At the 40:40 mark in this 2014 conference message on Romans 8 (https://www.desiringgod.org/messages/free-from-judgment-fighting-sin-full-assurance), Piper discusses the meaning of the word ‘for’ that connects Romans 8 verses 1 and 2. As background, he explains that in both English and Greek we use the word ‘for’ for two types of grounds: (1) a ground that is a ‘cause’ (e.g. “I’m hungry for (because) I skipped breakfast”), and (2) a ground that is an ‘outcome/evidence’ (e.g. “I’m hungry for (the evidence is) my stomach is growling”. The first of these is a cause, the second is an outcome or evidence.
He argues that the ‘for’ that connects Romans 8 verses 1 and 2 is the second type, and paraphrases as follows: “For the evidence is plain (!), the spirit has been poured out into your life and you are being changed and defeating the law of sin as an outcome of having been justified, in response to which God poured the Holy Spirit into your life and begin to change you.”
My question is: Should we use the Ground connector to show this second type (outcome/evidence) of Ground relationship, or is there a better way to show this type of relationship?
