Please notice verse 4:  “So that we now have life, which is possible because of the sacrifice of Christ on our behalf – in verse 3 – sin has then been condemned in the flesh of Christ who died as an offering for sin, so that the requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us.”. When Jesus speaks of the Holy Spirit, say in John 14:26 for example He uses the masculine personal pronoun when He says, "But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit - the Father will send Him in My name - will teach you all things and remind you of everything I have told you.". In the New Testament, the full ministry of the Holy Spirit is revealed, as I’ve been saying, in the life of the believer. “When the Spirit is come” – John 16:13 – Jesus said, “He will guide you into all truth, He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears He will speak, He will disclose to you what is to come.

All of a sudden for us there’s a new bent, there’s a new disposition, there’s a new direction, there’s a new controlling influence in our lives, and it’s the power of the Holy Spirit. All those behaviors have absolutely nothing to do with the Holy Spirit. And that’s the intention of the word “spirit”; it is motion, it is force. We no longer are under the power of the flesh, which is death, but we are – verse 6 says – under the power of the Holy Spirit. Those who are according to the Spirit, implied here again, phrone, mind the things of the Spirit – verse 6 – “and the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace.”  I mean it’s a completely different pathology. Think of Enoch. But someday, when – when you die, your spirit goes to heaven, absent from the body, present with the Lord, far better to depart and be with Christ. We’re not saying that. And, as the third person of the Holy Trinity, He is a person. That’s the way it is. They can’t please God.

As far as we are concerned as believers, we need to get beyond the material expressions of divine power, which I have been speaking about, power to create, power to render the unique supernatural work of certain men on earth, power to pick up prophets and move them somewhere else, and go inside and understand that the great creative power of the ruach is working in the lives of men. Acts 5:3 tells us that it is possible to lie to Him and Acts 7:51 tells us it is possible to resist Him. There is a blasphemy of the Holy Spirit that goes on all the time.

The idea here is that through His Spirit indwelling His people, God wants there to be unity in His body. In ancient Israel, the old covenant day, the Holy Spirit came upon kings and priests and prophets in a unique way. Others walk in the Spirit, that’s their behavior, they mind the things of the Spirit, that’s how they think, and they enjoy life and peace. Sermons are not speeches.

With those before His coming on Pentecost, He was with them, now He is in us. God only recognizes two kinds of people:  those who walk according to the flesh and those who walk according to the Spirit.
