Bible Verses That Admonishes & Inspire

Life in the Spirit

Romans 8:1-10

Walking and Living in the Spirit galatians5_25text

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 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.By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin,[c] he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. Forthose 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. For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot.Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you [if in fact you are truely saved]. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. 10 But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

___________________________________________________________

Jeremiah 5:7-8

” How shall I pardon you for this?
Your children have forsaken Me
And sworn by those that are not gods.
When I had fed them to the full,
Then they committed adultery
And assembled themselves by troops in the harlots” houses.
They were like well-fed lusty stallions;
Every one neighed after his neighbor’s wife.

***

Prophet after prophet makes similar statements.  Israel has trouble being faithful to anything: God, spouse, country, employer and contracts!  Our natural minds runs like quicksilver from here to there–always running to get the best for the selves, willing to bend in any direction to gain advantage and have our pleasure.  We work very hard at this.

” How shall I pardon you for this?”

***

For if you go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins. (Hebrews 10:26)

***

Therefore, “Let the one who does wrong, still do wrong; and the one who is filthy, still be filthy; and let the one who is righteous, still practice righteousness; and the one who is holy, still keep himself holy.” (Revelations 22:11)

***

Ultimately, who you are will be revealed at the judgment!

Psalm 1:1-3

1 Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinnersor sit in the seat of mockers. 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. 3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.

“If it is too hard it may not be from God.”

-Bishop O.W. Prince-

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30 NIV)

Today’s Bible Verse

Would it surprise you to know that as late as the writing of the Book of Revelation (around the year 95 A.D.), the New Testament Church (both Jewish and Gentile congregations) were observing the seventh day Sabbath?  We know that Jesus Christ was a Sabbath keeper based upon the writings of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.  He Is Lord of the Sabbath.  Yet some believe that Jesus Did away with the Sabbath.

This simply just isn’t true.

If changing the Sabbath to Sunday was on Jesus’ agenda, He would have certainly prepared the disciples for such a change.  Such a drastic alteration of one of the Ten Commandments would have taken a lot of explaining on the part of Jesus.  Isn’t it reasonable to conclude that if Christ changed the Sabbath from Saturday– the seventh day of the week, to Sunday–the first day of the week, that He would have had many discussions with his disciples concerning such a major change?

But the Bible is totally silent on this matter.  Why?  Because this change simply never took place.  Had Christ made the announcement that the Sabbath was now to be kept on Sunday, the Jewish community would have viciously attacked him; and we would have an ample number of scriptures to turn to that would show us this change took place under Christ’s direction.  Matthew, Mark, Luke and John would have recorded the disciples’ reactions to this alteration to the law of God.  The silence of the scriptures on this matter is overwhelming— Christ did not change the Sabbath day to Sunday.

I’ve heard too many preachers and evangelists teach about positioning one’s self to receive a blessing from God or preach an emotionally charged sermon about accessing the blessing.  And I’ve seen too many pastors selling their seminars and phony gospels about working one’s faith in order to operate in the biblical principles of prosperity.  But hardly any of them tell their eager listeners that they must first repent of sin, be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ and receive the Holy Spirit of God before they are eligible to access or approach the things of God. (See the lesson on the Uzzah Syndrome)

Proverbs 14:12 says, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.”

There is only One way to salvation-God’s way.
