Taste and See Challenge Day 25 Romans 8:1-17, Galatians 5:13-26

Because Jesus condemned sin We are Free From Condemned
  • No condemnation of those in Christ 

  • The law of the Spirit sets us free from the law of death 

  • The flesh weakened the law 

  • Jesus came in the flesh to be a sin offering to fully meet the righteous requirement 

  • For those who do not live according to the flesh but to the Spirit 


Are you free?

The Fleshy vs Spiritual Mindset
  • Those who live according to the flesh have the mindset of what the flesh desires

  • Those who live according to the Spirit have their mindset on what the Spirit desires 

  • The mind governed by flesh = death 

  • The mind governed by spirit =life and peace

  • The mind governed by flesh is hostile to God 

It does not submit to God’s law nor can it 

If your mindset is wrong then your feet are going to go in the wrong direction Which mindset do you have?

Like watching TV or social media you can be on two channels or two apps simultaneously. You have to choose 

The Spirit vs Fleshy Realm
  • Those who are in the realm of the flesh can not please God 

  • If the spirit of god is in you then you are in the realm of the Spirit 

  • If you don’t have the spirit of God then you don't belong to Christ 

  • If Christ is in you, even tho your body is subject to death you will have life and righteousness because of the spirit 

  • If the Spirit who raised Christ lives in you he will give life to your mortal bodies 

Which realm are you operating in?

Life According to the Flesh
  • We have an obligation not to live according to the flesh 

  • If you do, you will de

  • If by the spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body you will live 


The Spirit identifies God’s Children
  • Those who the Spirit leads are God’s children 

  • The Spirit doesn't make you a slave but makes you a son by adoption 

  • Now you can call God Abba Father he is now your daddy 

  • The Spirit will testify with our spirit if we are God’s children 

  • Children receive an inheritance from their father 

  • We share his suffering and his glory ( we don't just take our inheritance and life the total peaceful we will have trials and how we deal with them represents his glory 

Our walk represents our daddy Abba it is the proof. The word Abba has the meaning papa or daddy 

The Desires of the Spirit vs the Flesh
  • Walk by the Spirit to not gratify the desires of the Flesh 

  • The flesh desires what is contrary to the spirit 

  • The spirit desires what is contrary to the flesh 

  • They conflict with each other 

  • You are not to do whatever you want 

  • If you are led by the spirit you are not under the law 

You are either pleasing God over self or your self over God 

Our walk is the conduct of our lives 

To walk you have to be active not passive the spirit leads we follow 

Two ways of life, Two outcomes 

The Acts of the Flesh vs The Fruit of the Spirt
  • Acts of the flesh 

Sexual immorality








Fits of rage 

Self ambition






Those who practice these things will not inherit the Kingdom of God 

These are obvious and observable 

To walk in these is slavery 

Believers who live in the flesh will have consequences 

Work is something you.. Works of the flesh or works spirit ;

Fruit of the Spirit 










Just as the works of the flesh are evident so is the fruit 

Against these, there is no law 

Those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh and its passions and desires 

We live by the spirit so we keep in step with the spirit march with the commander leading the holy spirit must be included in every move 

Let us not become conceited provoking and envying each other you can't take credit for the fruit you bear that’s all on the Spirit and you can't envy another person's fruit 


The flesh must be crucified
