Newness of Life in the Spirit

HAPPY NEW LIFE in the SPIRIT!

God’s life is new to those who are born again. Much to learn about living. Life is in the Spirit; in case you’re looking to live that abundant life Jesus mentioned. We are learning to walk in the newness if life. “Therefore, we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too may walk in newness of life.” (Romans 6:4 NASB)

“But now we have been released from the Law, having died to that by which we were bound, so that we serve in newness of the Spirit and not in oldness of the letter.” (Romans 7:6 NASB)

SO, NOW WE ARE DIFFERENT.

“For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who are in accord with the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are in accord with the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.” (Romans 8:3-5 NASB)

CALLED to LIVE ACCORDING to the SPIRIT

“You are My witnesses,” declares the Lord,
“And My servant whom I have chosen,
So that you may know and believe Me
And understand that I am He.
Before Me there was no God formed,
And there will be none after Me.
I, only I, am the Lord,
And there is no savior besides Me.
It is I who have declared and saved and proclaimed,
And there was no strange god among you.
So, you are My witnesses,” declares the Lord,
“And I am God.
Even from eternity I am He,
And there is no one who can rescue from My hand.
I act, and who can reverse it?”
(Isaiah 43:10-13 NASB)

These verses belong to an end time prophecy concerning Israel. (Good read) Gentiles are now God’s witnesses as we serve Him in the Spirit. There is no savior beside Jesus. (John 1:1-5) Serve Him. That’s a worthy undertaking in this New Year.
