romans 8:6 sermon

A soul which finds its aims and expends its energies in catering for the needs and pleasures of its bodily instrument, is virtually dead. This means that in the order of salvation, regeneration precedes faith. The element of a happy life. Also, unbelievers often think that a holy God is too strict and foreboding. He labels that view as Arminian. Do I seek to please Him with my thoughts, my words, and my deeds? First, spiritual-mindedness is life. HOW THIS STATE OF MIND MAY BE ORIGINATED AND PROMOTED. All those tendencies which the apostle includes under the name of the "carnal mind," must be brought into subjection. It is enmity against God, as it follows in the next verse to the text, and it is a deprivation of the life of God which should be in us. A. Barrel.We often hear it said of one or another individual, "He is a very spiritual person," or "He is very unspiritual." *These truths pertain to how we evaluate ourselves. There is no small object in God's kingdom. That in many cases this appears to be true there is no doubt; but there can be as little doubt that the failure is chargeable, not to religion, but to its absence.5. (2) Peace. 24) the affections and lusts they are both joined together, as who should say lustful affections. It recognises its duties to others and to God, and its endeavours are made to discharge these though at cost of self-denial to the body. For with the want of all that is spiritual about him, there is still a remainder of feeling which makes him sensible of his want, and a remorse and a terror about invisible things, even amid the busy appliance of this world's opiates. Mortal creature, spirit of Almighty inspiration, clothed in flesh! 7. A soul which finds its aims and expends its energies in catering for the needs and pleasures of its bodily instrument, is virtually dead. Spiritually dead people are cut off from understanding the things of the Spirit, including the gospel (1 Cor. Is there any reason why things so different should be called by the same name? A soul which finds its aims and expends its energies in catering for the needs and pleasures of its bodily instrument, is virtually dead. 29, 30; John 4:14).III. 3. All those tendencies which the apostle includes under the name of the "carnal mind," must be brought into subjection. A. The gifts of the Spirit are not bestowed upon us to lie idle. "To be carnally-minded is death." "Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God." All those tendencies which the apostle includes under the name of the "carnal mind," must be brought into subjection. It yields pure and permanent enjoyment when all other sources fail, and in every variety and change of circumstance, and is productive of perfect felicity in heaven.3. Again, darkness of apprehension when we are taught, as the disciples, slow of heart (Luke 24:2, 5; Mark 16:14). A life of piety furnishes the heart with those affections which give it the highest pleasure, and best promote its improvement. It appears to us, therefore, as a great enemy.2. But the spiritual mind, while opposed to what is carnal, completing what is moral, has of course a position and intrinsic quality of its own, which we must go beyond all terms of negation and comparison to set forth. The resigned and submissive will, walking confidently after Divine guidance. 2:14; 2 Cor. The whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now. Each of these is such as is consequent to spiritual-mindedness in those who are the subjects of it. Renewal of the mind by the Spirit (John 3:6, 7).2. Now, the Scriptures are very far from countenancing neglect of the body; they exalt it as the instrument of Christian service, the temple of God. By —1. Forasmuch as the matter of it, it is conversant about things of that nature, as grace, and conversion, and regeneration, and such things as these. "(3) Habitually. John Calvin describes his own conversion from Catholicism by saying, “God by a sudden conversion subdued and brought my mind to a teachable frame” (Calvin’s Commentaries [Baker], preface to the Psalms, p. xl). Updated: Sat, 10/07/2017 - 07:12 By admin. To follow Christ is its life task. ITS FRUITS AND EXPERIENCES. The consequence. We feel spiritually. For, having the Spirit, we have in ourselves an agency for helping our infirmities. True, it may be "life" without "peace." The mind which the Holy Spirit infuses into the regenerate, and which desires and pursues after spiritual things. First, with God Himself (Romans 5:1), etc. Hence, while he is assured that to live is Christ, he is equally confident that to die would be gain. )True piety peacefully pleasantD. And we may see it in these several distempers, as — First, there is ignorance of the things of God and which concern our own eternal salvation (Jeremiah 4:22; 1 Corinthians 15:54). Someone says, “If unbelievers cannot repent and believe, it’s not fair of God to demand that they do.” Your response? And as we retest not grieve the Author of the spiritual mind, so we must be careful not to "quench" His sacred influences. Barrel. But of the inner springs which regulate these activities, of the essential nature of life we are ignorant. As a matter, then, of fact, every man may test his condition and state by this proof. ceded. Thirdly, with others (Proverbs 16:7). If we take it specifically and restrictively, so it does point out that blessing which is properly and peculiarly so-called, and that in all the several kinds and distributions of it. (2) Is of the highest and noblest character. He is "carnal," if he gives the first and largest place in his heart to the things of the world; he is "spiritual," if he gives that preeminence to the exercises of faith.3. "Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God." He goes on to emphasize that you cannot be saved unless God saves you. What he shall be it does not yet appear. This is a point that will generally be con. And how is it wrought by the "mind of the spirit"? And peace, as I said, in the full extent. A Spirit of "supplication," He is grieved when we grow remiss in the exercises of devotion. As the raging fire turns everything which is cast into it into its own nature; or as the flower makes common use of the rain and the snow drift, the sunbeam, and the dew, to minister to the nourishment and support of its own vitality; so, by the power of a Divine affinity, does the spiritual mind assimilate all things to itself.6. 7 The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Each of these is such as is consequent to spiritual-mindedness in those who are the subjects of it. In 8:5, Paul sets forth the contrast between these two groups: “For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.” To be “according to the flesh” means to live under the domination of the flesh and to obey its dictates. WITH WHAT THIS STATE OF MIND IS IDENTIFIED. The mind which the Holy Spirit infuses into the regenerate, and which desires and pursues after spiritual things. Which shall be our portion, our destiny? In the embarrassments of moral choice, in the oppositions of conflicting duties, we look to have the mind of the Spirit.3. The mind of the Spirit belongs as truly to "the babe in Christ" as to "the perfect man"; to the awakened sinner, in his first convictions, as to the triumphant saint just entering on his rest. A life of holiness is calculated to fill the mind with the richest enjoyment, and raise it to its highest state of improvement. There is the life and peace of —1. ITS FRUITS AND EXPERIENCES. And as we retest not grieve the Author of the spiritual mind, so we must be careful not to "quench" His sacred influences. Pastor Palmer did not raise his eyes from his writing, which he continued to do as he spoke, so he did not know what effect his words had until after a moment’s silence he heard a choking cry, along with the words, “I have been trying my best for three whole days and cannot.” “Ah,” responded Palmer, raising his eyes and putting down his pen, “that puts a different face upon it; we will go then and tell the difficulty straight to God.” He then reports: We knelt down and I prayed as though this was the first time in human history that this trouble had ever arisen; that here was a soul in the most desperate extremity, which must believe or perish, and hopelessly unable of itself, to do it; that, consequently it was just the case for divine interposition; and pleading most earnestly for the fulfillment of the divine promise. )The spiritual mindD. In a short time he came through the struggle, rejoicing in the hope of eternal life. Only God can take away a sinner’s heart of stone and give a heart of flesh that loves Him. Renewal of the mind by the Spirit (John 3:6, 7).2. Perhaps you’re thinking, “But I know many unbelievers who don’t hate God. A man may be honest in his worldly affairs, blameless in every earthly relation, without being truly spiritual; for, besides the earthly and human relations in which we stand, we sustain relations heavenly and Divine. Renewal of the mind by the Spirit (John 3:6, 7).2. This shows us what ill judges of the things of God and the matters of religion such persons are as are merely carnal, and have no more but the light of reason in them, which is so much dimmed and obscured by sin, is as if blind men were to judge of colours, which is very improper and impertinent. Forasmuch as the matter of it, it is conversant about things of that nature, as grace, and conversion, and regeneration, and such things as these. DEATH CONSIDER AS THE MINDING OF THE FLESH.1. Then would you say of him that he had become dead to the joys and the interests of home. A Spirit of "love," He is grieved at the indulgence of envious and malignant passions. It is safer to honour Him too much than too little when we know that the sin of neglecting Him will never be forgiven either in this world or in the world to come. Other things being equal, he is far the happiest man who has the purest conscience, who most promptly applies for its decision, and most cheerfully obeys its dictates. This may serve to humble us, and lay us low in our own thoughts. And in proportion as it is attained, and the soul, rising superior to the claims of the flesh, feasts its powers on the things unseen and eternal, and labours at its task here with reference to them, and to Him who dwells there, in that proportion the soul lives; occupies itself in a way which trains it for immortality, and prepares it to see God.(T. There is nought in the character of the spiritually minded that exempts them from the hostility of other men; but there is the sense of a present God in the feeling of whose love there is a sunshine which the world knoweth not; and there is the prospect of a future heaven in whose sheltering bosom it is known that the turbulence of this weary pilgrimage will soon be over; and there is even a charity that mellows our present sensation of painfulness, and makes the revolt that is awakened by the coarse and vulgar exhibition of human asperity to be somewhat more tolerable. Thus we see the carnality of our reason and higher part. "Sanctification of the Spirit, and belief of the truth," go together. First, with God Himself (Romans 5:1), etc. "To be spiritually minded," according to "the wise men after the flesh," is to be mad; according to the votaries of sensual pleasure, is to be melancholy; according to the Word of God, "life and peace." Life, then, as we generally see it, is bright, beautiful, and attractive. Secondly, it is death also demeritoriously. This may serve to show us the great difference betwixt the children of God and other men; betwixt those that are spiritually-minded and those that are carnal. To be spiritually minded is peace. To be spiritually-minded, then, is to have a sense, a conviction, and inward knowledge of the reality, solidity, and permanent security of spiritual things. The second is the end of the spiritual, which is expressed in two terms to us, in life and in peace. The very essence of sin is rebellion against the Divine authority. Rather, zero in on the person’s rebellion and refusal to submit to God. )Spiritual mindednessG. Again, darkness of apprehension when we are taught, as the disciples, slow of heart (Luke 24:2, 5; Mark 16:14). This verse gives us the views of one occupying a point of view different to the one we are accustomed to take.I. Life in sunshine. That death is the cessation of activities which befalls the living body, is a natural, but cannot even we see it is a partial way of viewing it? First, if the aims of the soul be confined to its perishing tenement, it follows that the soul's occupation and pleasures will be gone when the body dies. It is to be aware that even the broad streets and mighty pathways which the astronomer descries, laid out from globe to globe, do not embrace the whole or highest survey of God's creation. And, while you should be as cogent as possible, salvation is not a matter of convincing someone with persuasive arguments. THE MEANS BY WHICH SPIRITUAL MINDEDNESS MAY BE PRODUCED AND PROMOTED.1. "To be spiritually minded," according to "the wise men after the flesh," is to be mad; according to the votaries of sensual pleasure, is to be melancholy; according to the Word of God, "life and peace." 6 The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. The third and last notion of life which is here signified, and that indeed which is mainly intended, is that it is life eternal. 2. WHENCE HAVE WE IT?1. "(5) Peace in death; for "mark the perfect man, and behold the upright, for the end of that man is peace."III. (See last week’s me, 4. The Spirit ordinarily works by means, the chief of which are the study of the Scriptures, private devotion, and public worship.3. To follow Christ is its life task. They do not want God to rule over them. First, all worldlings, who savour of nothing but of the earth and of the things of the earth. Hence it is that it is expressed indefinitely, "to be carnally-minded is death"; namely, whatever condition a man be in, in regard of the world, whether rich, or noble, or powerful, or whatever we can think of. From what we have said of the death of those who are carnally, you will be at no loss to understand what is meant by THE LIFE OF THOSE WHO ARE SPIRITUALLY MINDED. Grace it is of a calming and composing nature, it puts all things into a state of quietness. It is enmity against God, as it follows in the next verse to the text, and it is a deprivation of the life of God which should be in us. WHEREIN THIS STATE OF MIND CONSISTS. Romans 8:7b: “for it does not subject itself to the law of God.” God’s law reveals who He is and how He commands us to live. The answer which these words give to the question, What is death? In 8:6, Paul explains that the reason those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh is that they are spiritually dead: “For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace.” Then, in 8:7-8, he explains further why the mind set on the flesh is spiritually dead and headed toward eternal death: because it is hostile toward God, not subject to His law, and displeasing to Him. "Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God." A Spirit of "supplication," He is grieved when we grow remiss in the exercises of devotion. This is corrupted, and so tending to death (thus Romans 1:22, and Ephesians 4:8). Romans 8:7a: “Because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God.” Paul uses the same word (“hostile”) to describe a deed of the flesh (Gal. They are cut off from the pleasures of sense, while their hopes of glory and their enjoyment of God are too inoperative to render them happy. These are the ingredients of a present life, which is the token and the foretaste of life everlasting. To follow Christ is its life task. II. The answer which these words give to the question, What is death? First, it is in sort and in a certain sense temporal or natural death. A. (2) Is of the highest and noblest character. There is no life, unless you live by the faith of the Son of God. Commentary, Romans 8:6-11 (Lent 5A), Margaret Aymer, Preaching This Week, WorkingPreacher.org, 2011. May God grant that these evidences of His grace would be growing in each of us! WHAT IT IS. But beyond all these is spiritual life, which assimilates its possessor to its Divine source.2. Christian converse. A life of piety promotes happiness. Secondly, it is death also spiritually, which is somewhat further here intended. Paul is convinced that because of Christ’s life, death, and resurrection a new reality is available for humankind. "They that are after the Spirit do mind the things of the Spirit." This first of all teaches us how impotent and unable anyone is by nature to his own conversion, while we are depraved in every part of us. The third and last notion of life which is here signified, and that indeed which is mainly intended, is that it is life eternal. )To be carnally minded is deathThomas Horton, D. D.First, the subject, the carnal mind. There is a service which may be laborious, exact, and costly, but it is the service of a bondsman — of one who is labouring to obey, before he has been fully brought to believe. But beyond all these is spiritual life, which assimilates its possessor to its Divine source.2. Thirdly, this carnal mind is oftentimes also temporal death actually and in the consequence of it. THE MEANS BY WHICH SPIRITUAL MINDEDNESS MAY BE PRODUCED AND PROMOTED.1. A. But life it is, and must be. Another way of sa, ing it is that such people are “in the flesh” (8:8); they live in the sphere of the flesh. "Sanctification of the Spirit, and belief of the truth," go together. For, having the Spirit, we have in ourselves an agency for helping our infirmities. A. Clark.To be thus minded is life and peace; or the life of true piety is a life of peaceful pleasure.1. What is meant by these expressions? Romans 8:6 "For to be carnally-minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace." It is said, however, that there are some whom religion has made unhappy. "Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God." Grace it is of a calming and composing nature, it puts all things into a state of quietness. Secondly, it is death also demeritoriously. The gifts of the Spirit are not bestowed upon us to lie idle. WHENCE HAVE WE IT?1. That in many cases this appears to be true there is no doubt; but there can be as little doubt that the failure is chargeable, not to religion, but to its absence.5. The instrumental means is "the Word of God," which by the Spirit, is made "effectual in them that believe." Moore, M. IN WHAT FORMS DOES IT MANIFEST ITSELF?1. )Death and lifeT. DEATH CONSIDER AS THE MINDING OF THE FLESH.1. Spiritual-mindedness is spiritual life so also. In the quickened condition of the religious sensibilities; the transformation of "the heart of stone into the heart of flesh." Romans 8:6 The mind of the flesh is death, but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace, ... Again, while the spiritual is opposed to the carnal mind, we learn from other passages of Scripture it is more than what we commonly signify by morality. A speculative knowledge of the gospel is not life; nor is a performance of the ceremonies of religion; nor a visible union with the Church. "(5) Peace in death; for "mark the perfect man, and behold the upright, for the end of that man is peace."III. He who engages in it minds the things of the Spirit. There must be life in us, while we are manifesting any of the functions of life.2. And this we do by denying them indulgence.4. HOW THIS STATE OF MIND MAY BE ORIGINATED AND PROMOTED. (5)A penitential conviction of guilt. John Piper May 31, 2015 2K Shares Sermon. 24) the affections and lusts they are both joined together, as who should say lustful affections. Awake to thy spiritual relations; live up to their solemn dignity.(C. He is permitted through rich grace to cast an eye forward toward heaven as his everlasting home.6. A life of holiness is calculated to fill the mind with the richest enjoyment, and raise it to its highest state of improvement. Barrel. Thirdly, with others (Proverbs 16:7). THE BEST MEANS OF ATTAINING IT.1. What he shall be it does not yet appear.(D. What is death? Contemplate the Word of God in the exercise of faith.3. True, it may be "life" without "peace." )True piety peacefully pleasantD. A life of piety promotes happiness. But the spiritual mind, while opposed to what is carnal, completing what is moral, has of course a position and intrinsic quality of its own, which we must go beyond all terms of negation and comparison to set forth. But beyond all these is spiritual life, which assimilates its possessor to its Divine source.2. According as we go through these punctual rites of prayer and praise, communion and consecration, with a worldly or a spiritual mind, they will be a mechanical and unmeaning mockery to us, or the very reflections of the gates of heaven. These are the things it "minds," and the body is the servant which aids it in doing so. There are two great causes of disturbance to which the heart is exposed. Those that are spiritually-minded, they are so from the Spirit of life which is in Christ Himself, and communicated to them who are members of Him. He enjoys the ministry of angels. To set home this further upon us, let us take in these considerations with us. There is no life, unless you live by the faith of the Son of God. The cultivation of such tempers as are most congruous with His revealed character, and calculated to invite His gracious presence in our souls. This carnal mind envenoms the greatest comforts, and takes away the profitable use of all the creatures that are for us. Making subservient thereto things which are not spiritual — pressing into a sanctified service every turn in the lot of life. (2) Is of the highest and noblest character. The ground of all this is, first, the gift and legacy of Christ. They wish He would be more tolerant, as they are. Its efficient cause is the Holy Spirit. Sermons from Romans What About Those Who Never Hear The Gospel? I leave them alone and don’t bother to read them.”. Moore, M. It recognises its duties to others and to God, and its endeavours are made to discharge these though at cost of self-denial to the body. Still, in every good man, conscience is more or less honoured and cultivated, while in the opposite character it is hated and neglected as Heaven's unwelcome sentinel. This is corrupted, and so tending to death (thus Romans 1:22, and Ephesians 4:8). A speculative knowledge of the gospel is not life; nor is a performance of the ceremonies of religion; nor a visible union with the Church. Secondly, we see here also God's goodness in His powerful and victorious grace, in that He suffers corruption to break out no further sometimes than it does, if not by wholly removing it, yet at least by restraining it.
