Gene Cunningham - October 8, 2009
The result of the walking in the Spirit is that we fulfill the righteous requirements of the Law (Rom 8:4, Gal 5:16). Believers who live according to the flesh because they set their minds on the flesh (Rom 8:5-7). It's our decision to walk according to the Spirit or the flesh, depending upon what we set our minds. The quickness of walking in the Spirit then the flesh is Peter at Cesarea Phillipi (Mat 16:13-23). 7 "ifs" setup a tight argument (Rom 8:9-17) As soon as we set our minds on the things of the Spirit we'll walk in newness of life. However, death starts immediately when we sin. Jesus' spiritual life is the Holy Spirit. The work of the Spirit sets up free from the practice of sin and death (Rom 8:12-17). Four secrets of evangelism: 1) obligation; 2) impartiality; 3) preparation; 4) not ashamed. The Spirit of God will not do what you don't choose to do.
