Romans 8:1-5 “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. 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.“ Let’s discuss Romans 8 a few verses at a time. For some they may never have read it and for others they may be very well versed in this chapter of scripture. Chime in! As we can see by verse one it says that there is no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus. The obvious question is “What about those not in Christ Jesus”?........ The walk a man has indicates the place he is going. Those that walk by the Spirit desire to please God. Those walking by the flesh have the desire to be a god of their own. The law was sent to reveal our sinful nature. Romans 7:7 For those who desire to please God realize that they are not able to. The fleshy nature continues to desire things that are evil. They come to the knowledge of sin that so easily ensnares them. It is here that they come to the cross. Death to self and a new life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Praise God for the victory found in our Lord Jesus Christ that we are no longer a slave to sin!
