TEXT: ROM. 8: 6 – 14

I have come to learn from the scriptures that no man can please God unless he is led by the spirit – John 6: 63

The reason why many do0 not leave above sin is that they are still dwelling in the fresh – 1Cor. 3: 3, old things have not yet passed away in their life – 2Cor. 5: 17

God in His mercies called us from the world – Col. 1: 13

  • Gave us His Holy spirit – Act 2: 38
  • For us to be like Him – Col. 3: 10; Matt. 5: 48
  • That we should be His dwelling place – Eph. 2: 22
  • And, sealed us unto the day of redemption …..

NOTE: The Holy spirit may depart from any of us if we do not hold fast the word of God – 2 Tim. 1: 13; 1 Tim. 1: 19

  • Love
  • Joy

We should only bear these fruits by being in Christ – John 15: 1 – 8

When you walk in the spirit, it will be easy to respond to the call of preaching the gospel – Matt. 28: 19; Mark 16: 15

The fellowship of brethren is a spiritual thing, so when you are in the spirit, you will be responsible to assemble with the brethren – Heb. 10: 25; 5: 14; Heb. 3: 13

Benefits of Working in Spirit

  • We will not fulfil the lust of the flesh – Gal. 6: 16
  • We stand blameless before God – Eph. 1: 3 – 5
  • Free from condemnation – Rom. 8: 1
  • God hears our prayer – John 9: 31

Lastly, let us walk in the spirit so that at the end we boldly say like the apostle Paul in 2 Tim. 4: 7 – 8

May God help us to walk in the spirit in Jesus name – Amen
