Walking in the Spirit

Bishop O.W. Prince Bible Commentary: Walking In the Spirit.

“For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out…So I find it to be a la...
w that when I want to do right, evil lies close at hand…waging war…and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?” (Rm. 7:18-25)

Scriptural Answer:
God through Jesus Christ our Lord!

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. (For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. –Gal 3:27) For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do – Sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in [for] us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit (Holy Spirit).

…For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.

If in deed we’ve been BORN AGAIN, put on the mind of Christ…

Since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God. For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries. Live according to God in the spirit. Glorify God in Your flesh.

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you...therefore, glorify God in your body. Amen!
