Romans 8 picks up where Romans 5 left off
The Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus!
There is not a single imperative in Romans 8!
There will be commands to us in relation to the Holy Spirit in later epistles.
The first command to us, to church age believers, related to the Holy Spirit, appears to be in the book of Galatians.
So much foundation truth about who the Spirit is and what His ministry is to us comes before we are ever given a command related to the Spirit.
It is who He is and what He has done and is doing that is primary.
We come into that picture and co-operate with Him in these things.
He regenerates us - we are born again by the Spirit.
He is our Helper, and the Spirit of truth.
The Holy Spirit teaches us all things, reminding us of Christ’s teachings.
The Spirit has poured the love of God into our hearts as a permanent blessing.
He enables us to understand the wisdom of God.
The Spirit distributes Spiritual gifts to each member of the body of Christ.
