25 I thank [eucharisteo] God [theos] through [dia] Jesus [Iesous] Christ [Christos] our [hemon] Lord [kurios]. So then [ara][oun] with the mind [nous] I [ego] myself [autos] serve [men][douleuo] the law [nomos] of God [theos]; but [de] with the flesh [sarx] the law [nomos] of sin [hamartia]. KJV-Interlinear
25 Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin. ESV
We already know, that we are made up of body and soul. And our third component is the spirit, which we acquire instantly at the moment we believe in Christ. We call that acquisition of the human spirit, being born again.
We also know from the study of Romans, that the body that we are born with is infected with something which we call the sin nature. And that sin nature has a powerful effect and influence over our body, which overflows into the influence of our mind.
If we don’t have something else counteracting that influence, then we’re in total slavery and helplessness, and subject to the power of the sin nature within us.
However, Bible doctrine, provides that counteracting influence.
We have to learn Bible doctrine, in order to possess the ability to counteract the influence of the sin nature.
Therefore, by learning Bible doctrine, and advancing in our spiritual life, then we are able to serve God, through our mind, or through what we know because of Bible doctrine learned.
At the same time in this life, in this world, our physical body is still subject to the influence of the sin nature. And that influence is unyielding and continues moment by moment day and night, throughout our entire life.
Therefore, we have to be on the alert, and on our guard, so that the sin nature will not overcome and overwhelm us, and sweep us back into the dark ages, as it were.
Thus, the need for a daily Bible study, in order to learn Bible doctrine, but more important, in order to stay within the sphere of the spiritual life, so as to counteract the sphere of the sin nature life.
The environment of the spiritual life, which is obtained through confession of sin to God the Father, provides the environment of safety and security, and a place where the sin nature cannot get to you.
Learning Bible doctrine, is much, much more than merely learning Bible stories. Learning Bible doctrine, and living in the spiritual sphere, which we call fellowship, provides you with an environment for growth and fulfillment, not to mention a place of safety.
Jesus Christ is God. Jesus Christ is the written word of God. He has magnified His word above His name, which simply means, that learning Bible doctrine is our highest priority, and our means of advancing in fulfilling our life, and completing our relationship with God through Christ.
Study [by instruction],
to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]
a workman [student]
that need not be ashamed [ignorant],
rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]
the word of truth [Bible doctrine].
If you can dream and not make dreams your master,
If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,
If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,
If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,
Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.
These studies, are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, that is easily accessible, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.
And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.
To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.
The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.
But you have to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.
