For i am_persuaded-romans_8


Published on

A sermon-presentation on Romans chapter 8, King James Bible. Romans 8 is a chapter that begins with the statement that those who follow The Spirit are free from death, it ends with a passionate declaration of God's love for ALL mankind. Along the way the Apostle Paul shows in clear reasoning that we are free from death which is the ultimate separation from God. But that freedom comes with a price which is the suffering and death of Jesus and our acceptance of that truth by our willingness to cast off our carnal natures and seek the Spirit. By sharing in Christ's experience we, individually, and collectively as a body of believers, come into a brotherhood with with Jesus and are able to share in His inheritance from God. And finally in the home stretch Paul puts the whole thing in perspective by his declaring that nothing can separate us from the LOVE of GOD.
