Romans 7 and 8

These two chapters have spawned much discussion throughout Christianity. Is Romans 7 Paul’s experience as an unbeliever? Is Romans 8 Christian nirvana, higher living?

If we want to do good and yet don’t do good, what does this say about us? What should our response be? Should we just throw up our hands, let sin rip, and yet have our minds in a happy Jesus state?

Romans 7 and 8 are very practical chapters. There are no mind games, denial of reality or anything else. Faith has always been the same–hear God and do what He says.

Thank God through Jesus Christ we have an advocate with the Father and we have also been given His Holy Spirit to help us kill off the deeds of the body and be led by the Spirit.

Here’s my summation of these two chapters. (You’ll need Windows Media Player to listen)

One thought on “Romans 7 and 8”

  1. For the LORD God is a sun and shield;
    the LORD bestows favor and honor;
    no good thing does he withhold
    from those whose walk is blameless.

    O LORD Almighty,
    blessed is the man who trusts in you
    (Psalm 84: 11-12)
    When we think God will not satisfy us, and stop trusting Him, that is sin in a nutshell. But blessed is the man who walks uprightly, and trusts in God for his heart satisfaction. Like you said Jeff, we have to go back to the cross, and to trusting Christ to fullfill us and satisfy our hearts. Good word brother.
