DON'T WALK AS THE WORLD WALKS!
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
Brothers, we are now made free from sin and death by our Lord Jesus.
Romans 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
Before Jesus lived and died for us the people of this world were under the law, and the law being weak because of mans sinful flesh and walking carnally. Then God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for our sins, condemned sin in the flesh.
Romans 8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Romans 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
Romans 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Brothers, by being saved from death by our Lord Jesus. We walk in the Spirit of God who dwells in each of us who are saved. But, those who continue to mind the things of the flesh are lost and have condemned themselves to death.
Romans 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
Romans 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
Brothers, those who are in the flesh cannot please God, because their carnal (worldly) minds are the enemy of God, and are against God.
Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
God tells us plainly here that if any man does not have the Sprit of Christ Jesus, then he is not God's child.
Romans 8:10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
Our flesh is dead, it died when we accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savour.
Romans 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
Romans 8:12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
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.
Because, the Spirit of God dwells in us, we one day shall be quickened by the Holy Spirit just as Jesus was quickened from the dead and now sits at the right had of God.
Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
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.
We are God's sons, verse 14, if we are led by the Spirit of God. He tells us here that we are not bound by fear, which is of the carnal flesh and of the world. But, rather we have received the Spirit of adoption, where by we cry, Abba, Father. Praise God! We who know Jesus as our Lord and Savour will never know death nor fear death. For we are to live life eternal, walking in the Spirit not in the flesh.
Brothers, please accept this truth and turn away from your flesh which is dead. For we are Spirit, we are life, we are blessed of God the Creator, we are saved by the precious blood of Jesus.
Walk in that salvation, and if you do not know Jesus as your Lord and Savour, then please accept him now while there is still time, and know the peace that comes from God.
God Bless you my brothers in Christ, and those who will soon be my brothers.
