No Longer Slaves

So after a long week in Vegas, I am back trying to grind out the word of God. Being away from my normal routine always makes the time pass slowly. I am glad to be currently at my desk. Let’s dive in to today’s word. Romans 8 15 For you did not receive the spirit [...]

Seek First the Kingdom

Romans 8 12 Therefore, brothers and sisters we have an obligation – but not in the flesh, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.” New King James: 12 [...]

Spiritual Minds, Create Physical Benefits

Romans 8 10 And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies [...]

According to Flesh, or Spirit?

Romans 8 5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be [b]carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. In my opinion, this is [...]

Walk according to the Spirit

Romans 7 25 I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin. As my blog post yesterday said, here is the war inside Paul spoke of. He even suggests that his flesh is always serving the law [...]

The Inside War

Romans 7 21 I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. 22 For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into [...]

Will Power Fail

Romans 7 20 Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. 21 I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. 22 For I delight in the law of God [...]

What a mouthful…. Sin, Sinning, Sinful….

Romans 7 13 Has then what is good become death to me? Certainly not! But sin, that it might appear sin, was producing death in me through what is good, so that sin through the commandment might become exceedingly sinful. We need sin to appear sin, because it always wants to hide in us and [...]

Sin Entices

Romans 7 7 What shall we say then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin except through the law. For I would not have known covetousness unless the law had said, “You shall not covet.” 8 But sin, taking opportunity by the commandment, produced in me all [...]

I fought the Law, and I won.

Romans 7 Or do you not know, brethren (for I speak to those who know the law), that the law [a]has dominion over a man as long as he lives? 2 For the woman who has a husband is bound by the law to her husband as long as he lives. But if the husband [...]
