From my reading in Romans 8:1-21 in the One Year Bible New Testament.
If you are a Christian who is letting the Holy Spirit control your life, then these truths are for you.
1. There’s No Condemnation For You
“So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.” Rom 8:1
2. You Are Set Free From The Power Of Sin
“And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death” Rom 8:2
3. You Can Experience Life And Peace Through The Holy Spirit
“So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace.” Rom 8:6
4. The Same Spirit Who Raised Jesus From The Dead Lives In You
“The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.” Romans 8:11
5. You’re Not Obligated To Follow The Sinful Nature
“Therefore, dear brothers and sisters, you have no obligation to do what your sinful nature urges you to do.” Rom 8:12
6. You Are An Adopted Child Of God, Not Fearful A Slave.
“So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” Rom 8:15
7. You Are A Heir Of God’s Glory
“And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God’s glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.” Rom 8:17
8. You Will Experience Freedom From Death And Decay In Heaven.
“The creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay.” Rom 8:21
