Heirs

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.  For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh,  in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.  For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.  For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
 You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.  But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness.  If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.

Heirs with Christ

 So then, brothers,5 we are debtors, cnot to the flesh, to live according to the flesh.  For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you dput to death the deeds of the body, you will live.  For all who are eled by the Spirit of God are fsons6 of God.  For gyou did not receive hthe spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of iadoption as sons, by whom we cry, j“Abba! Father!”  kThe Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,  and if children, thenlheirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, mprovided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.

The renewal of mind, spirit, and body. Only comes through Christ! Only through his redemptive powers, are we saved. Only by his grace do we have faith that we are saved.


God is a God of healing and a God of peace! He is also a God of justice, and demands, that sinners be justified. He provided a way out for us Sinners through is Son Jesus Christ! So we can live Godly, and full lives, and then with him in Heaven after! 

Praise God for his unfailing Love for his creatures on Earth!
