Living according to the Spirit

There are two ways of living: In the Spirit or in the flesh, in what way are you living? If we are in Christ, the way we are supposed to live is in the Spirit, so I want you to reflect on this through the Word of God.

The apostle Paul wrote to the Romans:

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.

10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.

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 8:9-11

The Bible tells us repeatedly about this of living in the Spirit, and it is that this is the sign that we really are in Christ. When it comes to living in the Spirit, it is not doing multiple miracles or floating in the air, but rather a life that pleases God in all that He does.

Christ died for us on a cross, and if that Christ who died on the cross dwells in us, then we have full life, but we cannot say that Christ dwells in us and continue living by the standards of this world, because it would be totally contradictory.

So let us live according to the Word of God, for this is life and life in abundance.
