“LIFE TO YOUR MORTAL BODIES” [Rom 8:1-11]

“And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit, who lives in you.” vs11

The Spirit guarantees that we shall live a new life! God hasn’t left us on our own, but He sent help from Zion, even the rod of His Spirit. The same Mighty Power that raised Christ from the dead now works in us. No longer are we slaves because Jesus is resurrected, the Spirit is given, and God has purposed our deliverance. He would never leave us in bondage to corruption.

First, the Lord Jesus is the reason that we are delivered [vs1-4]. “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made us free from the law of sin and death. For of the Law being powerless in that it was weak through the flesh, God, having sent His Son in likeness of sin of flesh and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh, 4so that the righteousness of the Law should be fulfilled in us not walking according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.” He bore our sins upon the cross, so that God is justified in giving grace to us. The chasm of separation has been answered by God’s wrath poured on Him. Once He took our penalty, however, God is now free to give us grace that includes deliverance.

We are no longer bound because the Spirit is the promise of new life. He has not left us to our enemies but given sufficient power to overcome. He subdues the flesh.

Secondly, this life comes as our eyes are fixed on Christ [vs5-7]. “For those being according to flesh mind the things of the flesh; but those according to Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For the mind of the flesh is death; but the mind of the Spirit, life and peace.” We cannot win by unbelief: We cannot do good! It must be faith, and forgiveness leads to blessing.

Take hold of the atonement, and God blessing you. In the teeth of your sins, know that you are not condemned, risen to newness of life, and the Spirit will be given repeatedly. Do not fight in the strength of man: sin and Satan are too strong. In God’s strength, we win.

Thirdly, the victory is guaranteed [vs9-11]! “But if Christ is in you, the body is indeed dead on account of sin, but the Spirit is life on account of righteousness. And if the Spirit of the One having raised up Jesus out from the dead dwells in you, the One having raised up Christ Jesus out from the dead also will give life to your mortal bodies, on account of His Spirit dwelling in you." We may have to look to Him over and over, and sin may look bigger and bigger, but God is too faithful to lie, too powerful to fail, and too good to abandon us. He cannot leave us, and He’s given us the highest proof, which is Christ’s resurrection. Just as SURELY as He is victorious, we shall we also. Just as the blood availed for Him, it will for us also. Just as the Spirit is strong enough to raise Christ, our sins will be no match.

→ We have the greatest gospel in the world. Rejoice, dear children, and take hold of your inheritance. God has put us in a battle of believing, moment by moment.
