Living In The Spirit: Part 3

You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. Romans 8:9 NIV

As Christians, we are not to yield to the flesh. We are to yield to the Spirit of God for it lives in us and guides us and never points fingers. If we do not have the Spirit of Christ, we do not belong to Christ. Wow! There is no twisting of words. Just straight and to the point.

But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. Romans 8:10 NIV

Here is another amazing fact. Our bodies may be subject to death in sin. The Spirit gives us life and leads us into righteousness. This is one of God’s many awesome gifts for us. He calls us to a life of righteousness and had given us all the tools that we need. Amen?!

And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. Romans 8:11 NIV

Here is the most amazing part. Let this sink in for a second. The Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead is in us. It raises us from our death and sin and gives life to our mortal bodies. We are so blessed to be amongst God’s many children.
