Man's Flesh and God's SPIRIT

 

Romans 8:1 

King James Version

8 There is therefore now no condemnation 

to them which are in Christ Jesus, 

who walk not after the flesh, 

but after the Spirit.


If the Spirit of God dwells in us, we are in the Spirit.

Romans 8:9 (KJV)

9 But ye are not in the flesh, 

but in the Spirit, 

if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you

Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, 

he is none of his.


How does our flesh differ from God's Spirit?

What can the Holy Spirit of God do for us, in our battle against the sins of the flesh?

Here are marked differences, amazingly just from one chapter in Scripture:

Romans 8:2 (KJV)

2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus 

hath made me free from the law of sin and death.


Romans 8:3 (KJV)

3 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:


Romans 8:5 (KJV)

5 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.


Romans 8:6 (KJV)

6 For to be carnally minded is death; 

but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.


Romans 8:10 (KJV)

10 And if Christ be in you, 

the body is dead because of sin; 

but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.


Romans 8:11 (KJV)

11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead 

dwell in you, 

he that raised up Christ from the dead 

shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit 

that dwelleth in you.


Romans 8:13 (KJV)

13 For if ye live after the flesh, 

ye shall die: 

but if ye through the Spirit do mortify 

the deeds of the body, 

ye shall live.


Romans 8:15 (KJV)

15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; 

but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, 

whereby we cry, 

Abba, Father.


Romans 8:18 (KJV)

18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time 

are not worthy to be compared with the glory 

which shall be revealed in us.


Romans 8:21 (KJV)

21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered 

from the bondage of corruption 

into the glorious liberty of the children of God.


Romans 8:26 (KJV)

26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: 

for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: 

but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us 

with groanings which cannot be uttered.
