Romans 8 Word Studies

artwork by Lori Bedo

Lori Bedo described this beautiful work of art on our Artful Story Journaling Facebook page, “I was going through some boxes in my art room and came across some pages from an old art journal. Though years have passed since these were made, I can still see that my eyes were on my Creator…the swirls of paint with a cross scraped in the midst…scrapes and smudges, smears and cuts, using a putty knife on globs of paint with a cross in the midst…loving Jesus…I have loved the Lord all these years and He has kept me close to His side through it all.”
I reflected on Lori’s inspired artwork as I listened to one of my favorite hymns from Selah, Before the Throne of God AboveBefore the throne of God above, I have a strong and perfect Plea; A great high priest whose name is Love, Who ever lives and pleads for me. My name is graven on His hands, My name is written on His heart. I know that while in Heaven He stands, No tongue can bid me thence depart. When Satan tempts me to despair, And tells me of the guilt within, Upwards I look and see Him there, Who made an end to all my sin. Because the sinless Savior died, My sinful soul is counted free, For God the Just is satisfied, to look on Him and pardon me. Behold Him there, the risen Lamb; My perfect spotless Righteousness, the great unchanging all I Am, The King of glory and of grace. One with Himself, I cannot die; my soul is purchased by His blood. My life is hid with Christ on high; with Christ, my Savior and my God…this inspired me to do these nine word studies from Romans Chapter 8...each week for nine weeks, I was inspired to dig a little deeper with word studies into these rich scripture passages which I wrap around my heart, like the Loving Arms of my Savior Jesus Christ…
