Notes:

Luke 1:46 and 47; John 12:27; 13:21 The word “spirit” at times, not often, is used as a synonym for “soul.”

Romans 1:4
The spirit of God that is freely given to believers most often is referred to as the holy spirit. 8:11, 9

1:9
Service is centered in spirit. 7:6; 1 Peter 4:10 and 11

2:28 and 29
That which makes a person a “Jew,” a chosen one, is the heart changed by the spirit.

5:5
The love of God is poured out in our hearts by the holy spirit.

7:5 and 6
We are freed from the Law and the passions of the flesh by the newness of the spirit.

8:2
The law of the spirit of life set us free from the law of sin and death.

Romans 8:4, 5, 6, 10
The spirit imparts life.

8:9
The spirit connects us to God.

8:11
The spirit is the earnest and guarantee of the coming resurrection. 2 Corinthians 5:5

8:13
By the Spirit, we put to death the deeds of the body.

8:14
We are led by the spirit.

8:15
The spirit enables us as sons.

8:16 and 17
The spirit bears witness with us that we are sons and heirs.

8:23
The spirit is the first installment or initial down-payment of the eternal heritage of glory. 2 Corinthians 1:22; 5:5; Ephesians 1:14

8:26 and 27
The spirit helps us with our prayer life. The spirit is our parakletos (John 14:16, 26; 15:26, 16:7). The spirit can direct us for whom and what to pray.

1 Corinthians 14:13-18
Speaking in tongues is prayer that gives thanks.

8:28
The verse does not say that God is the cause of all things, but that He can work out all for our good. Acts 5:1-12

8:29
Jesus was God’s only begotten and Mary’s first born. He is the first born from the dead. Colossians 1:18

He called you. Ephesians 1:4-12; 3:11; 1 Thessalonians 2:13-14; Philippians 3:20, 21

8:30
Glorifying is the climax, the purpose of God’s gracious predestination. Sanctification is progressive conformity to the mind or image of Christ here and now; glory is perfect conformity to the image of Christ in the future. Sanctification is glory begun; glory is sanctification consummated.

8:31-38 The triumph
