Romans (Program #16) – The Freedom of the Spirit in Our spirit (2)

There is no reason that Christians should suffer from condemnation of any kind.  Rather, they should live a daily life that is victorious according to the Law of the Spirit of life as described in Romans 8.  The apostle Paul in Romans 8:1 says, “There is now then no condemnation to those who are in Christ”. If you have ever experienced condemnation or have battled with this monster that attacks Christians everywhere, you will not want to miss today’s Life-Study.

Probably, condemnation is one of the most common negative conditions of believers everywhere.  All of us have battled with this at one time or another and it really can be a serious problem for all Christians if they don’t get help.  Condemnation is a terrible thing.  We should not live a life under condemnation, yet many Christians do.  more…

Romans (Program #15) – The Freedom of the Spirit in Our spirit (1)

When we come to Romans chapter eight, we have to say “Hallelujah!” because here, Romans 8 is not a refrigerator, but a dining table and the Lord is saying “Come and dine!”

We have come to one of the landmark chapters in the entire divine revelation today; that is Romans 8. You will not want to miss this life-study.

It’s no accident that Romans 8 follows Romans 7, both in the sequence of the Bible and more significantly in our experience. When you look at Romans 7, you say “Oh what a mess” because it just ends with a wretched man – “Wretched man! Who will deliver me from the body of this death?”  We just see a person who is doing his best to respond to God’s law.  more…

Romans (Program #14) – The Bondage of the Law in Our Flesh (2)

Simply speaking, we just need to turn to the spirit in our spirit, set our mind on the spirit and switch on the law of the spirit of life. Then we can overcome the law of sin and death in our being; and spontaneously, we live Christ and express Christ.

If you have ever struggled with wanting to do the right thing, but failing and feeling condemned. You are experiencing what Paul talked about in Romans chapter 7. And you won’t want to miss today’s life study of Romans with Witness Lee. Thank you for joining us today as we explore one of the most perplexing aspects of the Christian life..

Romans (Program #68) – The Processed God Being the Law of the Spirit of Life

Today we will see a particular term the law of the Spirit of life in Romans chapter 8 which tells us how the Triune God is transforming the tripartite man.

One of the wonderful verses in the New Testament tells us that the law of the Spirit of life has freed us from sin and from death. It may seems strange that a law frees us from sin and from death. We will explore this freeing law of life on today’s life study.

For our final three programs in Romans we come back to chapter 8 and revisit some of the real highlights of this crucial chapter in all of Scripture.

Romans (Program #41) – Saved in Life from Sin and Worldliness

We can draw water from the wells of salvation and we can be saved day by day in His life. The Bible is a book of life. The gospel of John reveals Christ as life to us but Romans brings us fully into the experience of this life.

This is easily one of the most important portions of the Bible for our Christian life. What is the most marvelous relationship that we’re going to see between the gospel of John and the book of Romans? John shows us that Christ as life meets the need of every man’s case – whatever our case is, whatever kind of need we have, whatever kind of condition or situation we’re in – Christ as life meets our need! But John doesn’t show us in particular the way we can experience Christ as life.  more…

Romans (Program #39) – Life and Death in Romans Five through Eight

The book of Romans chapter 8:10 says “…if Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, the spirit is life because of righteousness”. Two parts of the tripartite man are mentioned here with two conditions – the body is dead, the spirit is life.

Our life study today is one of those that presents the Bible in such a marvelous fashion that it has definitely the effect of strengthening our faith in God’s word. The Bible has such a consistent thought and revelation once we have the keys to open it up. We’ll see in this current message how that our natural way of trying to understand the word of God by the principle of right and wrong doesn’t work. Today we are going to see two keys given that really show us the way to get into the Bible in a living way so that it supplies us with life.

Romans (Program #38) – Law in Romans Seven and Eight

Romans chapters 7 and 8 are the most crucial chapters to every Christian in understanding how to live a vital Christian life.

Paul was speaking frankly concerning his experience, what he was doing, what he could do and what he couldn’t do. If ever there was a man that could be good, that was equipped to be good, to fulfill the law and be obedient, this would have been Paul. Yet he met with such experience that he ended up crying “What wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from … this death?” (Romans 7:24) Many many believers identify with that – we feel that we have tried, that we’ve worked, we’ve tried plan A and then we heard plan B. We go from plan to plan, thinking that something is going to finally make this Christian life vital and real to all of us. And, some things help in a little bit and the it seems like somehow the things get shorted out and sometimes disastrously so and yet many times we get up and start again.  more…
