Summary: The effect of the comforter on Christians!
IS YOUR SPIRIT ALIVE?
ROMANS CHAPTER 8:1-18
The Church today is One Body of Believers
Which is the Body of Christ
We have one spirit! –Which is the Holy Spirit
We have one hope!!! Which is Salvation
We have one Lord! – Which is Jesus Christ
We have one Faith! – Which is Christianity
And I ain’t talking about denomination either!!
I don’t believe in preaching denomination!!
We have one baptism! – Which we are buried
With Christ – The old Man is Dead and We are a
We have one God! – Which is the Father of us All
Above all - through all - and In us All!!
GALATIANS 5:16 SAYS
This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
If you are walking in the spirit then you are living
In the spirit.
Many manuscripts take out – who walk not after
The flesh, But after the Spirit!!!!
Christians you are to be living continuously
in the spirit!!!
We have to believe that the spirit is within us
And Been sent to us by God!!! And it has been!!!
We have to submit our desires to those of the spirit!!
The bible says:
Being made free from sin you became servants of
When you were a servant of sin you were
Free from righteousness!!!!!
The Bible says:
For the wages of sin is death
But the Gift of God is Eternal Life
Through Jesus Christ our Lord!!!!!
Children we don’t have just one function
We are just a little spoke in the great big wheel!!
Vs. 9 in our reading says: if any man have not
the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His!!!
If you are lacking in the spirit then I have a HOT NEWS FLASH FOR YOU you ain’t saved!!!!
The holy spirit abides in all of us that are saved!!!
ACTS 13:39 SAYS:
And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses!
The Law has been called weak, but, there’s nothing wrong with the law - but the presence of sin
renders believers powerless to follow the
demands of the law!!
I have met so many people today who wonder if their Faith Is real or not!!!
People sometimes struggle to believe that they could
truly be a child of God!
If you try and try to keep the Christian faith and
Continue to fail then you are just living life very
Similar to the apostle Paul, And our only
hope is if God will give us a little help In
overcoming our weaknesses!! Everyone has
Moments of weakness in their lives!!!
We have to realize that there is no way that we
Can make this journey alone!!!
Only Jesus can help us, and all we gotta do is ask!
GALATIANS 3:13 SAYS:
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us; for it is written
Cursed is everyone that hangeth on a tree!!
Have you ever asked yourself if You’re good
Enough for God??
If you have then you asked yourself the wrong question. Your question should be,
Am I in Jesus Christ?
Am I one of his followers?
Is his Holy Spirit In Me?
If we are in Jesus then we are free from the law
Of Sin and Death!!!!!
Now that should be something to get excited about!!
I think that too many times people see themselves as failures because of their lack of Godliness or the lack of spirituality. They feel like Low Life’s!!
They feel like there’s nothing they can do to live up to the standard they have in their minds of being a
This is The ole devil himself talking to you!!!
They too often compare themselves to everyone else.
You can’t just always be all tore up thinking that
You ain’t accepted Or try to compare yourselves
To your Neighbor, or your Boss, or your Pastor!
Be positive. Be Proud.
Always be ready to say Something good for God!!!!
Verse one in our reading tells us that there is no
Condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus.
God is the one with all wisdom, He knows what we need to make ourselves acceptable to Him!
God knows that We could never meet his standards
On our own!! We have to have his help!!!!
God already knew that He had to send Jesus to
Die on the cross in order to satisfy the
Requirements of the Law and silence the demands.
So God sent his only Son Jesus Christ in Human form,
Then Jesus died for us on the cross And after he ascended back to Heaven He left us the comforter (The Holy Ghost)!!!!!
