Scripture For Study Reflection: Romans 8:17-39 We have read it many times as believers in Romans 8:1 “There is no condemnation for those who are Christ Jesus” but do we live it as we truly believe it?
Does the condemnation scripture resonate with us in ALL circumstances or only when we think we are, “doing good?” When we are stumbling do we live as slaves to our sin?
Romans 8:15 says “The spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” What a relief to have this knowledge! You and I are his child and we can cry out Abba (Daddy) please help me in my weakness! In hope we are saved!
Romans 8:26 says, “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. We can never be separated from the love of God! (Romans 35, 36, 37).
Prayer for today: Abba Father, I know you love me and I no longer live under condemnation because of your Son Jesus. No matter where my life journey has taken me I am no longer a slave to my past. In hope I have been saved! My future is hopeful and full of promise because you my Father have called me to be your very own! Amen!
