Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their father. Matthew 13:43
The flesh and the Spirit at odds
December 2, 2011Posted by on
The following sermon was preached by Rev. John Keddie at the Wednesday Evening prayer meeting in Carbost on 30th November, 2011.
The text is Romans 8:5-11: “For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 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. And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 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.”
“But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit”
