Romans 8:1

Romans 8:1

There is not even the slightest, tiny crumb of condemnation at all those who are in Christ Jesus - those in UNION with Christ – those that have been placed IN Christ at rebirth – those who have been born-again – those that have been sealed by the Spirit - those that have trusted the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour.

The judgement that we rightly deserve has already been paid in FULL – paid with the blood of the Lord read more...

Romans 8:2

Romans 8:2

The failure of Romans 7, which came by carrying out works of the flesh in his own strength, ended in defeat for Paul, who cried out: oh wretched man that I am who shall deliver me from this body of death (i.e. the old sin nature). But his defeat blossomed into the liberation of chapter 8, with a shout of victory and thankful praise - No condemnation! for the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set us free from the law of sin and of death. read more...

Romans 8:3

Romans 8:3

The perfection of God and His perfect law cannot be carried out by imperfect man in the power of his fallen flesh for the old sin nature dictates that we are sinners and sinners cannot achieve perfection.

But God in His grace has done for read more...

Romans 8:6

Romans 8:6

The habits that we set up in our thinking, develops a fixed mental attitude, which pre-determines the way that we respond to life-situations - a mind-set that influences our reactions to the circumstances that touch our lives; a disposition that constructs a set of self-imposed values and perceptions about God, and other people, that may be twisted or false, unless they are founded upon the truth.

The mind-set of the read more...

Romans 8:9

Romans 8:9

As members of the fallen race of humanity we were born with a fallen nature - a carnal mind that can never, ever please God, for the thoughts and the intention of mans' fallen nature are only evil continuously. There is nothing in fallen man that can ever please God and even good deeds that impress other people are not pleasing to the Lord- for the unbeliever has a fallen, carnal nature. The natural, unsaved man, is dead in his sins and at enmity with God.

Romans 8:15

Romans 8:15

When we were released from the slavery of Satan’s dark kingdom of sin, death and fear we were transferred into God’s kingdom of life and light, hope and freedom.

Romans 8:19

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth, and all that He made was good.

There is no more beautiful name than the lovely name of the Lord Jesus. In Hebrew His name is Joshua, which means the Lord is Salvation, and His life and death was poured out to pay the price for humanities' sin - sins past, sins present and sins yet to be committed. But here we read that His name shall be called Jesus, because He was the One to save His people from their sins, and His people are in fact the Jewish nation, the people of Israel.

Too many Christians have not come to the glorious freedom offered in the Word of God, by the God of grace because they have a wrong perception of God Himself.
