Romans continues its theme of reminding believers about our new life found in Christ. However, Paul adds another layer – The Holy Spirit. Our salvation is orchestrated by the Father, carried out by the son, and empowered by the Holy Spirit. This passage describes how the Holy Spirit walks side by side with us as we live out our new life in Christ. This should be a great comfort to the struggling Christian as we pursue a life that is continually transformed into the likeness of Christ.

As Christians we are often quick to let others know that we believe and affirm that the Holy Spirit is God and that the Holy Spirit Indwells our lives but when others look at our lives they see none of the life altering evidence of spirit filled life. We look just like everyone else…and I believe that this is largely impart to the fact that we have simply not truly learned how to live a life being constantly filled with the Holy Spirit.

STOP getting drunk with ungodly ‘spirits’. with drunkenness comes asotia = debauchery. (also translated as excess, riot, dissipation) All these give the idea of profligate or licentious living that is wasteful.
