The Holy Ghost week1 | Sermon Notes

Sorry folks, this week’s notes are not as thorough as usual.  There was a lot more in the sermon than represented here. Listen to the podcast for more info. They are posted Tuesdays on iTunes “PromiseLand” or go to our direct podcast site.


Gospel Message/Flesh and Spirit Living

Romans 8:3 …So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins. 4 He did this so that the just requirement of the law would be fully satisfied for us, who no longer follow our sinful nature but instead follow the Spirit.

Romans 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace… 8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

In this series, we want to teach and preach about what happens when your life is FILLED with the Spirit and you are LED by the Spirit.

Here is a divine dichotomy: You can live in the Flesh or the Spirit.  A brutal way to live is to try and live in BOTH the flesh and the Spirit.  Remember last week we discussed that it is completely acceptable to be led by the Spirit and also work hard and plan things out.  Working and planning things is not ‘living in the flesh’.

The difference in living in the flesh and living in the Spirit can be better described as living for the flesh or living for the Spirit.
