There Is No Condemnation In Christ Jesus....

Happy Monday everyone!!!  During my Bible study time this morning the Lord blessed me so very much!!!  I have been working on controlling my temper and tongue lately and He gave me this scripture today.

Free from Indwelling Sin
8 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. 3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, 4 that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. 5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. 8 So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. 10 And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
Through this scripture Jesus is telling me that I can't do anything on my own.  That every time I am in the flesh I am going to fail miserably.  That I should cast all of my cares on Him for He truly cares for me.  I bet I am not the only one out there that forgets sometimes that we have the precious Holy Spirit living inside of us and if we ask Him to, He will fill us up daily with His love, His comfort and best of His HELP. It just really really blessed me and I wanted to share the victory that I feel after reading this today.  Jesus loves us very much!!!  The best part of that is when we ask Him to help us He will!! One of my favorite scriptures is "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me".  What I need to do is to remember that and not try to do all things through Teresa...  But to leave to the Holy Spirit inside of me.  Be sensitive to His voice and guidance.  What a wonderful way to start my week!!!  The Lord loves us all so much and He will forgive us and helps us through every single solitary part of our life.  It just doesn't get any better then that! He is the lover of our soul!!!  I hope all of you take the time this week to put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ!  May God bless you all this week!!!
