Sermon Notes

God created us in His image and always designed for there to be communication with us and Him; but through sin, we fell out of close communication with Him and we find ourselves in the predicament we are in today; a perfect spirit and a mind that is messed up!!

The thing is this; my being able to hear God’s voice is not based on the maturity of the soul (mind) it is based on my “walking in the spirit” which really means that I am looking to be focused on listening to what my spirit is saying vs. living based on what my old mind thinks…

Gal. 5:16-17 So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions.

No matter how hard I try to “behave” to be a “good” person, on my own I cannot make it work because the Christian life is not a head issue, it is a heart or spirit issue. It is learning to discount what my mind is telling me, and think hard about what the Spirit is saying to me…
