Romans 8:1 “Therefore” swings us back to all that precedes. The condemnation was our eternal reality, not our feelings.

Romans 5:15-21
Before we accept the lordship of Christ, we are condemned, and our destiny is the wrath of God.

Romans 7:21-25
In spite of our flesh with its rebellion and covetousness, there is now in Christ no condemnation.

8:2
Two contrasting laws are -- law of sin and death and law of spirit of life in Christ. The word “spirit” occurs 21 times in this chapter.

3
The Law is referring to the Mosaic Law and the information from chapter 7.

4
The requirement of the law profusely communicated was the sacrifice of an innocent for the guilty -- the type for the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. “Walk” literally means to live.

5
First place the Greek word for mind “phroneo” occurs is in Matthew 16:23. The great question remains: “Am I born again?” “Am I saved?”

6
Death or life and peace

8
Strong words

9-14
What moves you?

15-17
The spirit connects us with God. The great hope is before us.

18-25
The whole of creation is not right and waits for the glorious day.

26-27
The spirit helps us. In John, Jesus called it the “Helper.”

28-39
Our Magna Carta is stated clearly.
