I finished studying the book of Joshua today then re-read Romans 8...so many beautiful nuggets of Truth!
Paul teaches and challenges the church in Rome, as he expounds throughout chapter 8 in Romans, reminding the Believers of their place and obligation in the kingdom of God. Following are excerpts of Paul’s words that remind and teach us today…
Vs, 9 - “You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ.”
Vs 32 – 35 – “…If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies.Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
Vs. 37 - 38 - “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
It's a great assurance to know that we are given God’s power, through the work of Jesus Christ and through the Holy Spirit, to live a life DEVOTED to serving Him and living in purity…for the Glory of God! And now, I tell myself…LIVE IT!
