Holy Spirit #18 "Life in the Spirit 3"

Sunday, November 11, 2018

Pastor Tim continues our series on the Holy Spirit by continuing to explore the depths of Romans 8, honing in on verse 13:

13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.

In this message, Pastor Tim borrows from Eugene Peterson, describing sin as a "relational disorder" and goes further in explaining how it is a failure of desire. He then explains how through the Holy Spirit we can put our sin to death (historically known as mortification of the body) and gives four aspects of this to put into practice.

  1.  We need to put explicit sin to death
  2. We need to put to death morally neutral behaviors that take us away from God
  3. We need to be aware of when we simply "mow over" our sin.
  4. We need to be aware of when we cover up.
