Romans 8:1-11

Allen Burns


Sermon Title: “Setting our minds on the Spirit”

Sermon Text: Romans 8:1-11

Scripture reading: Romans 8:1-11

MAIN IDEA: God’s work of grace obligates those who are in Christ to live according to the Spirit

Answering Three Important Questions

Question One: Who is “in Christ”? Those who are justified by faith; who stand in grace; who consider themselves dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ; and who were made to die to the Law in order to be joined to Christ.

Question Two: What does “living according to the Spirit” look like?

A person living according to the Spirit walks according to the Sprit and not the flesh (v.8:4)

A person living according to the Spirit …sets their mind on things of the Sprit and not the flesh (v.8:5-8)

Recognize the mind is a spiritual battlefield

Four applications

Set your mind upon the glory of God

Set your mind upon unity

Set your mind upon truth

Set your mind upon practicing godliness
