In Romans chapter 8 we come to a great verse on life and peace. After Paul in Romans spends many chapters on God’s condemnation of sinful man, and the justification only available through what God did in Jesus, we now come to chapter eight, a chapter about living in the Spirit. No matter what man could do to rescue himself, only God’s work could do this. Man with his great desire to please God, just cannot satisfy God’s requirement. Only the work that Jesus did on the cross could satisfy what God requires.
