THE SPIRIT GIVES LIFE!June 17, 2020
Daily Prayer for June 17th, 2020 ¬† ¬†
Good morning, Abba Father‚ÄĒthank you! ūüôā
There is no condemnation for me, as I am in Christ Jesus. Your son, whom you sent to live in the flesh, and die to condemn sin for me, set me free from the law of sin and death.¬†Believably, unbelievable, thank you, Jesus!! Holy Spirit, please help me to think of things from above. A mind governed by the world and flesh is death, but consciousness by the Spirit is life and peace. Thank you profusely that I am your heir, and get to share in your glory! In Jesus‚Äô name. Amen.
Romans 8 NIV
Life Through the Spirit
8¬†Therefore, there is now no condemnation¬†for those who are in Christ Jesus,¬†2¬†because through Christ Jesus¬†the law of the Spirit who gives life¬†has set you¬†free¬†from the law of sin¬†and death.¬†3¬†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,¬†4¬†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.
5¬†Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires, but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. 6¬†The mind governed by the flesh is death,¬†but the mind governed by the Spirit is life¬†and peace.¬†7¬†The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God;¬†it does not submit to God‚Äôs law, nor can it do so.¬†8¬†Those who are in the realm of the flesh¬†cannot please God.
9¬†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.¬†10¬†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.¬†11¬†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.
12¬†Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation‚ÄĒbut it is not to 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.
14¬†For those who are led by the Spirit of God¬†are the children of God.¬†15¬†The Spirit¬†you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again;¬†rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship.¬†And by him we cry,¬†‚ÄúAbba,¬†Father.‚ÄĚ¬†16¬†The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit¬†that we are God‚Äôs children.¬†17¬†Now if we are children, then we are heirs‚ÄĒheirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings¬†in order that we may also share in his glory.
