There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. 5 Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.
The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God. You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness.
Saints of God, find someone who needs you and help them along the way, as we are moving forward together in the unity of Christ. We have no time to fight each other. A kingdom who fights against itself cannot stand. Our enemy is not each other. Our battle is fought in the realm of the spirit. We are commanded to LOVE each other, not to hate them. If we are told to love even our enemies, why fight the very ones God has saved? How much more love should we have for each other? Therefore, get your love to work and reach out to help someone who needs it, so we will be in unity . Christ is coming for a PERFECT church, so be perfect even as our father in heaven is perfect. How? He will take care of that, don’t worry. He is quite capable of knowing how to make us pure. Just trust Him, show love to His children and move forward in faith, He will do His part.
Jesus have WON the victory for us, but He need us to continue even if we face death, please do not deny Him. Even if you die, you still win, because In God you will live. Now is not the time to sit around and judge one another. No one has made us a judge over each other. We need each other to stay united so nothing will cause us to fall. It matters not what denomination you support, as long as you belong to Jesus Christ, there is NO CONDEMNATION in those who are in Christ Jesus. Not even the angels in heaven can condemn us. God will not, as He is the one who gave us His son, so saints stand strong, and don’t allow anyone to condemn you.
Let them be free to worship God, don’t be a burden to them, be helpful, they have it tough enough.
There were people doing the same thing long ago, as they claimed they belong to Paul, and some say they belong to Apollos. Is Jesus divided? No He is not, so let us live here as an example of what is to come soon. If we cannot be trusted with this temporary flesh body, how on earth are we to be trusted with a permanent one.? Come along, now people be reasonable. Hear what Paul continue to warns us about and so we can come to our senses. God be with us all, as we re-consider our lifestyle, and adjust it to please Him. Find common grounds with each other, and stop arguing with each other. We have enough problems on the outside, let’s not create more on the inside. Strengthen the folks so, they, despite their burdens, the love we show them , will give them hope to carry on.
Now I say this, that each of you says, “I am of Paul,” or “I am of Apollos,” or “I am of Cephas,” or “I am of Christ.” Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul? 14 I thank God that I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius, lest anyone should say that I had baptized in my name (1 Corinthians 1:12-15).
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:37).
