Newness of Life - Pt 4
May 21, 2017

Romans 6:4 (NASB)

Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.

Galatians 5:16(NASB)

But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.

  • Walk (peripateo) – the moment by moment dependence upon the Holy Spirit in the daily life of a Believer.

Galatians 5:25 (NASB)

If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit

  • Walk (stoicheo) – to follow step by step.  To follow according to a specific pattern.  


Rebound and Recovery  

1 John 1:5-9 (ESV)

5 This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

6 If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.

7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.

8 If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.


Ephesians 5:8-9 (ESV)

8 for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light
9 (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true),


Ephesians 5:11 (ESV)

Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.


1 Thess. 5:5 (ESV)

For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness.

1 John 2:9-11 (ESV)

9 Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness.

10 Whoever loves his brother abides in the light, and in him there is no cause for stumbling.

11 But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes.



Philippians 1:6 (ESV)

And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.


Philippians 1:6 (NLT)

And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.


Faith Rest

2 Cor. 5:7 (KJV)

(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)


Colossians 3:16 (KJV)

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.



Step One

Mix the Promises of God with Faith.

  • The Promises of God must be more real to you than your Circumstances.

Step Two

Reason through the Promise.

  • Emotion is the consequence of what you are believing in your soul.

Step Three

Rest in the Results.

  • Hebrews 11:17-19 (NKJV)

    17 By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,

    18 of whom it was said, “In Isaac your seed shall be called,”

    19 concluding that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead, from which he also received him in a figurative sense.
