  4. Certainty in Uncertain Times 28And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Mindset for Peace Sovereignty for Good Future is Now Romans 8:28 PEACE Let’s Pray
  5. Mindset for Peace 28And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Great promise! Can you claim it? There are conditions… Romans 8:28 Let’s look back at the beginning of Romans 8 as we consider these conditions.
  6. Mindset for Peace Called according to His purpose Those who love God Romans 8:1-4 1Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. 3For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, 4so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
  7. Mindset for Peace Called according to His purpose Those who love God Romans 8:1-4 1Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. 3For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, 4so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
  8.

No condemnation for you! Spirit of life in Christ has set you free from the law of sin and death! What the Law could not do in your flesh, God did in Christ! You have been freed, saved, invited, called from bondage to God’s purposes! This is not your personal achievement, it’s God’s achievement If you’ve received Christ into your life, then you’ve simply answered His call Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me. 
  9. Mindset for Peace Called according to His purpose Those who love God Romans 8:1-4 1Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. 3For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, 4so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. God sent His Son as an offering for your sin so that the “requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in (you)” You are not perfect, but through Christ, God sees that His Law is fulfilled in you! There are many requirements of the Law, but Jesus tells us the greatest requirement: 35One of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, 36“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” 37And He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38“This is the great and foremost commandment.” (Matthew 22:35-38)
  10.

Do you have faith that, through Christ, God can see that you love Him with all your heart, and soul, and mind? You will not achieve this kind of love for God in your flesh Your discipline and your works will not take you here This is the lives of the Pharisees to whom Jesus spoke This is a life that leads to false pride or real despair 35One of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, 36“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” 37And He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38“This is the great and foremost commandment.” (Matthew 22:35-38)

Do you have faith that, through Christ, God can see that you love Him with all your heart, and soul, and mind? You will not achieve this kind of love for God in your flesh Your discipline and your works will not take you here This is the lives of the Pharisees to whom Jesus spoke This is a life that leads to false pride or real despair Love is an emotion/fruit. It happens. Loving God is the right emotion God uses your faith that He sees you loving Him to help you experience loving Him As you apply faith to the way He sees you, you don’t “feel” guilt, you “feel” love When you feel love for God, you also feel peace (another emotion)
  12.

  13. Mindset for Peace Called according to His purpose Those who love God Romans 8:1-6 1Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. 3For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh,4so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. 5For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. 6For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace. Set your mind on His work for you and the results of that work, not your flesh (have faith!) The Spirit beckons you to have faith in His calling of your life But the Law appeals to your flesh for performance By faith, see your love for God as God sees it: Through Christ’s blood Be encouraged to consciously experience this love for God He is glorified and you are blessed with real love for God! This is a Mindset for Peace
