Magna CartaBy Rev. Vince Finnegan on 02/17/2019
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.
