But In The Spirit

Topic: We Cannot Please God Living In The Flesh

So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God. But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.

‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭8-9‬ (NKJV)

Daily Reading Plan

Matthew 21-22

Bible Versions:

Romans 8:8-9(NLT) – 8 That’s why those who are still under the control of their sinful nature can never please God. 9 But you are not controlled by your sinful nature. You are controlled by the Spirit if you have the Spirit of God living in you. (And remember that those who do not have the Spirit of Christ living in them do not belong to him at all.)

Thoughts of Devotion:

Scripture teaches us very clearly how we can please God. There is no doubt that if we truly want to live lives pleasing to God all we have to do is follow the instructions of the Word of God, it’s as simple as that! In this portion it teaches us that only those who live life in the Spirit may be pleasing in the eyes of the Lord. We have no reason to live in the flesh, even Romans 8: 2 tells us, “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.”

Thank God we have been delivered from the power there is in sin, because we can no longer be dominated by it! Living in the flesh should be something of the past, as Romans 7:5 tells us, “For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death.” The days when our flesh and sinful will would lead our lives has been left in the past.We can no longer allow our old nature to dominate us. If we allow this, then we cannot please God.”

We have now been free to serve the Lord in the power of the Holy Spirit. We are the temple of His Spirit as 1 Corinthians 6:19 reminds us, “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?” With that reason we must live directed and governed by our new nature in Christ, spiritual lives reflect Christ in our daily living. We must pray this morning that we always live conscience of the Holy Spirit and His work in our lives, only in that way will we be able to please God!

Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭2‬ (NKJV)- For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.

I Corinthians‬ ‭6‬:‭19‬ (NKJV)- Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own

Matthew‬ ‭3‬:‭17‬ (NKJV)- And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”

  1. Father God, keep me in your will. Don’t let me fall short. Father God, continue to grow in me, so that it is You who lives & works in me. Amen!

    Gal 6:8 Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.
