Life In The Spirit

Romans 7:5 (KJV)  For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.
Romans 7:5 (KJV)  For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.


Everyone born into this world was born with his reality centered in his flesh and mind. He would act according to the impulses of his flesh which controls his mind. When you see a baby crying,  it is because of an inconvenient fleshly impulse.
As we grow older,  we begin to learn the laws of life and learn to be disciplined and act according to what we know in our minds to be good or evil. Animals are ruled by their flesh,  but humans are ruled by their minds,  guided by the knowledge of good and evil. But the truth is that a man ruled by his mind is still in the flesh because the flesh controls the unrenewed mind.

Now, when a person is born again, he is to be brought out of all that. He is no more to be in the flesh and ruled by its impulses,  but he is to be in the spirit and ruled by the Holy Spirit who tabernacles it because all human spirits were made in the image of God. Note that those who are not born again are spiritually dead.

To be in the flesh means to live a life ruled by fleshly impulses and one whose reality is centered in his body. But to be in the Spirit means to live a life ruled by the will and desire of the Spirit and be a person whose reality is in heaven.

God made man in His image as eternal beings that would rule and reign with Him for all eternity. This short earth's adventure is a training ground to select overcomers who would be counted worthy to reign with Him. The biggest enemy we would overcome is the flesh of sin & death.

Go into today thanking God for the privilege to become an overcomer.

Prayer: Ask for the grace to live above the control of the flesh and sin and live a life that is pleasing to God at all times.
-Abraham Damilola Arigi
