Our text reference is Romans 8:1-4.
After describing the great struggle against sin that continues in the believer’s life, Paul gives a wonderful and encouraging pronouncement to help us. Remember the context in Romans is the relationship between justification and sanctification. Paul continues to talk about the benefits we have in Christ for salvation.
We will consider these 4 points:
- The good news declaration. (v. 1)
- The reason for it. (vv. 2-3)
- The purposed result. (vv. 4)
- Application to us in Christ.
