The Bible teaches that humanity is by nature alienated from God, and therefore sees Him as an enemy. What a miracle of grace, then, when He reveals Himself and draws us to saving faith! In this sermon, Alistair Begg focuses on what is uniquely true in the life of the believer. The critical distinction, we learn, is the presence of God’s Spirit within us, empowering us and reminding us that we belong to Christ.
9You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. 10But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus4 from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.
