Message of the Day: We Are United With Christ, We Are Controlled By The Holy Spirit

There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.” (Romans 8:1-2, NKJV)

The reason that we can have victory through Christ is that the power of the indwelling Spirit of Christ is greater than the power of the old sinful nature. The downward pull of the sinful nature may be likened to the downward pull of the earth’s gravity. A stone thrown into the air will fall to the ground, because it has no life or power to overcome the force of gravity. A bird thrown into the air will fly away, because it has a living power that enables it to overcome the downward pull of the earth. It has a new life, life which is greater than the law of gravity. Likewise in Christ believers have a new upward force of the Spirit that is greater than the downward pull of the old sinful nature. (8:1-2)

We triumph over the sinful urges of the flesh because we are united with Christ, we are under the controlling power of the Holy Spirit, who is life-giving.

  1. Thank you for this overcast of what is new through us, being made new in the risen Son, Jesus Christ, risen by Father for us to be risen too
    Presently

    Wow
    This reminded me of a caterpillar
    When we first born we are like a caterpillar
    Once anyone turns to belief in Jesus as risen accepted his death has taken away all sin for them ( 1John 2:1-4)
    12
    Our cocoon has begun it’s spin
    And we overcome it’s gravity
    As we we’re grounded now a butterfly
    Wow
    Thanking God Father and Son as Won (ONE) for us
    I needed this
