Daily Bread 8/25/2022


    Daily Bread – August 25, 2022 (The Fifth Day – Genesis 1:20-23) Romans 6:6 – Knowing this, that our old man was crucified together with Him, so that the body of sin may be abolished, that we should no longer serve sin. The Dividing Line & The Choice Newness of life is ours (Romans 6:4). The old things have passed away (2 Corinthians 5:17). A new man has been created in righteousness and true holiness (Ephesians 4:24; Colossians 3:10). To understand and live this life, the Holy Spirit has come to teach us, lead us, and guide us. As certain as there will be a new Heaven and a new Earth, God has also made us a brand new man and destroyed the old (Isaiah 65:8,17, 66:22; and 2 Peter 3:13; Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:11). If someone turns back to become once again in bondage to the beggarly elements, to the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, the pride of life, and to a fleshly mind, they had to turned back from a divine nature and forsake a total transformation to participate with the god of this world even as Adam did (Galatians 4:9; Ephesians 2:2-3; 1 John 2:16; 2 Peter 1:3-4). The dividing line must be drawn between the new and the old, the good and the evil, the truth and the lie. We must all decide whose side we are on in this war. If we are on God’s side, then let us remain faithful and consecrated to the salvation He has given – the life of Jesus living in us. Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
