The Triune God Will Also Give Life to Our Mortal Bodies

Let's Pray:

Lord, you chose us before the foundation of the world, and You created us and called us. You have also redeemed us and have dispensed Yourself into us. Lord, we thank you.

Hymn:949
Today's Verses: Rom 8:7-27
Key Verse:

Rom 8:11

 

And if the Spirit of the One who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who indwells you.

Footnotes:
In this verse we have (1) the entire (Triune) God— “the One who raised Jesus from the dead,” “(Christ),” and “His (Spirit) who indwells you”; (2) the process required for His dispensing, as implied in the words Jesus (emphasizing (incarnation)), Christ (emphasizing crucifixion and (resurrection)), and raised (emphasizing resurrection); and (3) His (dispensing) of Himself into the believers, as shown by the words give (life) to your mortal bodies, which indicate that the dispensing not only occurs at the (center) of our being but also reaches to the circumference, to our (whole) being. (See Rom 8:11 note 2)
