Romans 8:1-17 Living in the Spirit - Dre Niehaus

Dre teaches from Romans 8 on the heels of Paul’s very personal struggle testimony of Chapter 7 and how our experience with sin is a daily battle. Rom 8:1 shouts out that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus but that this is only true for those who have put their faith and trust in the good news of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. Rom 1:17-18

Dre shares his own testimony of striving to live in the Spirit and not in the flesh and also his observation and experience of tertiary campus ministry. He concludes with the following:

  1. When we struggle with the spirit filled life it is because we do not recognize that Jesus completely dealt with sin through his perfect life death and resurrection, and we fail to rely upon the indwelling of the Holy Spirit to make it possible to walk closely with the Lord to be empowered to serve God and live as he would have us live as a new and empowered life.

  2. There is no bullet point list other than to live by the spirit and not by the flesh and thereby fulfill the whole law.

  3. Its not what we do, its how and why we do things. Are we undertaking life under the power of our own flesh or are we walking in the Spirit to please God?
