Romans 8

Romans 8… day 29…

And those whom he predestined, he also called,
and those whom he called he also justified,
and those whom he justified he also glorified.
Romans 8:30 ESV

You are predestined… to be conformed to the image of His Son…
You have also been called…
“Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name, you are mine. …”
Isaiah 43:1 ESV
and justified…
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith,
we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans 5:1 ESV
and glorified…
For it was fitting that he,
for whom and by whom all things exist,
in bringing many sons to glory,
should make the founder of  their salvation
perfect through suffering.
Hebrews 2:10 ESV
I think back to where we first began… 

There is therefore now no condemnation
for those who are in Christ Jesus.
Romans 8:1 ESV
How hard this truth is to believe… to walk in whole-heartedly…
This chapter is all about understanding the spiritual life… being Spirit led… while still walking around in flesh…
It’s about… understanding who we are in Christ…
We are consumed… at times… with the guilt of our sin… past and present…
We wonder if our suffering… is the just punishment… of an awesome God…
Paul tells us… we are new…
things are not always the way they seem…
there is something more going on…
You have been called by name…
justified by faith…
glorified by grace…
Believe it…
You… are… more…
