I will be posting a few verses and sharing thoughts. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. (Romans 8:3-5 KJV) I really like this verse. When I read it I am seeing God is there and wants us to follow after him in his spirit and not worldly things that could lead us astray. You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life 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 because of his Spirit who lives in you. (Romans 8:9-11 NIV) I don't completely think I am getting the full meaning of it but when I read it I hear, because we sin and are of flesh we will die, but because we have the same spirit that raised Jesus, we will live. Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live. (Romans 8:12, 13 NIV) Again...same thing I'm getting out of this. What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? (Romans 8:31, 32 NIV) God will live forever and back us up! For this I raise my arms in worship and pray praise to him. This is like the song with these lyrics: And if Our God is for us, then who could ever stop us. And if our God is with us, then what can stand against? For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38, 39 NIV) This Is a powerful preach it moment I get. When I read this verse, I got chills... (And there multiplying, and I'm loosing control.) heh..couldn't help it... Yes, teens feel free to comment as well as staff as I know this is just a quick little study but I think we need to see this as teens and get it.
