Episode 105 - Both Dead and Alive: The amazing promises of Romans 8

The most important of all spiritual themes is the idea of life and death. 


We are settling into our Free Praying the Promises Challenge, and today we’re focusing on a favorite promise in Romans!   


 But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.


There's a lot of life and death in those two verses. 


We're dead. “Now if we died with Christ…Count yourselves dead.” To what? To sin. 


We’re alive. 


We are now dead to sin and we are made alive to God. That means we are quickened spiritually to the things of God on a spiritual level that we were not aware of before.  


We don't have to rely on morality to do what's right. We don't have to rely on the law to keep ourselves in line. We are awakened and alive to the things of God because of Christ Jesus. 



All throughout the Word of God, we are dead in our sins. It is important to recognize that we could not save ourselves. God saved us and made us alive. 

We're alive, but we are claimed by the father of light. We are now joint heirs with Christ. We have the same inheritance as Christ.  Powerful, right? 

This instinctively causes us to ask, “How do I need to rely on the spirit of God right now? How can this transform my day today? How does this affect me now?” 

The answer is a lot. 

It brings a lot of resources to our life knowing that Jesus Christ, and the power that raised Him from the dead, is in us.

Join us and discover how God will transform your life as well with the power of his word.
