Wednesday, June 19 / July 2, 2008: Rom 8:1-13, Matt 10:16-22
- passage: Rom 8:1-8:13
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus,
who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the
Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin
and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through
the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh,
and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the
law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after
the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of
the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is
life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it
is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they
that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh,
but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now
if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. And if
Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is
life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of him that raised
up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the
dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth
in you. Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live
after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if
ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.
passage: Matt 10:16-10:22
Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore
wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. But beware of men: for they
will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their
synagogues; And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my
sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. But when they
deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it
shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. For it is
not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.
And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father
the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and
cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for
my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
