The Spirit of God Dwells in You

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:1 -

Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:2 - For the law of the Spirit of life [fn]in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:3 - For what the Law could not do, [fn]weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of [fn]sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:4 - so that the righteous requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:5 - For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:6 - For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:7 - because the mind set on the flesh is at enmity toward God, for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:8 - and those who are in the flesh are not able to please God.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:9 -

However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:10 - But if Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is [fn]alive because of righteousness.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:11 - But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies [fn]through His Spirit who dwells in you.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:12 -

So then, brothers, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:13 - for if you are living according to the flesh, you [fn]must die, but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the practices of the body, you will live.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:14 - For as many as are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:15 - For you have not received a spirit of slavery [fn]leading to fear again, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons by whom we cry out, “Abba! Father!”
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:16 - The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:17 - and if children, also heirs, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.

Present Suffering and Future Glory

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:18 -

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:19 - For the anxious longing of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:20 - For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in hope
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:21 - [fn]that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:22 - For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:23 - And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our body.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:24 - For in hope we were saved, but hope that is seen is not hope, for who hopes for what he already sees?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:25 - But if we hope for what we do not see, with perseverance we eagerly wait for it.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:26 -

And in the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness, for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words;

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:27 - and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the [fn]saints according to the will of God.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:28 -

And we know that for those who love God [fn]all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:29 - Because those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brothers;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:30 - and those whom He predestined, He also called; and those whom He called, He also justified; and those whom He justified, He also glorified.

God Is for Us

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:31 -

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us?

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:32 - He who indeed did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him graciously give us all things?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:33 - Who will bring a charge against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:34 - who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was [fn]raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:35 - Who will separate us from the love of [fn]Christ? Will affliction, or turmoil, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:36 - Just as it is written,



Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:37 -

But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:38 - For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 8:39 - nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
