2. SPIRIT- Galatians 5:22-26, Colossians 1:9-10, 2 Corinthians 3:3, Romans 8:1-11

BUT THE FRUIT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IS LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS, SELF-CONTROL; AGAINST SUCH THINGS THERE IS NO LAW.  AND THOSE WHO BELONG TO CHRIST JESUS HAVE CRUCIFIED THE FLESH WITH ITS PASSIONS AND DESIRES.  IF WE LIVE BY THE HOLY SPIRIT, LET US ALSO KEEP IN STEP WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.  LET US NOT BE CONCEITED, PROVOKING ONE ANOTHER, ENVYING ONE ANOTHER.  GALATIANS 5:22-26

Keep in step with the Holy Spirit.  Go through the fruits of the Holy Spirit, do these rule your lives?  If not, Why? Jesus has crucified the flesh within us.

AND SO, FROM THE WE HEARD, WE HAVE NOT CEASED TO PRAY FOR YOU, ASKING THAT YOU MAY BE FILLED WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIS WILL IN ALL SPIRITUAL WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING, SO AS TO WALK IN A MANNER WORTHY OF THE LORD, FULLY PLEASING TO HIM, BEARING FRUIT IN EVERY GOOD WORK AND INCREASING IN THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD.  COLOSSIANS 1:9-10

Be filled with the Holy Spirit who gives all spiritual wisdom.  Are you walking in a manner worthy of the Lord Jesus? Let’s bear fruit in all our good works brought through the Holy Spirit.

AND YOU SHOW THAT YOU ARE A LETTER FROM CHRIST DELIVERED BY US, WRITTEN NOT WITH INK BUT WITH THE SPIRIT OF THE LIVING GOD, NOT ON TABLETS OF STONE BUT ON TABLETS OF HUMAN HEARTS.  2 CORINTHIANS 3:3

The Holy Spirit writes on our hearts.

THERE IS THEREFORE NOW NO CONDEMNATION FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.  FOR THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE HAS SET YOU FREE IN CHRIST JESUS FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.  FOR GOD HAS DONE WHAT THE LAW, WEAKENED BY THE FLESH, COULD NOT DO. BY SENDING HIS OWN SON IN THE LIKENESS OF SINFUL FLESH AND FOR SIN, HE CONDEMNED SIN IN THE FLESH, IN ORDER THAT THE RIGHTEOUS REQUIREMENT OF THE LAW MIGHT BE FULFILLED IN US, WHO WALK NOT ACCORDING TO THE FLESH, BUT ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT.  FOR THOSE WHO LIVE ACCORDING TO THE FLESH SET THEIR MINDS ON THINGS OF THE FLESH, BUT THOSE WHO LIVE ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT SET THEIR MINDS ON THINGS OF THE SPIRIT.  FOR TO SET THE MIND ON THE FLESH IS DEATH, BUT TO SET THE MIND ON THE SPIRIT IS LIFE AND PEACE.  FOR THE MIND THAT IS SET ON THE FLESH IS HOSTILE TO GOD, FOR IT DOES NOT SUBMIT TO GOD’S LAW; INDEED, IT CANNOT.  THOSE WHO ARE IN THE FELSH CANNOT PLEASE GOD.  YOU, HOWEVER, ARE NOT IN THE FLESH BUT IN THE SPIRIT.  IF IN FACT THE SPIRIT OF GOD DWELLS IN YOU.  ANYONE WHO DOES NOT HAVE THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST DOES NOT BELONG TO HIM.  BUT IF CHRIST IS IN YOU, ALTHOUGH THE BODY IS DEAD BECAUSE OF SIN, THE SPIRIT IS LIFE BECAUSE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.  IF THE SPIRIT OF HIM WHO RAISED CHRIST JESUS FROM THE DEAD WILL GIVE LIFE TO YOUR MORTAL BODIES THROUGH HIS SPIRIT WHO DWELLS IN YOU. ROMANS 8:1-11

The mind of the Holy Spirit in us is set on peace and life.  The mind set on flesh is hostile to God.  It cannot please God.  The Holy Spirit of God dwells in you.  Our bodies are dead because of sin and the Holy Spirit of life because of righteousness if Jesus Christ is in us.  He gives us life!
