Life in Christ

The spirit that reigns within us. Life in Christ. The Holy Spirit within.

   John 14:16-17   And I will pray the Father, and he shall give 
   you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 
   {17} Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, 
   because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; 
   for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.  {23) If a man 
   love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, 
   and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. 

   Rom 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which 
   are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after 
   the Spirit. {5} For they that are after the flesh do mind the 
   things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the 
   things of the Spirit. {6} For to be carnally minded is death; 
   but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. {7} Because the 
   carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the 
   law of God, neither indeed can be. {8} So then they that are in 
   the flesh cannot please God. {9} But ye are not in the flesh, 
   but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in 
   you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none 
   of his. {10} And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because 
   of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. {11} 
   But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead 
   dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also 
   quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. 
   {13} For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye 
   through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall 
   live. {14} For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they 
   are the sons of God. {16} The Spirit itself beareth witness 
   with our spirit, that we are the children of God: {17} And if 
   children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with 
   Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also 
   glorified together. 

   1 Cor 2:12-14   Now we have received, not the spirit of the 
   world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the 
   things that are freely given to us of God. {13} Which things 
   also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, 
   but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things 
   with spiritual. {14} But the natural man receiveth not the 
   things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: 
   neither can he know them, because they are spiritually 
   discerned. 

   1 Cor 3:16   Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and 
   that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 

   Gal 5:16-26   This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall 
   not fulfil the lust of the flesh. {17} For the flesh lusteth 
   against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these 
   are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the 
   things that ye would. {18} But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye 
   are not under the law. {19} Now the works of the flesh are 
   manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, 
   lasciviousness, {20} Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, 
   emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, {21} Envyings, 
   murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I 
   tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that 
   they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 
   {22} But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, 
   longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, {23} Meekness, 
   temperance: against such there is no law. {24} And they that 
   are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and 
   lusts. {25} If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the 
   Spirit. {26} Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking 
   one another, envying one another. 

   Eph 2:1-5   And you hath he quickened, who were dead in 
   trespasses and sins: {2} Wherein in time past ye walked 
   according to the course of this world, according to the prince 
   of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the 
   children of disobedience: {3} Among whom also we all had our 
   conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, 
   fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were 
   by nature the children of wrath, even as others. {4} But God, 
   who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 
   {5} Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together 
   with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 

   1 John 3:24   And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in 
   him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, 
   by the Spirit which he hath given us.
