2011 March Monthly Bible Study--A Walk In The Spirit

2011 March’s Lesson—A Walk in the Spirit

Romans 8:5-14
Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace; the sinful mind is hostile to God. It does not submit to God's law, nor can it do so. Those controlled by the sinful nature cannot please God. You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ. But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive 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 through his Spirit, who lives in you. Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation--but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it. For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live, because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.


Listen to Romans Chapter 8 KJV

Old nature- New nature, phrases every Christian is familiar with; Have you ever felt like you are at war with yourself, being pulled between what’s right and what’s wrong? Maybe you have done something that you wish you would not have and you beat yourself up over it. You may have even sinned, asked for forgiveness, but the same sin keeps arising in your life. I have been there myself; sometimes it can cause confusion, frustration and even doubt. This month as you study Romans 8:5-14 be encouraged that you are growing. The things mentioned above are a sign that God is working in you. The flesh wars against the Spirit; therefore the fact that you are convicted enough to feel something is off shows that God is in you and his Holy Spirit is helping you work through these things. This conflict is the best assurance we are in Christ. Try to walk in the Spirit--the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace.

Reminder of March's Memory Verse
Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Romans 12:11 NIV

Listen to Romans Chapeter 12 KJV

Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; Romans 12:11 KJV
