Life in the Spirit 6

Download Today’s Audio☞ bit.ly/aud2041 Romans 8:5-6 (NET)  For those who live according to the flesh have their outlook shaped by the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit have their outlook shaped by the things of the Spirit. For the outlook of the flesh is death, but the outlook of the Spirit is life and peace Before Tochukwu became born again,  he had an outlook on life shaped by a fleshly humanistic world view. All he lived for was for himself and to make his life more comfortable and powerful. He literally lived for money because money was the key to comfort and power. But after Tochukwu accepted the Lord Jesus,  he observed that his walk with the Lord was not as fruitful as it was to be. He was very committed to church and service in the house of God. He gave a lot of his resources to the work of God. But he observed that he walked in no real spiritual authority and the signs Jesus said would follow they that believe were lacking in his life. He was Troubled about this because he was diligent in seeking the Lord but didn’t seem to […]

Life in the Spirit 5

Download Today’s Audio☞ bit.ly/aud2040 Romans 8:3-4 (NET)  For God achieved what the law could not do because it was weakened through the flesh. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and concerning sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, so that the righteous requirement of the law may be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. Sandra was born into a church where the rules were really strict. She was not permitted to wear jewelry,  makeup or any such outward adornment. They had very strict rules concerning food to be eaten and many such things. But Sandra was not born again. Sin was still her boss. When she was in university,  she got pregnant and had to abort it because ‘no one must hear about this’. She accepted the Lord Jesus in her final year and understood what it really meant to be born again. For the first time in her life, she knew she was righteous and there were the true fruits of righteousness in her life. This righteousness was not born out of the old sense of condemnation but born out of the consciousness of justification. Laws […]

Walk Above Condemnation

Posted on

Download Today’s Audio☞ bit.ly/aud2039 Romans 8:1-2 (KJV)  There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. Until the 13th century,  our Bible was not divided into chapters and verses because the scriptures were not written that way. It was Archbishop Stephen Langton and Cardinal Hugo de Sancto Caro that developed different schemas for a systematic division of the Bible in the early 13th century. It is the system of Archbishop Langton that formed the framework on which the modern chapter divisions are based. The first Bible in English to use both chapters and verses was the Geneva Bible published in the year 1560. Till today,  the best way to study scripture is not by isolating verses and reading them alone, it is by reading entire sections of scripture to get the main message. I would suggest that in order for a believer to properly understand Romans 8:1, he at least reads Romans 8:1-13 so he can get the thought of Romans 8:1 in the right […]

Faith Enhancing Virtues

Posted on

Download Today’s Audio: bit.ly/aud2038 2 Peter 1:5-8 (KJV)  And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. Sandi had been a believer for many years,  but her knowledge of God didn’t seem to be fruitful in her life. She was still sickly like all her unbeliever relatives,  was still living a life of fear like them,  and was still miserable from demonic assaults like them. Even though Sandi knew the Lord,  her knowledge of God was not fruitful in her life because after attempting to add virtue to her faith,  she didn’t add knowledge but stopped at the point. Unfortunately,  because she didn’t add knowledge to her faith,  she was a very ignorant shallow-minded believer who criticized other believers who sought to add knowledge. She didn’t have depth in spiritual understanding even though she thought she did. We see in today’s Bible verse that it is […]

Download Today’s Audio: bit.ly/aud2037 Romans 7:21-23 (NET)  So, I find the law that when I want to do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God in my inner being. But I see a different law in my members waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that is in my members.   Because Larry had explored a sinful life for long before he believed in the Lord Jesus, it was particularly difficult for him to live a victorious life above sin. He always wondered if it was possible for him to enjoy the victory over sin he knew was his portion in Christ. He knew what sin was because of the law of God he knew in his mind,  it was only that he did not seem to have the ability to overcome it. Larry started living in victory over sin after he learned certain important lessons from Romans 6-8. He realized that it was not by the law but by the Spirit that he could put to death the works of the flesh. Because of his communion with brethren with whom he was accountable,  his prayer […]

Standing In His Promises

Gbemi observed that he was not walking in many of the promises of God. He saw that he was not walking in divine health and there were many other areas of his life where the promises of God were not yet a reality. When this came to his notice, he started wondering and asking why this was the case with him. It didn’t take him long to see that the reason was because he lived with a guilty conscience. He worked in a clinic that made most of its profit from performing illegal abortions. Today’s Bible verse begins with the word ‘surely’. If you read Psalm 91:3 you will see that word used again. It says ‘Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler…’ One reason Christians do not walk in the promises of God is because many are not sure that they are qualified for them. Instead of saying ‘surely’ many […]

Life In The Spirit 3

Download Today’s Audio: bit.ly/aud2036 Romans 7:5 (KJV) For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. The law operates within the domain of the mind and all this is ruled by the knowledge of Good and evil. So even though in the old creation, a man under the law of God is far better than a man ruled by his flesh and native impulses or any other human code, when the new creation came, it became an aberration for people to still cling to a life ruled by the law when they can live lives ruled by the Spirit of life. Because we are still in a body of flesh, an understanding of the law would be a guide to help us know what the Spirit would never lead us to do, but our lives and hope of salvation should never be based on our ability to keep certain rules and regulations, but based on our relationship with the Spirit of the living God. The earnest/guarantee of our salvation is the Holy Spirit, not the law (see Ephesians 1:14). Those who subscribed to […]

Download Today’s Audio: bit.ly/aud2035 Romans 7:5 (KJV) For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. We saw yesterday that fleshly man is ruled by his mind and his mind is governed by the knowledge of good and evil. He does what he thinks is good for him and avoids what he believes is evil for him. Beasts are ruled by their fleshly impulses. They do not have the ability to retrain themselves from doing things their flesh wants even though they may know it’s not the right thing to do. Drug and substance addictions reduce people to the level of beasts- that’s a sorry state for a man to find himself. The problem with the law is that it appeals to our fallen weakness of living according to the principles of good and evil. Living that way is not good for man because man in himself does not have the ability to objectively ascertain good or evil. Man was designed to depend on God for His existence since we were created to be proxies of God in the material world. Acquiring the […]

Download Today’s Audio: bit.ly/audDev2032 Romans 7:5 (KJV)  For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death. Everyone born into this world was born with his reality centered in his flesh and mind. He would act according to the impulses of his flesh which controls his mind. When you see a baby crying,  it is because of an inconvenient fleshly impulse. As we grow older,  we begin to learn the laws of life and learn to be disciplined and act according to what we know in our minds to be good or evil. Animals are ruled by their flesh,  but humans are ruled by their minds,  guided by the knowledge of good and evil. But the truth is that a man ruled by his mind is still in the flesh because the flesh controls the unrenewed mind. Now, when a person is born again, he is to be brought out of all that. He is no more to be in the flesh and ruled by its impulses,  but he is to be in the spirit and ruled by the Holy Spirit who tabernacles it […]
