HOW TO WALK IN GRACE

Rom 8:5 [NET]
For those who live according to the flesh have their outlook shaped by the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit have their outlook shaped by the things of the Spirit.

Each time Chinyere played in the mud, she would later have a painful foot infection called athlete’s foot.

Her mother now instructed her to stop playing in the mud, but Chinyere would disobey her mother and still play in the mud. When her mother finds out, Chinyere would be severely punished for her disobedience. But this did not remove the fact that Chinyere would face the reality of athlete’s foot much later.

Before the law existed, sin was in the world. And sin already had its attendant eternal consequences, because sin is actually a spiritual venom that produces [spiritual] death (see Rom 6:23).

You see, the law tried to save man and cause him to walk in righteousness, but it failed because man had the weakness of his flesh hindering him from obeying the law in truth. The law now only succeeded in bringing the consciousness of sin, and bringing curses for disobedience.

(Rom 8:3-4-NET) God achieved what the law could not do… By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and concerning sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, so that the righteous requirement of the law may be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

Grace empowers you from within to walk in God’s righteousness. This is what the law sought to produce, but couldn’t.

The way Christians walk in God’s grace is by walking in the spirit. The spirit is where the grace of God is administered from (see Philemon 1:25, Gal 6:18, Phil 4:23).

What does it mean to walk in the spirit? Our main Bible text reveals one trait of those walking in the spirit.

Go into today walking in the spirit by readjusting your outlook and priorities to that of God’s kingdom.

Thank the Lord for His grace.
