Living By The Spirit (Part 3)

Romans 8:18-30

March 10, 2019 • Mike DuBard • Romans 8:18-30

Often so many of us have tunnel vision when it comes to present suffering. We only see what’s happening today. We think if God loves us, we should be spared from suffering, or at least it should be kept to a minimum, but suffering should not cause us to despair, it should compel us to have hope because of what we know God is accomplishing through our suffering, and that he has not left us alone in the midst of our suffering.

If God Is For Us

Romans 8:31-39 • March 17, 2019 • Mike DuBard

We are loved, we are secure. Nothing can change our standing before God. Nothing can remove our status as God’s children. Nothing can separate us from the incredible love God has for us.

Living By The Spirit (Part 2)

Romans 8:12-17 • March 3, 2019 • Mike DuBard

Because we are no longer in bondage to the power of sin, we no longer need to fear God’s judgment, the Holy Spirit comes and removes that fear and in its place gives us a sense of peace and security. How does he do that? By reminding us that we are not slaves owned by sin, we are adopted as sons and daughters who belong to God. The Spirit does not make people slaves, but sons.

Living By The Spirit (Part 1)

Romans 8:1-11 • February 24, 2019 • Mike DuBard

We often believe the Spirit has provided for our past sin, but then think if we are going to see sin defeated today it’s up to us. That results in us simply trying to manage sin, and we wonder why we it never seems to be defeated. We try to pull ourselves up by our bootstraps, we try to stop doing what we know we shouldn’t and try to start doing what we know we should, and we wonder why we keep failing at both – the answer is because you can’t do either on your own.
