What is your biggest hope once we’re free from the immediate threat of the COVID-19 virus? 

Freedom from Judgment Romans 8:1-4

We’ve been freed from:

  • The law (principal) of sin and death
  • The guilt of sin
  • Our personal weaknesses and human limitations
  • The coercion of the Law
  • Through Jesus Christ


Freedom from Defeat Romans 8:5-17

Where does the Holy Spirit lead us?

  • He leads us into truth (John 14:17)
  • He leads us to remember his teachings (John 14:26)
  • He leads us to Jesus. (John 15:26)
  • He leads us to testify about Jesus. (John 15:27)
  • He leads us to  (John 16:5-10)
  • He leads us to confess our faith. (1 Corinthians 12:3)
  • He will lead us and others to acknowledge and bring glory to Jesus (John 16:14-15)
  • He leads us to a deeper conviction of our status as children of God (Romans 8:16)


Freedom from Discouragement Romans 8:18-30

We’ve been saved!

  • We have been saved (Ephesians 2:8-9)
  • We are being saved (1 Corinthians 1:18; 2 Corinthians 2:15; Philippians 2:12)
  • We will be saved (Romans 8:24-25; 10:9, 13)


Freedom from Fear Romans 8:31-39

We are more than conquerors through Christ.

  • He overcomes with a greater power, the power of Jesus
  • He overcomes with a greater motive, the glory of Jesus
  • He overcomes with a greater victory, losing nothing even in the battle
  • He overcomes with a greater love, conquering enemies with love and converting persecutors with patience


A riddle: What is greater than God, more evil than the devil? The poor have it. The rich need it. If you eat it you will die.

Answer: Nothing.

Question: What will separate us from the Love of God in Jesus Christ? NOTHING. Thanks be to God!
