Following Christ is lifestyle not a commitment.

You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ. But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of righteousness.  -Romans 8:9-10

Over the last 3 days, we have looked at Romans 8:5-10, which makes one point very clear. If we have the Spirit of God in is, we will live different. Choosing to follow Christ is not something you just decide or declare, it is a life change and a complete transformation of it. It is lifestyle not a commitment.

Sometime today look at Romans 8:1-17. Many focus on verse one and say there is no condemnation is Christ and that is true. But there is so much more. We will have different minds set on different things. Our mind is controlled by the Spirit, because the Spirit of God lives in us. And in verse 11-12 declare that Christ's resurrection power is what brings our life, that is dead to sin, alive to righteousness.

Pray that Holy Spirit will live though you in the same power of the resurrection. Pray that our minds will not be set on earthly things, but set on what the Spirit of God desires.
