As a follower of Jesus, you are transformed into a NEW person
by the POWER of the Holy Spirit!
Romans 8:1-28 By the POWER of the Holy Spirit, YOU are…
• Secure! (vs. 1) (Justification)
• Free from the power of sin! (vs. 2-4)
• Set apart! (vs. 5-8) Flesh vs. Holy Spirit (Sanctification)
He’s always there; indwells us; partners with us; seals us; consecrates us; talks to us; shows us what we need to change; empowers us; gives us abilities to do things we need to do; regenerates us; leads us; guides us; shows us TRUTH; teaches us; counsels us; helps us; fills us; controls us; correct us; convicts us; quickens us; changes us and gives us gifts to help each other and put the Body of Christ together!
• Made right with God in Christ! (vs. 9-11) (Trinity)
• Given the very LIFE of God! (vs. 11-13)
• Chosen as His child! (vs. 14-17)
Mark 14:36 “Abba, Father”
• Enduring your fallen world with a confident hope! (v. 18-25) (Glorification)
• Strengthened in your weaknesses! (vs. 26-28)
Ephesians 3:16-17,20, 6:18
By faith, are you actively choosing to SURRENDER your will to being led by the POWER of the Holy Spirit?
Review: NEW! 1. UGLY: Family, Blessed, JESUS! 2. NEW PERSON: Transformed despite Satan’s & Society’s forces, 3&4. NEW PATTERN: Answers WHY? Born into sin! Today…
CORE TRUTH: As a follower of Jesus, you are transformed into a NEW person by the POWER of the Holy Spirit!
Romans 8:1-28 By the POWER of the Holy Spirit, THE VERY SPIRIT OF GOD, YOU are…
(1) Secure! (Justification) Security! Sealed! Protected! Assurance! NOTHING can separate! Guarantee! Preserved! Approved! Owned! “NOT GUILTY!” BRANDED LIKE COW! Dispute over ownership? BRAND settles it!
How? READ Ephesians 1:13-14 Nothing can do to EARN it and nothing can do to LOSE it! IF you’ve heard GOSPEL & believe, your SALVATION guaranteed! Once BORN AGAIN…CANNOT die again! SALVATION=done by God, thru sacrifice of JC, by convicting & transforming of HS!
(2-4) Free from the power of sin! Sinful nature still there! Flesh NOT go away! Old Car in garage!
(5-8) Set apart! BATTLE!!! Diabolically opposing…Flesh vs. Holy Spirit (Sanctification) Old Fleshly Nature vs. New Heart!
NOT about occasional failures, but LIVING in the flesh! Allowing FLESH to guide!
“A person who doesn’t face this inner struggles between new heart and old flesh might not have a NEW heart!” They give in every time!
