Scripture Reading: Romans 6:1-6

"To be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually  minded is life and peace. Because THE CARNAL MIND IS  ENMrIY AGAINST GOD: for it is not subject to the law of  God, neither indeed can be. SO THEN THEY THAT ARE IN  THE FLESH CANNOT PLEASE GOD" (Romans 8:6-8). So  many warnings throughout God's Word; so few who properly  heed them! The believer has been sufficiently enabled to resist  the temptations of the worldly elements. His problem is that  he neglects to maintain his focus upon the Person of Jesus  Christ, thus lowering himself to the plane of the carnal  creature of whom the psalmist says, "[He] will not seek after  God: God is not in all his thoughts" (Psalms 10:4).

Rather, the believer should follow the example expressed  by David: "Search me, 0 God, and know my heart: try me,  and know my thoughts" (Psalms 139:23). "Knowing this, that  our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of sin might  be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin"  (Romans 6:6).

"Know ye notthat the friendship of the world is ENMITY  WITH GOD? Whosoever therefore win be a friend of the  world is the enemy of God" (James 4:4). These are strong  words, but they deal with a strong issue! The great God and  our Saviour Jesus Christ performed a redemptive work the  magnitude of which is inconceivable to our meager capacity of  understanding. But the significance is made perfectly plain to  us through holy writ. "[Christ] His own self bare our sins in  His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should  live unto righteousness ... being made a curse for us" (I Peter 2:24, Galatians 3:13).

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
