Message of the Day: Cherish and Cultivate the Graces Which the Spirit Produces

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.” (Romans 8:15, NKJV)

Efforts to keep the law cannot produce righteousness, because the sinful nature is so bad it cannot be cured, or even improved. It can only be condemned to destruction, and Christ did this by his death on the cross. When, however, believers live according to the power of the Spirit, they can develop in their lives the righteousness that the law aimed at but could not produce. The mind cannot be controlled at the same time by both the old sinful nature and the Spirit. One results in hostility to God, the other in peace. One leads to death, the other to life. (8:3-8).

Those that are after the Spirit are influenced and led by the Spirit. As we therefore, have devoted ourselves to the service of the Spirit, and have been brought under his influence, it was to be expected that we would make it our great and only object to cherish and cultivate the graces which that Spirit would produce.
