THE EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE ROMANS
SPIRITUAL PRAYERS STUDY ON SPIRITUAL PRAYERS VERSES WITH SPIRITUAL PRAYERS MESSAGE
It's so great to
have you back again for another slice of Daily Bread. I hope you enjoyed
the last chapter that we shared together, and I hope that Paul's soul is becoming
more and more familiar to you. Nobody can take a subject as profound as sin
and make it so stunningly simple as our friend Paul. His method is a bit
hard to understand at times but that just means we need to focus more on
Well, Paul's message continues now, encouraging us to understand the Holy
Spirit. Let's take a look.
There is no doom to them who live in union with Christ Jesus,
who don't obey the flesh, but the Spirit.
Because the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus
has made me free from the law of sin and death.
What the law couldn't do, because it was weak through the flesh,
God, sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin,
condemned sin in the flesh,
that the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us,
who don't obey the flesh, but the Spirit.
Remember, the flesh is carnal, or mortal, and it dies. But the spirit is
immortal, or spiritual, it does not die. The flesh (our old selves, before
we were spiritually reborn) served the law. As Paul said previously, though,
sin uses the law to deceive people, so the law itself is holy, but the sin
that uses the law is evil. But, being born anew, we no longer think
carnally, but spiritually. We are now one with the Spirit, and though we
live in these mortal bodies that we drag around the earth with a
gravitational chain, we're free from the law of sin and death, and born to
the law of the Spirit of life in Christ.
Now if any man doesn't have the Spirit of Christ,
he doesn't belong to Him.
And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin;
but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
But if the
Spirit of God, who raised up Jesus from the dead lives in you,
He that raised up Christ from the dead
shall also give life to your mortal bodies by His Spirit that lives in you.
Therefore, brethren, we owe a debt, not to the flesh, or to live after the flesh.
Because if you live after the flesh, you shall die:
but if you through the Spirit, put to death the deeds of the body, you shall live.
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
You have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear;
but you have received the Spirit of adoption, by which we cry, Father, Father.
The Spirit itself reveals the TRUTH to our spirit, that we are the children of God:
And if we're children, then we're heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ.
We suffer on behalf of Him, so that we may also be glorified together.
For I suppose that the sufferings of this present time
are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
For the hope of the creature (mankind) waits for the manifestation of the sons of God.
What's Paul talking about here? Well, he's just explaining our hope of
eternal life in different terms. We eagerly await our fleshly bodies to be
gone and to be completely spiritual, immortal, Christ-like, Holy
SPIRITUAL PRAYERS LESSON WITH SPIRITUAL PRAYERS EXPLANATION
For mankind was made prone to vanity,
not willingly, but by reason of Him who has also given mankind hope,
because the creature itself also shall be delivered
from the bondage of corruption (mortality, death)
into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
For we know that all of creation groaned
and travailed (labors, suffers) in pain together until now.
And not only they, but ourselves also,
which have the first fruits of the Spirit,
(those who first received the Holy Spirit)
even we ourselves groan inside, waiting for the adoption,
to know, the redemption of our body.
For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen, is not hope:
for what a man sees, why does he still hope for?
But if we hope for what we don't see,
then we wait for it with patience.
Could you say then, that hope is the same as Faith? Just a little food
for thought. Now here's a really interesting thing that Paul teaches us
about how the Holy Spirit makes intercession for us, but first I have a
question for you to ask yourself. If you've read the Miracle Success Steps
about Prayer, you'll find that when you pray, you should pray according to
the will of God. Have you ever stopped to really think about that? You may
be thinking, Golly, if I knew what the will of God was, I'd just pray for
that, and then I wouldn't wonder why sometimes my prayers aren't answered.
There's a humorous little saying that someone came up with that goes like
this: God answers all prayers. His answers are, Yes, No, and Not now.
But getting back to what Paul said earlier (in the last Daily Bread) our
carnal selves want things that are totally different than what our spiritual
selves want. Many times, we mess up and give in to our carnal desires and
pray for those things. So, your fleshly self has a mind, and your spirit has
a mind, and we need to rely on the Holy Spirit to intervene for us and chat
with God about what our spirit is asking for, and lead us away from the
fleshly desires. Now, it should be easier for you to understand what Paul
Likewise the Spirit also helps our weaknesses:
for we don't know what we should pray for as we should:
but the Spirit itself makes intercession for us
with groanings which cannot be uttered.
And He that searches the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit,
because He makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to His purpose.
SPIRITUAL PRAYERS INFORMATION WITH SPIRITUAL PRAYERS MEANING
As you get to know Paul more and more, you'll find that he switches gears
a lot. You've probably met other people who do that as well. It may be
because Paul had so many important things to teach that he didn't want to
forget something that may have popped into his mind, so he wrote it down
before another great idea came along to do the same thing. You can tell that
while he was writing that last sentence about the Holy Spirit, he wrote that
everything works for good to those who are called by God. Now, he goes on to
talk about those who have been called.
For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate
to be conformed to the image of His Son,
that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
Moreover whom He did predestinate, them He also called:
and whom He called, them He also justified:
and whom He justified, them He also glorified.
What shall we then say to these things?
If God is for us, who can be against us?
Paul makes it clear, if you're chosen by God, you've got a lot going for
God, who spared not His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all,
how shall He not, with Christ, also freely give us all things?
Who shall accuse God's chosen of anything? It is God that justifies.
Who would dare condemn who God called?
It is Christ that died, that is risen again,
who is even at the right hand of God,
who also makes intercession for us.
Love this part ...
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
Shall trouble, or distress, or persecution,
or famine, or poverty, or peril, or war?
As it is written,
For thy sake we are killed all the day long;
we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors
through Him that loved us.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life,
nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers,
nor things present, nor things to come,
nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature,
shall be able to separate us from the love of God,
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Hope you'll join us again soon for more of Paul's great letter to the
Romans. We'll share it together right here, next time, at Daily Bread.
