CHOICES we make in THE MIND, determine whether we live under THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH, or we live under THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS.
THE GOAL is to live in THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS! Romans 8:2 “The law of the Spirit of LIFE in Christ Jesus.”
Hebrews 8:10 (Amplified version) For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord. I will imprint My laws upon their minds, even upon their innermost thoughts and understanding, and engrave them upon their hearts, and I will be their God and they shall be My people.
NOTE 3 IMPORTANT POINTS:
God’s law no longer comes to us on stone tablets, but is written in our hearts.
Romans 7:6 ‘So now we serve, not under obedience to the old code of written regulations, but under obedience to the promptings of the Spirit in newness of LIFE.’
This teaches us that we are to be led by the inner promptings of the Spirit. Only the Holy Spirit knows the mind of God concerning our lives and circumstances.
He (The Holy Spirit) will reveal God’s will for us and lead us into His fullness as we follow His promptings.
To PROMPT MEANS TO REMIND US OR GIVE US A CUE. It does not indicate force or control or manipulation.
God sets before each of us LIFE and DEATH and encourages us to choose LIFE, so that we and our descendants may have lives He has carefully planned for us.
Romans 6:12-14 Let not SIN therefore rule as king in your mortal bodies, to make you yield to their cravings… Do not continue offering or yielding your bodily members and faculties to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but offer and yield yourselves to God, as though you have been raised from the dead to perpetual LIFE and your bodily members to God, presenting them as instruments of righteousness. For SIN shall not have dominion over you, since you are not under the Law, but under Grace.
Point 3 SOW TO THE SPIRIT.
Galatians 6:8 For he who sows to his own flesh, will from the flesh reap corruption. Decay and ruin. BUT he who sows to the Spirit, will from the Spirit reap life – life eternal.
Galatians 6:7 Don’t be deceived and misled. God will not allow Himself to be mocked, for whatever a man sows, that and that only is what he will reap.
Ephesians 5:18 ‘Keep on being filled with the Holy Spirit!’
Listen to and obey His voice (often gentle nudging)
Choose the LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS and walk away from THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.
Speak life, choose life and reject sin and death and do not entertain it!
