We need a deep shout of truth into the deepest part of our spirits. We need to understand the control we live under. It’s not the flesh any longer. Romans 8 has Paul demonstrating there are two allegiances, but in v. 9 delivers such a powerful shout of truth that needs to reverberate into the deepest parts of our spirits.
“Yes, this is what it is like to be under the control of the flesh… But. Not. You.”
May we hear this deep word in our spirits today!
But you are not in the flesh; you are in the Spirit, since 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, though the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness.If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also through his Spirit that dwells in you. (Rom. 8:9-11)
