our own goodness before the throne of God at the last; but Jesus Christ will say, “You have not my Spirit; you are none of mine;” and then, however much we may have striven to serve God, unless we have the Spirit of Christ, there shall be nothing for us but the fearful curse, “Depart! This precious chapter reminds us of the description of the land of Havilah, “where there is gold, and the gold of that land is good.”. It is God that justifieth. This is the question that should enter into each of our hearts. Then we try to rise up to our source, and we rise vastly higher than human nature ever can under any force that you can apply to it. Condemned sin in the flesh: that the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. They have been tried, I say. It keeps us down and hampers us, it is a hindrance to us, but we certainly owe it nothing; so let us not be subservient to it, let us not consult or even consider it, and especially let us never come under its fatal bondage. Some simpletons have said that Paul was not a converted man when he wrote the closing verses of that 7th chapter. Every creature stands on tip-toe, looking for the coming of Christ and the manifestation of the redeemed. Christian, Christ is the golden key of God’s treasuries; you have but to use him aright, and whatever you need shall be yours. Romans 8:32-33. If so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. My hearers, we are each of us, by nature, under the condemnation of God. But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it. 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. What shall we then say to these things? The great eternal purpose encompasses all things that happen, and bends all to the grand object of the good of the called ones. For which of these do we make provision, by which are we governed? For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. I do not think they will ever die. Do not believe this modern doctrine. But they are nothing, nor are all put together anything at all, as compared with him who is on our side. Romans 8:37-38. Flesh must die. Let me at least bow under thy hand.”. But the Spirit is life because of righteousness. Romans 1:1 identifies the Apostle Paul as the author of the Letter to the Romans. Romans 8:15. But he shall quicken your mortal body; that is to say, the same body, which is now subject to death, and so is mortal, is to be quickened at the resurrection. The body is dead because of sin: hence those headaches — this palpitation of the heart — this heaviness of the day which incases us: but by-and-bye, as the material world is to be delivered from its bondage, so shall these bodies also pass away from all the encumbrance of weakness, and disease, and death, into a better state. And if children, then heirs, heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. Romans 8:16. But ye have received the spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. It is God that justifieth. Let death go to death, and the flesh is such; but the newly-given spirit of God, the spirit who has quickened us with immortal life shall rule and reign in us evermore. It is an effectual call, from self and earth to God, and Christ, and heaven, as our end; from sin and vanity to grace and holiness, as our way. That the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. Whatever the spirit of God prompts us to pray for, is according to the mind of God, for it is not possible that the Holy Spirit should ever be otherwise than in perfect accord with the Divine Father. Our having received the first-fruits of the Spirit, quickens our desires, encourages our hopes, and raises our expectations. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Some would say that the context of the book of Romans is that it is Paulâs âtheological self-confessionâ. Do what thou wilt to me. Then, he gives you seven reasons why Romans 8 is the greatest chapter in all the Bible. We are lost in wonder, love, and praise. Believer! Glorious freedom from condemnation! Romans 8:35-37. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: If you live simply to gratify your ambition, if you live for avarice, if you live to please yourself, if you live for any earthly object which can be comprised under the term “after the flesh,” you will certainly be disappointed, for you will die, and your hope will die with you. “So then they that are in the flesh cannot praise God.”. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. Ye saints of Rome to whom Paul was writing, and ye who believe in Christ now: “Ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you.”. Though we may now seem to be losers for Christ, we shall not, we cannot, be losers by him in the end.18-25 The sufferings of the saints strike no deeper than the things of time, last no longer than the present time, are light afflictions, and but for a moment. If youâd like a real treat, watch a skillful student of Scripture in action. “Light afflictions” are contrasted with “an exceeding weight of glory.” Temporary afflictions, but for a moment, are to be followed by everlasting crowns that fade not away. Scripture: Romans 8:1â3. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. There must be the Spirit of God dwelling in us, or else we are none of his. Romans 8:28. Romans 8:28. “The Spirit helpeth our infirmities.”. Who shall lay anything to the charge of God’s elect? Romans 8:15. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified? This is a different fatherhood altogether. And this is not a bare statement, but an inference from powerful arguments. Thus much, however, we can say, for it concerns our struggles while we are here below. It is a fair world, but there is the shadow of the curse over it all. All creation is, as it were, watching and waiting on tip-toe for the day when God shall manifest his sons who are at present hidden. And the law, besides outward duties, requires inward obedience. Where God gives one of these blessings, he gives the rest. We need, none of us, stop short of the fullest stature of a man in Christ Jesus. There see some fruits of the earth that are not ripe yet. Romans 8:35. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. In a man’s family, only one son can be an heir; but in God’s family, of all is it declared “if children, then heirs.”, Not only heirs to God, but heirs of God. But there has been no triumph over the saints in this case. It may be read, “God that justifieth?” and properly may be read as a question. What a long list of ills! Christ offered once a complete atonement for all believers, and if I am a believer in him, there is no possible fear of my ever being condemned. He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who is he that condemneth? Romans 8:26. It has brought on the woes of earth; it has kindled the flames of hell. Romans 5:12: Who Wrote the Book of Romans? And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. Sin and death cannot govern me — cannot condemn me — cannot destroy me. They may wear the Christian name; they may perform some acts which look like Christian acts; but all this avails nothing. We were in bondage, and we have come out in a measure into the liberty of the children of God. brethren, if we could be all we should like to be, there would then be no room for the exercise of hope. depart! It is the creation groaning, travailing, waiting, — waiting till there shall be a new heaven and a new earth, because the former things shall have passed away. That glorification we cannot see as yet. But if we “are in Christ Jesus,” if we are made partakers of Jesus, if we have hidden ourselves in the cleft of the rock, Christ, and if our trust is solely in him, oh, precious thought, “there is therefore now no condemnation” for us. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. Romans 8:3-4. The apostle speaks as one amazed, and swallowed up in admiration, wondering at the height and depth, and length and breadth, of the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge. “Waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.” Oh! Have any of these things separated us from our Saviour? blessed fact! Romans 8:13. Itâs an ongoing series of 8â12 minute videos in which the camera is on the text, not the teacher. He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things! Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. This exposition consisted of readings from Romans 3:9-27; Romans 5:6-11; Romans 8:1-32. Shall we succumb under the sufferings of the body? See how it often weeps in the superabundant rain that seems like a minor deluge. Has the Spirit of God ever called thee? Exactly so; but that is what we assert,-that it never will be and never can be their inclination, except they are constrained to do so by the grace of God. As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long: we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Some of you who regularly attend this house of prayer, and others of you who stray in here in the evening, you “are in the flesh,” and you “cannot please God.” Perhaps you have been attempting to do it. The birth-pangs of the creation are on it; the living creature within is moving itself to break its shell, and come forth. It is so deeply vitiated, so thoroughly depraved, that so long as the fleshly mind exists, it will be in rebellion against God. If you let me out of prison today, I will preach tomorrow, by the grace of God.”. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” If ye sow to the flesh, ye “shall of the flesh reap corruption,” but if ye sow to the Spirit, ye “shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.”. God give us this to the full! If God be for us, who can be against us? But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. 2. Then will be the adoption. 27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. They are all working together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to his purpose. He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things ? indeed, what shall we say? For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. Has he done all this, and will he condemn us? He walks “not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”. The answer is: “Who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” My hearers, after which of these are you and I walking? This is the full redemption for which we are waiting. but you would fain have heavenly joy on earthly ground. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. O wretched man that I am! But as for us, our experience leads us, in sympathy with the apostle, to say that we are groaning after something better. Now we are getting upon a dear old passage which reads like music. The animal creation, too, wears the yoke of bondage. Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Romans 8:17. Did he shed his blood for you, and yet will he cast you into hell? Here too, we see the purpose of God’s foreknowledge and predestination, that we should be “ conformed to the image of his Son.”. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? It is a logical conclusion, too, from something that went before. If Christ’s Spirit has not quickened you, you do not belong to Christ. One is tempted to linger over that golden chain, and examine every link. The epistle is often the first book of the New Testament a new Christian will read. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. God having manifested his love in giving his own Son for us, can we think that any thing should turn aside or do away that love? Some foolishly say, “If God has ordained everything, what is the use of praying?” If God had not ordained everything, there would be no use in praying; but prayer is the shadow of the coming mercy which falls across the spirit, and we become in prayer in some degree gifted like the seers of old. We have already obtained salvation for our souls, but our body is still under bondage,— subject to weariness,— to pain,— to infirmity,— to death; but, by-and-by, with the new creation, our newly-moulded bodies shall be fit to live in the new world, and fit for our newborn souls to inhabit. He condemned sin in the flesh, but we escaped. 28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. This exposition consisted of readings from Psalms 66.; and Romans 8:1-9. The favour of God, the welfare of the soul, the concerns of eternity, are the things of the Spirit, which those that are after the Spirit do mind. If God be for us, who can be against us? That does not follow in other cases, but it does in the case of the family of God. Do you desire continually that he should be your supreme Guide and Leader? Contending against its usurpation, I have escaped from under its yoke, and I shall yet tread sin under my feet, and God shall bruise even Satan himself under my feet shortly.”. Chapters 1-5 tell us that we are justified by faith alone in Christ alone. 10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. Therefore, our heart is glad, and our glory rejoicing. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Saints’ prayers are prophets of God’s mercies. Christ will be reflected, and in a measure repeated, in all his people; and this shall be the very glory of heaven, that, look which way you will, you shall see either Christ himself or his likeness in his people. “If any man” — be he prince or magistrate, a member of Parliament or a doctor of divinity, — “ if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.”. Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. Romans 8:29. The words we are about to read follow a passage in which the Apostle describes the conflict of his soul. We did receive the spirit of bondage once. You, then, who find it difficult to pray, do not give up praying. “It shall bruise thy heel, but thou shalt bruise his head.” There is to be the heel-bruising for the Christ, as well as for us; but there is to be the head-crushing of sin and Satan for him and for us, too. So we rejoice notwithstanding all our afflictions, trials, and depressions. Improve it? 24 For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? Those in whom there is a new life begotten by the Holy Ghost — these mind the things of the Spirit. 1. But its time of glorifying is coming. The soul is already emancipated, and the body shall be, by the Spirit which dwells in you. It does not matter what he calls himself; he may be a preacher, he may be a bishop; but if he has not the Spirit of Christ, “he is none of his;” and if he has the Spirit of Christ, though he may be the most obscure person on earth, he belongs to Christ. But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it. The carnal mind is not only an enemy to God, but enmity itself. Whom he called, them he also justified. Hope contains the major part of our salvation within itself. Romans 8:17. He alone is Judge. Yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. I am free from it, for I am now under the new and higher ‘law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.”. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. Nay, he has already virtually given us all things in giving him to us. Its tendency is to corruption; but the spirit never dies. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. And if children, then heirs; It is not, of course, so in human families. These sufferings, however sharp, are short, compared with eternal glory, infinitesimal, not worthy to be taken account of; like one drop falling into a river and lost in it. (18-25) Their assistance from the Spirit in prayer. This is our present position, patiently waiting for “the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ,” patiently waiting for “the manifestation of the sons of God,” for “it doth not yet appear what we shall be; but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.”, There is much in this chapter about groaning, and that is but natural, for it so largely concerns our present imperfect state; but, by-and-by, there will be “No groans to mingle with the songs which warble from immortal tongues.”. There is a future even for materialism. But the soul that is in Christ, when other things are pulled away, cleaves to Christ, and these separations pain him not. Romans 8:28. While God is for us, and we keep in his love, we may with holy boldness defy all the powers of darkness.32-39 All things whatever, in heaven and earth, are not so great a display of God's free love, as the gift of his coequal Son to be the atonement on the cross for the sin of man; and all the rest follows upon union with him, and interest in him. It is Christ that died. To them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. They live for self-aggrandizement. The law could not condemn sin so truly and so thoroughly as God did when he condemned sin in the person of Christ. That is our state now; at least, it is the condition of the most of us. Romans 8:13. And whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. Did they stand as one to ten thousand, — or one to a million, — or one to a million of millions? How may I know whether I have been thus set free? And those brethren who say they never groan, I wish they would learn better. We groan in unison with a groaning creation, and we shall not at present get rid of our aches, and pains, and sicknesses altogether. This summary of the book of Romans provides information about the title, author(s), date of writing, chronology, theme, theology, outline, a brief overview, and the chapters of the Book of Romans. You know the revelation that is in the book; but how grand will be the revelation that is in the man! Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? For I delight in the law off God alter the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. How unnecessarily heavy have men often made that yoke! And all between is full of grace and truth. What a blessed system this is, which saves the sinner from the love of sin, delivers a man from sinning, gives him a new nature, and puts a right spirit within him! For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. There need be nothing else said, if this is true: “The Lord is my portion, saith my soul.” “Heirs of God,”. the things of the Spirit. “There is, therefore, now no condemnation” — at this very moment. The Holy Spirit, being himself God, knows the secret purposes of the divine will, and therefore moves the saints to pray in accordance with that will, and makes their supplications effectual through his own prevailing intercession. Romans 8:8. Bible Verse; Newest; Oldest; Most Viewed; Most Shared; Look at the Book. Now, again, he doesnât tell us when it was subjected to futility, but we already know when. It would be easy to select just about any verse from chapter 8 to be on the list. Every man is, by nature, under bondage to that which Paul describes as “the law of sin and death.” There is a law in our nature, which is so powerful that, even when we would do good, evil is present with us, and we cannot get away from that law, except by introducing another, which is “the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus,” Dr. Chalmers has a remarkable sermon upon it. 9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. There is no separating these golden links of love and mercy. Romans 8:32.
