In The Spirit
think about it.
What freedom or benefit does Romans 8:1 bring to your life today? How have you been set free (8:2-4)? What characterizes the mind set on the Spirit (8:5-9)? How does your life change because of Christ (8:10-11)? How have you seen that in your life? How do you know you're a child of God (8:14-16)? What do you gain by this (8:15-17)?
Romans 8 starts with this bold promise and declaration: "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." Then, Paul goes on and really explains the freedom that being a Christ-follower brings us by comparing and contrasting living in the flesh and living or walking in the Spirit.
So what did Acts 8:1-17 show you about living in the Spirit? What does being set free in Christ Jesus mean to you? Tami W.
