Everyday in the Spirit

Resolved In the Spirit

By Louie Marsh, 2-17-2019

 

4 Intro slides:

 

1) The Holy Spirit wants me to live and be FREE.

 

16  But when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. 17  Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 2 Corinthians 3:16-17 (ESV)

 

  • True Freedom is only found in the GOSPEL OF JESUS.

 

17  For if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ. Romans 5:17 (ESV)

 

I Can Live Free In the Spirit By…

 

1) Letting the Spirit EMPOWER ME.

 

18  Then the Spirit clothed Amasai, chief of the thirty, and he said, “We are yours, O David, and with you, O son of Jesse! Peace, peace to you, and peace to your helpers! For your God helps you.” Then David received them and made them officers of his troops. 1 Chronicles 12:18 (ESV)

 

  • I am empowered to be Christ’s

 

8  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8 (ESV)

 

  • I am empowered to REJECT the ways of sin.

 

1  There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. 2  For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:1-2 (ESV)

 

2) By Letting the Spirit be my LIFE.

 

6  But now we are released from the law, having died to that which held us captive, so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit and not in the old way of the written code. Romans 7:6 (ESV)

 

  • I always stand on the Word – but not in

 

6  who has made us sufficient to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. 2 Corinthians 3:6 (ESV)

 

3) By Letting the Spirit bring me WISDOM.

 

2  And the Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD. Isaiah 11:2 (ESV)

 

  • I rely on the Spirit alone to bring me spiritual

 

13  When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. John 16:13 (ESV)

 

 

Spirit Standard #7

 

To be Resolved In the Spirit means that I must always choose to defer to the Spirit, trust the Spirit, be filled with the Spirit and seek the Spirit’s wisdom in His Word.
