Deliverance from Bondage
Today's Passage: Romans 8:1-8
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
1. So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.
2. And because you belong to him,
the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from
the power of sin that leads to death.
3. The law of Moses was unable to save us because of the weakness of our sinful nature.
So God did what the law could not do.
He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have.
And in that body God declared an end to sin's control over us
by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins.
4. He did this so that the just requirement of the law would be fully satisfied for us,
who no longer follow our sinful nature
but instead follow the Spirit.
5. Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things,
but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit
think about things that please the Spirit.
6. So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death.
But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace.
7. For the sinful nature is always hostile to God.
It never did obey God's laws, and it never will.
8. That's why those who are still under the control of their sinful nature
can never please God.
Romans 8:1-8 NLT
There are so many truths and powerful verses in this passage.
Try to narrow them down to ones that you believe God wants you to hold onto today.
Chose three important verses that speak to you today.
You wonderful Romans book is filled with grace teachings.
We sit before you and contemplate one of the most profound.
