Romans Ch.8: Sanctification.

Romans 8 – Sanctification – vs.8 “and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.” vs.11 “but if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to you mortal bodies through his Spirit who indwells you.” vs.14 “For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God.” We are sanctified by living in the Spirit. Since Adam, the whole world was under the law of sin and death, but now all creation eagerly awaits that new world where the sons of God are revealed. God knew us from the foundation of the world and what we would do. The ones who were predestined to become conformed to the image of Jesus, making him the first born of many brethren. Those whom God knew would serve him, he called. Those that are called are justified, God sees us as finished products and are glorified with him. This is God’s plan for his children. (election and predestination).
This doesn’t give us a license to do what we want. God sees the beginning and the end. He knows who will endure to the end. “For many are called, but few are chosen.” There is nothing that can separate you from God, except you.
