Living In The Spirit : Part 1

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:1-2 NIV

This is awesome news for all of us. In Jesus, there is No condemnation. Before Jesus, we were all condemned to lying in a pool of our own sins. By the grace of God and the blood of Jesus we were set free from the law of sin. 

This does not mean that we have Carte Blanche to do what we want. As Christians, when we are saved through Jesus, God is revealed. With God’s grace, we receive the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit guides us and gives us wisdom and reveals Jesus to us. 

For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. Romans 8:3-4 NIV

We see a few things here. God condemned the flesh by sending His own Son in the likeness of the flesh. The law could not do that! The reason the law cannot do this ia because of our flesh.

The Holy Spirit is revealed to us and we can live in the Spirit. If you have ever been in the Spirit, you never want to leave. Why would anyone want to live in the flesh if they can live in the Spirit.
