Hello, I'm David Jeremiah. Today, I am taking you back to your school days. Do you remember having an essay assignment to compare and contrast two different people or views or periods of history? We gain a better picture of two things when we can compare and contrast them with each other. And that's what Paul does in verses 5 through 11 of Romans chapter 8, a chapter of the Bible that can change your life. We're on the second message of a series called "Romans VIII: The Greatest Chapter in the Bible".
And today, we'll follow Paul as he compares and contrasts the flesh, our old human nature, with the spirit, our new life empowered by the Holy Spirit. I hope you'll join me for today's message as we explore the perils of the flesh contrasted with the power of the spirit in "The Spirit and the Flesh," here on "Turning Point".
