"In the Spirit"
“In the Spirit”
Some powerful truths related to the Spirit and the flesh.
We are walking through them step by step.
Meditate upon them.
Walk in them.
It will change your life.
However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him.
Note the “however”.
Paul had just said…
For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace,
because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so,
and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
You are not “in the flesh”…
But, you are “in the Spirit”…
the Spirit of God dwells in you.
If you are truly saved.
If you are truly Spirit filled.
If you do not have the Spirit of God, then you are not saved.
You do not belong to Him.
You may belong to an organization, e.g. a “church”, but you are not of the Kingdom Body of Christ.
If you do not belong to Him, you live in the flesh
If you do belong to Him, you can live in the Spirit and reject the flesh.
You have the Spirit.
Choose the Spirit.
Die to the flesh.
The flesh cannot please God.
