Romans 8:12 – 17
Difficult as it may be to admit, most of us have been “programmed” incorrectly. Instead of being taught and encouraged to claim God’s power within us — to live above the drag of our lower nature (“the flesh”) — we have merely been instructed how to conduct our lives after we have sinned. Our mind-set has been shaped by “corrective theology” instead of “preventative theology.” And so we begin each day expecting to fall short . . . to disobey . . . to resist . . . and that focus has resulted in our cultivating a flesh-controlled mentality. This misapplication of the truth has led most Christians to settle for a low-level focus on the constant confession of sin. We endure a negative lifestyle, instead of cultivating a Spirit-controlled mentality that leads to an abundant lifestyle. Hopefully, the six verses we examine in this message will awaken us to a whole new focus and perspective.
