This is one of those WOW chapters. It starts off with a great promise in verse 1: So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.
But Paul then reminds us the importance of being controlled by the Spirit of God rather than our sinful natures and the importance of keeping our thoughts on the things of God. (vv. 5 - 11)
The promise that we are children of God and have the right to call him Abba Father! (vv. 12-17)
We also have the promise of help from the Holy Spirit, in our weaknesses, in our ability to pray. I also notice that Paul talks about how the Holy Spirit helps us when we don't know how to pray and it's after that verse comes the verse that gets thrown around way too often (and way too flippantly) verse 28: And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. I think we need the prayer piece to be able to appreciate in context with verse 28.
Finally, Paul reminds us that NOTHING can separate us from God's love!
