Romans 8:1-39
Life In The Spirit

  • There is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.
  • The power of the life-giving Spirit has freed us through Jesus from the power of sin which leads to death.
  • God destroyed sin's control over us by giving us His Don as a sacrifice for our sins.
  • Those who are dominated by sinful mature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit.
  • We have no obligation whatsoever to do what our sinful nature urges us to do. Because if, through the power of the Holy Spirit we turn from sin and evil deeds, we live.
  • Those who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.
  • We as Christians, although we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, groan to be released from pain and suffering. We, too, wait anxiously for that day when God will give us our full rights as His children, including the new bodies He has promised us.
  • The Holy Spirit helps us in our distress.
  • We know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to His purpose for them.
  • If God is for us, who can ever be against us?
  • Can anything ever separate us from Christ's love? No, despite all things, overwhelming victory is ours thought Christ, who loved us.
Hebrews 2:1-3 - v1 so we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard, or we may drift away from it. v2 The message God delivered through angels has always proved true, and the people were punished for every violation of the law and every act of disobedience. v3 What makes us think that we can escape if we are indifferent to this great salvation that was announced by the Lord Jesus Himself? If was passed on to us by those who heard Him speak.
Subject: Drifting Away From God
  • Drop an anchor so that you don't drift away.
  • A boat still sways with the current.
  • To drift is to do so slowly.
  • How do we drift from God? (1) When we stop studying the Word. (2) When we don't pray.
  • Preventing drifting: (1) Be aware of drifting by keeping your mind on Jesus; (2) So be careful how you live, not as fools but as those who are wise. Make the most of every opportunity for doing good in these evil days. Ephesians 5:15-16; (3) Be deliberate with God.
  • Who drifted in the Bible?  Paul drifted; the Israelites drifted; the Prodigal son drifted; Peter drifted; David drifted.
  • In times like these be very sure your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock (Jesus)!
