Life and Peace in the Spirit

18 09 2012

As we continue our series Moving in the Spirit, the book of Romans reveals a key to moving in the spirit as well as giving us insight into why some people though they desire to, aren’t.

“People who are ruled by their desires think only of themselves. Everyone who is ruled by the Holy Spirit thinks about spiritual things. If our minds are ruled by our desires, we will die. But if our minds are ruled by the Spirit, we will have life and peace.”

Rom 8:5-6

I wonder what God thinks of us when we act as if moving in the Holy Spirit is like a light switch we can turn on and off.  When we act in this manner we are deceiving ourselves. We can not be ruled by two masters, for we will love the one and hate the other, scripture reminds us.

When our lives are ruled by the flesh we are wrong to believe the Holy Spirit will still move mightily through us. That is not to say a Christian ruled by the flesh will not experience some move of the Holy Spirit because all Christians do experience the moving of the Holy Spirit. Our desires don’t delete the move of the Holy Spirit, rather our desires hinders it, much like a virus affecting the hard drive of a computer.

As we choose to be ruled by the Spirit, we then move in the spirit more freely because the fight to rule the mind is finished bringing life (in the spirit) and peace.
