ONE GOSPEL TRUTH THAT MANY OF OUR CHRISTIAN BRETHREN DO NOT REALIZE IS THE FACT THAT IN CHRIST, WE ARE NO LONGER IN THE FLESH BUT IN THE SPIRIT. (Rom 8:9) But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you.”
YOU SEE, THE FACT THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT DWELLS IN US AFTER THE BORN EXPERIENCE IS WHAT MAKES US IN THE SPIRIT AND NOT THE GOOD WORKS WE HAVE DONE.
ADMITTEDLY, WE STILL COMMIT SIN, BUT IT DOES NOT MAKE US IN THE FLESH. FOR THIS REASON, WE ARE ADMONISHED TO WALK IN THE SPIRIT SO THAT WE WILL NOT GRATIFY THE DESIRES OF THE FLESH OR THE SINFUL NATURE.
(Galatians 5:16) I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
BEAR IN MIND THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT IS GOD’S SEAL OF OWNERSHIP AND GUARANTEES WHAT IS TO COME.
(2 Corinthians 1:21) Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.
IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
