Thesis:Applying the resurrection power of the Spirit to the deeds of the body is not a "once-for-all" process most of the time.

Introduction:In our study last week we focused upon the fact that Paul warned us that if we are living according to the flesh we are going to die. Then we shifted gears and put our focus upon the promise that if we "put to death the deeds of the body, we will live." Without dispute, the issue of putting to death the deeds of the body is both a preceding, and a necessary, aspect of living. And, without dispute, Paul's concept of methodology is "Spiritual"; man is inherently incapable of putting to death the deeds of his body so that it will not be done except by the Spirit.

That study raised a very serious question: How do we apply the resurrection power of the Spirit to any, and all, "deeds of the body" so that we may live? It is to this question that we are going to turn this evening.
