Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Romans 8:14

_ _ Romans 8:14-27. Second: The sonship of believers — Their future inheritance — The intercession of the Spirit for them.

_ _ For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God, they, etc. — “these are sons of God.” Hitherto the apostle has spoken of the Spirit simply as a power through which believers mortify sin: now he speaks of Him as a gracious, loving Guide, whose “leading” — enjoyed by all in whom is the Spirit of God’s dear Son — shows that they also are “sons of God.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Romans 8:10-16.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Romans 8:14

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God — In all the ways of righteousness. They are the sons of God — Here St. Paul enters upon the description of those blessings which he comprises, Romans 8:30, in the word glorified; though, indeed, he does not describe mere glory, but that which is still mingled with the cross. The sum is, through sufferings to glory.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Romans 8:14

(16) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

(16) A confirmation of this reason: for they are the children of God who are governed by his Spirit, therefore they will have everlasting life.
