Join us for our new sermon series, The Holy Spirit and You!
SUNDAY WORSHIP: SUNDAY, May 29, 2016 ~ 9 AM & 11 AM:
We continue our series the “Holy Spirit and You”, with a very practical application of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer. Romans 8 has been called the “chapter of the Holy Spirit.” It contains many powerful statements about the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer. In Romans 8:6-15, it focuses on the struggle between the broken human nature, and the work of the Holy Spirit. The broken human nature leads to death, and the Holy Spirit to life and peace. Yet, this is not without struggle, and even though we know that in Jesus Christ the Christian has won the war, we will also lose many battles along the way as we seek to apply this scripture to our lives. In the sermon “New Thinking”, we will see how Romans 8:6-15 gives us some great encouragement for living in the work of the Holy Spirit, rather than continuing to practice the worst of our human nature. As you prepare for Memorial Day and the grand sacrifice that many have paid for our freedom, reflect on Romans 8:6-15, and consider how you are fighting the “good fight” of faith. Romans 8:6-15: The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God's law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God. You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation-- but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live. For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, "Abba, Father." (NIV)
