We are being blessed as we memorize Romans 8 together:
“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus because, through Christ Jesus, the law of the Spirit of Life set me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending his own son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin sacrifice. And so he condemned sin in sinful man in order that the righteous requirement of the law be fully met in us who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the spirit.
‘Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what nature desires but those who live in accordance with the spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.”
And the next verse:
“The mind of sinful man is death but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace.”
What a great promise!
Life and peace!
I love it!
This section of scripture seems full of long sentences and difficult wording….until we get to this sentence.
Simple. Direct. Life-changing!
When our minds are controlled by the Spirit, we have life (like God wants us to have) and peace.
Thank you, Abba Father.
