We are already half way done with Romans can you believe it? Thanks again to everyone who is reading and posting! Keep it up you are all doing great! :)
The first part of Romans 8 talks about how the law could not save us because of our sinful nature. So God sent his son Jesus to save us. Then it talks about how people who think of sinful things will never please God. But people who think of good things will always please God. Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. (Romans 8:5 NLT). Then it says that when Jesus is with us we are forgiven, and because he is in us we belong to God. Because of this it says: And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In God's glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering. (Romans 8:17 NLT).
Next it talks about how God knows about us, how he knows what we need even before we pray for it. It also talks about how God helps us in times of need. And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don't know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. (Romans 8:26 NLT). Has there ever been a time when you knew you had to trust God?
What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who could ever be against us? (Romans 8:31 NLT). This verse is talking about how if God is with us then we can do anything because he will take care of us. Then in chapter 8 it starts talking about how we can never be separated from the Lord.
