Agreematism #3

Romans 8:1-4 (NLT)

So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. 2 And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death. 3 The law of Moses was unable to save us because of the weakness of our sinful nature. So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins. 4 He did this so that the just requirement of the law would be fully satisfied for us, who no longer follow our sinful nature but instead follow the Spirit.



Major Takeaway:

To walk with the Holy Spirit - we need to be in agreement with the Holy Spirit.

Amos 3:3 (NKJV)

Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?


Today we are going to talk about being in agreement with the Spirit.

Romans 8:1-4 (NLT)

So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. 2 And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death. 3 The law of Moses was unable to save us because of the weakness of our sinful nature. So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins. 4 He did this so that the just requirement of the law would be fully satisfied for us, who no longer follow our sinful nature but instead follow the Spirit.


Ephesians 4:30 (NLT)

And do not bring sorrow to God’s Holy Spirit by the way you live.


When we choose to live according to our sinful nature - we create a magnetic field that pushes the Holy Spirit out of our lives.


The more we sin or walk according to sinful nature the more we are attracted to sin. 

The more we walk with the Spirit of God the more we attracted to the things of God. 


We create a magnetic filed around us by the choices we make. Thats AGREEMATISM. The magnetic POWER of agreement.

Galatians 5:16-17 (NLT)

…let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. 17 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…


Romans 8:5-8 (NLT)

Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. 6 So letting (you have the control) your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace. 7 For the sinful nature is always hostile to God. It never did obey God’s laws, and it never will. 8 That’s why those who are still under the control of their sinful nature can never please God.


Romans 7:24-25 (NLT)

Oh, what a miserable person I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death? 25 Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord…


Romans 8:11-14 (NLT)

The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you.

12 Therefore, dear brothers and sisters, you have no obligation to do what your sinful nature urges you to do. 13 For if you live by its dictates, you will die. But if through the power of the Spirit you put to death the deeds of your sinful nature, you will live. 

14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God.


Let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves.
