10-16-2011 Romans 8:1-39 It's All About Certainty

At the end of chapter 7 in our study last week...we read that Paul said 24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

Even Paul struggled with sin of the flesh...but he thank God through Jesus that he could live to please God by the Holy Spirit that lives in him.

Now chapter 8 deals with sanctification.... cleaning of the Christians life by the Holy Spirit and coming to the reality of His presences and how He works in our life and gives us the security of salvation...

Chapter 8 of Romans is a great part of scripture..verse 1 says Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

The Holy Spirit continuity guides us from human or fleshly things to Spiritual or Godly things...we still sin but, we can't be condemned for our sin because Christ died for them.

The last 2 verses of chapter 8 says

38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

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.

There is another great promise of our security that we can never be separated from God....now we will look at the working of Jesus in our life by the Holy Spirit that He sent to live in every Christian and how He operates and tries to clean, and sanctify our lives.

**********Some questions to consider***********

1. Since Jesus came into your life... is there a since of guidance and presences of the Holy Spirit?

2. Since Jesus came into your life...can you look back and see the change in your own life?

3. If you were the Holy Spirit that lives within you...would you be satisfied that you live a holy life?

*************************

Romans 8:

9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

We live in the Spirit now but we struggle with the old self of flesh...and it's a war every day.

10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness

In other words: Now if Christ be in you, the body indeed is dead on account of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. He is saying here that you and I are in Christ, and since we are in Him, when He died, we died.

11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

These bodies that you and I have will be put in the grave one of these days.
