"We are debtors..."
Text: Romans 8:12
THE CONCEPT OF INDEBTEDNESS
The apostle Paul boldly and firmly declared how he saw himself as one indebted to God.
“I am a debtor both to Greek and barbarians,
both to wise and to unwise.”
In the following text he explains just why all believers should feel the same sense of indebtedness to God.
“Therefore, brethren, we are debtors not to the flesh-
not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh,
For if you live according to the flesh you will die;
but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body,
you will live.”
WE ARE NOT DEBTORS TO THE FLESH
This must be declared up front, bold and clear!
