Be Dominated By THE SPIRIT

We are to live by the dynamic power of the Holy Spirit!  Be dominated by THE SPIRIT.  There will be no excuses when we appear before Jesus in Heaven.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Romans chapter 8:

3   For God achieved what the law was unable to accomplish, because the law was limited by the weakness of human nature. Yet God sent us His Son in human form to identify with human weakness. Clothed with humanity, God’s Son gave His Body to be the sin-offering so that God could once and for all condemn the guilt and power of sin.

4 So now every righteous requirement of the law can be fulfilled through the Anointed One living His Life in us. And we are free to live, not according to our flesh, but by the dynamic power of the Holy Spirit!

We have been given this ability to walk by THE SPIRIT and so we should no longer subject ourselves to the flesh.  We are not to be ignorant of this power and authority.

5 Those who are motivated by the flesh only pursue what benefits themselves. But those who live by the impulses of the Holy Spirit are motivated to pursue Spiritual realities.

6 For the mind-set of the flesh is death, but the mind-set controlled by the Spirit finds life and peace.

7 In fact, the mind-set focused on the flesh fights God’s plan and refuses to submit to his direction, because it cannot!

8 For no matter how hard they try, God finds no pleasure with those who are controlled by the flesh.

You must be brutally honest and admit being self-centered if that is the case.  Once you make such an admission, you can change your mindset.  Assessing your fruit will provide you with a clue to where you are at.

9 But when the Spirit of Christ empowers your life, you are not dominated by the flesh but by the Spirit. And if you are not joined to the Spirit of the Anointed One, you are not of Him.

10 Now Christ lives His Life in you! And even though your body may be dead because of the effects of sin, His Life-giving Spirit imparts life to you because you are fully accepted by God.

11 Yes, God raised Jesus to life! And since God’s Spirit of Resurrection lives in you, He will also raise your dying body to life by the same Spirit that breathes life into you!

His Life supersedes all aspects of sickness, death, and destruction.  Let us renew our minds to this Truth.

Jesus prayed in John 17 that THEY share the same glory and unity with us, and to realize that FATHER has the same Love for us as HE has for Jesus:

20   “And I ask not only for these disciples, but also for all those who will one day believe in Me through their message.

21 I pray for them all to be joined together as one even as You and I, Father, are joined together as One. I pray for them to become one with us so that the world will recognize that you sent me.  (Unity)

22 For the very glory you have given to Me I have given them (Glory) so that they will be joined together as one and experience the same unity that we enjoy.

23 You live fully in Me and now I live fully in them so that they will experience perfect unity, and the world will be convinced that you have sent me, for they will see that you love each one of them with the same passionate love that you have for me.

24 “Father, I ask that You allow everyone that You have given to Me to be with Me where I am! Then they will see My full glory— the very splendor You have placed upon me because You have Loved Me even before the beginning of time.

We need to dwell on theses Words Jesus spoke concerning you and me.

In John 10:10-11, Jesus reminds us who is good and who is bad:

A thief has only one thing in mind—he wants to steal, slaughter, and destroy. But I have come to give you everything in abundance, more than you expect—life in its fullness until you overflow! I am the Good Shepherd who lays down My Life as a Sacrifice for the sheep.

Let us walk worthy of our calling and inheritance as we overcome the adversary in all areas of our life.
