Oh, the Benefits

today's reading.
Romans 8:12-17    So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh...
Romans 8:12-17

Romans 8:12-17think about it.
What makes it possible for us to "belong" to the family of God? What was our state before we were adopted into God's family? What do we gain from this spiritual family? How can you apply those within your biological family? Who in your earthly family needs to join the family of God? How will you pray for them today?

Romans 8: 1-17 is all about life in the Spirit. These verses really lay out for us the change that happens when we accept Christ as Savior and commit to following Him. It's full of detail (which I love) and it's such an incredible and encouraging read.

So based on Romans 8:1-17 what are some of the benefits of living "according to the Spirit" or "by the Spirit"? What do those benefits mean for you as you live the Christian life today? Tami W.
