Week 43   Day 6


Here's the good news--

Sin can separate us from God

            but nothing can separate us

            from the love and grace of God



Romans is a book about change

            a book that can change your life 

            that can change the way you think 




If you believe what's written here

it will do wonders for you attitude

                              for your soul. 




When he writes

every road Paul goes down

always returns full circle

            back up to the top

            where he is praising God 


He took us down through that discussion of sin 

            to bring us back up to this triumphant chapter 

There is no condemnation

            to those who live in Jesus 

            and set their minds on the goodness of God


Being children of Abraham is good 

            but it is nothing compared to

            being children of God.




                               FAITH IS THE VICTORY

Live as though Christ has already defeated sin and death.

                                            Romans 8


    1There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are

in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but

according to the Spirit.  2For the law of the Spirit of life in

Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.

    5Those who live according to the flesh set their minds on

the things of the flesh; those who live according to the Spirit,

the things of the Spirit, 6and this mind is life and peace.

    14As many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the

children of God.  15You did not receive the spirit of bondage

again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom

we cry out, "Abba, Father."  16The Spirit Himself bears witness

with our spirit that we are children of God, 17and if children,

then heirs--heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed

we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.

    18The sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be

compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.  24We
were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope;
why does one still hope for what he sees?  25But if we hope

for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.

    26The Spirit also helps in our weaknesses.  We do not know

what we should pray for, but the Spirit makes intercession for us

with groanings which cannot be uttered.  27He who searches the

hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes

intercession for the saints according to the will of God. 

    28All things work together for good to those who love God,
to those who are the called according to His purpose. 

    31What then shall we say?  If God is for us, who can be

against us?  32He who did not spare His own Son, how shall

He not with Him also freely give us all things?  33Who shall

bring a charge against God's elect?  It is God who justifies. 

34Who is he who condemns?  It is Christ who died, and

furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of

God, and makes intercession for us. 

    35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?  Shall

tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness,

or peril, or sword?  37Yet in all these things we are more than

conquerors through Him who loved us.  38 I am persuaded

that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor

powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39shall be able

to separate us from the love of God which is in Jesus our Lord.
