Romans 8; the flesh or the Spirit

Posted by adventbiblestudy on August 1, 2011


(Romans 8:13) For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

Giving into the temptations of the world will never achieve what I had expected. Satan will be working in the back ground, making certain any type of satisfaction, or personal gain will be short lived, and come at a high price. The highest price is the loss of eternal life. But when I live through the guidance of the Spirit, the Spirit will guide me away from temptation, and the lure of world, and I will gain eternal life.

 

(Romans 8:14) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

The Spirit will bring me closer to God, to reflect the image of Christ. Only the Sprit can create this change in me. Without the Spirit, I will drift further and further away from Christ. With the Spirit, I will grow to be more like Christ.

 

(Romans 8:15) For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

I do not want to have my feelings, emotions, and thoughts focused on lies and deceit which build fear and confusion. When that happens I have no place to turn but to DAD, the God and glory of the universe.

 

(Romans 8:16) The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

The Spirit of God changes me, recreates me, fashions me into an image of Christ, to be His disciple, to live my life as He lead His life. The Sprit equips me to be a proper witness for Christ.

 

(Romans 8:17) And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

Receiving God’s grace and glory, living a Christ like life brings me so close to Him, I will became a brother to Christ in God’s eyes, to share all the glory, and peace in Heaven.

 

(Romans 8:18) For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

The pain, suffering, and uncertainty I experience today, the disappointments, and trials I must go through can not compare with the blessings I receive when I turn to God. The life He has prepared for me when I follow after Jesus will all my heart.
