New Life in Christ!

Written By: John - Jan• 19•17

“While we continue to be influenced by our past life, ‘in the flesh,’ it is no longer the dominating influence in our present existence.  We are no longer in the flesh, but in the Spirit (Rom. 8:9).  Christ’s past (if we may so speak) is now dominant.  Our past is a past ‘in Adam'; our present existence ‘in Christ,’ in the Spirit.   This implies not only that we have fellowship with him in the communion of the Spirit, but that in him our past guilt is dealt with, and our bondage to sin, the law, and death has been brought to an end.”

Sinclair Ferguson, The Holy Spirit, page 112
