Keswick '19 - Ray Ortlund 2: Romans 8: 9-15
Romans 8: 9-15. The Swiss theologian Frederick L. Godet wrote regarding Romans, "The probability is that every great spiritual revival in the church will be connected as effect and cause with a deeper understanding of this book." How could it be otherwise? The gospel is "the power of God" for salvation (Romans 1: 16). And, to quote Martin Luther, Romans is "the very purest gospel". Of chapter 8 in particular, Octavius Winslow wrote, "It is not only all gospel, but it may be said to contain the whole gospel." The landscape of Romans 8 is crowded with strong comforts, supernatural helps, bold claims, honest acknowledgements and invincible promises. Here is real help for weak Christians, as we all are.
