Love God…Hate Sin

Posted: June 13, 2011 in Uncategorized

Romans chapter 8 is arguably one of the greatest sections of scripture in the entire Bible. It is full of incredible things that are true of people who are united to Christ by faith.

there’s no condemnation -verse 1

the power of sin and death has been broken -verse 2

through Jesus, the requirements of the law have been fulfilled in us. -verse 3

Just to name a few.

In Christ, believers are seen as perfectly righteous by God the Father. Plus the Holy Spirit comes to live in us. Both Christ and the Holy Spirit work in us to ensure and testify to the fact that we have victory over both sin and death.

Believers are no longer slaves to sin…but rather we are slaves to righteousness. We love God and hate sin…and for that reason..we fight hard against sin. Make it a point to put sin to death by the Spirit’s power.

” You, however, are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit. If in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead becaus of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousnes. If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you. So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body you will live.”

Romans 8:9-13
