Under Obligation

So then, brethren, we are under obligation, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh — for if you are living according to the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you are putting to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. — Romans 8:12-14

“We are under obligation”. Living a Christian life has obligations. We are responsible to walk in the Spirit so that through the power of God in us we are able to put the deeds of the flesh to death. Forgiveness and grace does not give us freedom to live as we did.

Continually seeking Him,

Sharon
