Rom 8:13-14

2-3-21

Rom 8:13-14 (net) …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. For all who are led by the Spirit of God are the sons of God.

There are two fundamentally opposed ways that we can live and be led (Gal 5:17).
We can live and be led according to the flesh, or we can live and be led according to the Spirit.
If by the flesh then we will set our minds on the things of the flesh (Romans 8:5). We will be led by the wants and desires of our sinful spiritual state and we will live in hostility to God and to His laws (Romans 8:7). Following this way leads to death (“Bible League International”, 2-1-21).
The choice is simple: choose to live for God or choose to live for yourself (Joshua 24:15, Deut 11:26-28, Micah 7:7, 2 John 3:9-10).
In choosing to live by the spirit you are choosing to surrender yourself completely to to the will and guidance of God through the Holy Spirit (John 16:13, Psalm 18:44, Phil 2:13). 🤔


God bless you today 🤗
