SPIRITUAL WARFARE

PART 1 OF A TWO PART SERIES

ROMANS 6:6

FOCAL POINT: THE KEY TO SPIRITUAL WARFARE.

INTRODUCTION:

HAVE YOU WONDERED WHY SO LITTLE EVIDENCE IN A CHRISTIAN’S WALK?

PAUL SPOKE TO THIS ISSUE IN ROMANS 6. HE SPOKE TO THE ISSUE OF BELIEVERS DYING TO SIN AND MADE ALIVE IN CHRIST.

EXPOSITION OF TEXT:

ROMANS 6:6: KNOWING THIS, THAT OUR OLD MAN WAS CRUCIFIED WITH HIM. THAT THE BODY OF SIN MIGHT BE DONE AWAY WITH, THAT WE SHOULD NO LONGER BE SLAVES TO SIN.”

WORD STUDY ON OLD MAN: THE OLD MAN DESCRIBES THE ENTIRE MAN, THE INNER MAN BEFORE CONVERSION. THAT OLD MAN, THE ENTIRE MAN IS CONNECTED TO THE SIN NATURE OF ADAM (REF. GENESIS, CHAPTER 3).

READ GALATIANS 2: 20 THE OLD MAN WAS CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST. THE WORD DECLARES HE IS NOT THE SAME UNSAVED PERSON. THE WERE BORN FROM ABOVE OR BORN ANEW. CONVERSION SPEAKS OF TRANSFORMATION. 2 CORINTHIANS 5: 17 “THEREFORE, IF ANY MAN IS IN CHRIST HE IS A NEW CREATION; OLD THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY; BEHOLD, ALL THINGS HAVE BECOME NEW.” THESE ARE SCRIPTURAL, DOCTRINAL TRUTHS.

THAT SAID, THE ISSUE OF OUR FLESH IS PROBLEMATIC. AS A BORN AGAIN BELIEVER YOU STILL DEAL WITH FLESHLY ISSUES. ROMANS 7:18 “FOR I KNOW THAT NOTHING GOOD DWELLS IN ME, THAT IS, IN MY FLESH, FOR THE WILLING IS PRESENT IN ME, BUT THE DOING OF THE GOOD IS NOT.” UNBELIEVERS WALK IN THE FLESH. BELIEVERS HAVE A CHOICE. THEY MAY WALK IN THE SPIRIT OR IN THE FLESH. HOWEVER, THIS IS CHOICE!

READ ROMANS 12: 1-2 PAUL WAS SPEAKING TO THE CHURCH AT ROME, THE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY. PAUL SPOKE TO THE ISSUE OF THE FLESH!

READ 1 CORINTHIANS 6: 15-18

THE KEY TO SPIRITUAL WARFARE IS COMPLETE ABANDONMENT OF YOUR FLESH. YOU MUST DIE TO YOUR FLESH. THIS GOES TO THE HEART OF YOUR PRIDE AND YOUR SELF-LIFE.

APPLICATION: TRUE SPIRITUAL WARFARE DEPENDS ON DYING TO YOUR FLESH.
