<< VICTORIOUS CHRISTIAN LIVING >>

Lesson 5:
"Part 4: Sensitivity"
(Romans 6:16-22)

Victorious Christian Living =
Walking by faith in the promises of God as evidenced by the production of godly fruit that brings God glory. The opposite of which is being driven by sinful, fleshly desires that debilitate us.

If Jesus secured the victory (OVER SIN), why is it so elusive personally?
• We love our excuses.
• We don't see sin like God does.
• We fight alone.
• We want God's gift, but not Him.
Living victoriously involves...
4. Enhancing, not nullifying, our sensitivity (to God's presence & will).

Nullify = to cancel out, to make of no use
Three keys to living victoriously are understanding…
1. Our ability to obey

If someone with skills, knowledge, and powers exceeding our own is willing and able 24/7 to help us live in victory over sin shouldn't we accept it?

A godly life is the result of communing with the living God moment by moment and day by day. It occurs when we live in His presence and for His glory.

"Walk" (vs.16 & 25) (Present Imperative Active tense) =
A command that requires ongoing, continual action. Because it is a command, not a suggestion, to disobey is a sin.

Unless we choose to "Walk" in the Spirit we will by default fulfill the lusts of the flesh.

It is hard for our enemy to score if our team always has the ball!
