Led by the Spirit (Day Is At Hand #6)

/Get the Sermons Automatically

What changes for us before and after Jesus? Now God has given us His own Spirit who leads us to pray as God's children—"Abba, Father!"


Main Text: Romans 8:1-17

Simple outline:

  • We're in an 8 week series in Romans 5-8, dedicated to the implications Jesus' work ought to have in our lives, now that "the night is far gone and the day is at hand" as Romans 13:12 tells us.
  • In the previous chapter, Paul lamented his inability to stop sinning—as much as he may want to live in the self-giving way of Jesus, he finds it nearly impossible by his own strength.
  • 8:1-4: Thank God that He's done for us what we couldn't do by our own strength.
  • 8:5-8: God's Spirit leads to life and peace, not death and hostility.
  • 8:9-11: Every Christian has the Holy Spirit living inside them—therefore every Christian will be fully healed from the effects of sin, body and all.
  • 8:12-17: So let's be led by this Spirit, the One who has made us sons and daughters of the living God.
