The Letter to the Romans Chapter 8 v- 13 thru 14
13 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. 14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.
Living according to the flesh typically refers to living a life driven by worldly desires, indulging in sinful behaviors, and prioritizing personal gratification. This often leads to negative consequences such as a hardened heart, spiritual emptiness, broken bonds, and a sense of dissatisfaction or lack of fulfillment. It can also result in separation from God and a feeling of being distant from His purpose for your life. Additionally, the Bible warns that those who live according to the flesh may not inherit the Kingdom of God (Galatians 5:19-21). “Now the works of the flesh are obvious: immorality, impurity, licentiousness, idolatry, sorcery, hatreds, rivalry, jealousy, outbursts of fury, acts of selfishness, dissensions, factions, occasions of envy, drinking bouts, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the Kingdom of God.”
On the other hand, living in Christ means aligning your life with His teachings, following His example, and seeking to live a life characterized by love, compassion, and obedience to God's Will. It involves surrendering your own desires to God and allowing His Spirit to guide and transform you from the inside out. Living in Christ brings numerous blessings, including a deepening relationship with God, a sense of peace and joy, spiritual growth, a transformed character, and the hope of Eternal Life with Him. It also brings a purposeful and meaningful life, rooted in the love and grace of God our Father. Live as Jesus reminds us in John 6:51; “I am the Living Bread that came down from Heaven; whoever eats this Bread will live forever; and the Bread that I will give is My flesh for the life of the world.” Live in the flesh and you will die. Live in Him forever. Amen.
Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. The Lord’s Prayer. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen Son in Law Mark Stern; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Our prayers for a friend and his wife for a baby to be born has been answered; she is 24 weeks pregnant with a little boy. Praise God thank You Jesus. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.
