Alive in Christ
Romans 8:10 (KJB) And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
Simply put- because Jesus Christ is alive in the spirit of those who possess a personal relationship with God- the power of sin is dead. Therefore, the man and woman of God can no longer give an excuse for their choice to sin because the supernatural power and presence of God cannot live in the presence of sin.
Sin lives in the flesh.
God lives in the Spirit.
Man either is controlled by the presence of God alive in his heart. Or he is controlled by his sin nature in his flesh.
Man cannot be controlled by both natures- for one is dead and the other is alive.
The presence of God always conveys life in the spirit. New spiritual life found inside a personal relationship with God. The presence of evil at work in the flesh always ushers in death.
