For Wednesday evening services, the Lord has lead me to do a Bible study for practical Bible verses in Romans. Please come back to these Bible lessons in order to review them and learn them. Whenever we have learned the meaning of Bible verses and think about them throughout each day, we will be in perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3). Not only that, but when we are in a situation in our daily lives and are tempted to sin, we can think back to what we have learned from the Bible and say to ourselves, "The Bible says to not do what I am tempted to say, think, do, and/or desire right now, so I am going to refuse to give in to this temptation." This is what Romans 12:2 means, and it says, "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." This is also the pattern that Jesus used when the devil tempted Him to sin in Matthew 4:1-11.
My copy and paste feature doesn't keep the words that are supposed to be italicized, so instead of me doing it manually, refer to a Bible to see which words are italicized.
1There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, (going to heaven) who walk not after the flesh, (They spend their time saying, thinking, and doing what they want to say, think, and do, and those things don't involve Jesus.) but after the Spirit. (They spend their time saying, thinking, and doing what Jesus wants them to say, think, and do. For an example of this lifestyle, see chapter 39 of the pdf file book featured at this website - www.areyousureyouaresaved.com) If someone is a Christian, they live the exact opposite from people who aren't Christians more and more over time. (2 Corinthians 3:18)) 2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. (Once someone becomes a Christian, the Holy Spirit enters them, and His power enables them to no longer be helpless when they are tempted to sin. See notes for Romans 7:13;23.) 3For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: (Obeying the law of Moses in our own effort doesn't grant us a future home in heaven, and it doesn't give us the ability to avoid sinning when we are tempted. Jesus' death on the cross in our place provided us the only way to heaven and victory over sin. Once our hearts are prepared, and we trust Christ's work on the cross to erase our sins, the Holy Spirit enters us and gives us the ability to not sin when we are tempted.) 4That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, (Jesus, being perfect, was the only person who obeyed God's law without fault. But while on the cross, Jesus gave up this perfect standing and instead took the punishment we sinners deserve and suffered and died for our sins. We achieve His righteousness when we believe He died in our place. See chapter 3 of the pdf file book featured at this website - www.areyousureyouaresaved.com for more information.) who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (Christians have a different walk. (see chapter 39 of the pdf file book featured at this website - www.areyousureyouaresaved.com) Once it was all about themselves; now it's all about Jesus.) 5For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; (They spend their time each day “thinking” about things that do not involve God.) but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. (They spend their time each day “thinking” similar to the way explained in chapter 39 of the pdf file book featured at this website - www.areyousureyouaresaved.com) 6For to be carnally minded is death; (go to hell) but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. (go to heaven) 7Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. (Before someone becomes a Christian, their mind is controlled by their sinful nature. While under its control, they can't please God.)
9But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. (Although and thankfully, when they become a Christian and gain a new nature (controlled by the Holy Spirit), they're able to follow His ways and please Him.) Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. (See this website - http://chriswaug5.wix.com/acts170) 10And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. (God's punishment for sin is physical death followed by spiritual death in hell, but when we become Christians, we escape spiritual death and are guaranteed a future home in heaven. God seals this promise by sending the Holy Spirit to live inside our hearts once we become Christians. (2 Corinthians 1:22))
