2 Corinthians 3:9

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 9 For if the ministry of condemnation is glorious,2 how much more does the ministry of righteousness abound in glory. [The Ministry of Condemnation is the Spirit condemning the sins in you, commanding your repentance; and with your repentance, then the Spirit destroys the sins in your body, circumcising your heart. When you have, (by the Spirit), mortified the sins in your body, then you receive the Ministry of Righteousness, which is the learning of how to walk and speak righteously, walking by the Light of Life, walking after the Spirit.]

Romans 8:1,2

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.1 [To walk after the Spirit is to be led by the Spirit in thoughts, words, and deeds. If you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Gal 5:18. To walk after the flesh is to walk according to your carnal mind and evil heart, before it has been cleansed and purified; until then you are not in Christ Jesus because your are still walking in the flesh — in your lusts, desires, affections, pleasures, pride, anger, vanity, fear, worries, plans, etc. Anyone who claims to be in Christ when they are not crucified is taking His name in vain; or doing anything while stating you do it in His name or in the name of Jesus is also taking His name in vain.]

 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.2 [When crucified, we experience the Ministry of Righteousness, which is the learning of how to walk and speak righteously, walking by the Light of Life, walking after the Spirit. You are not free from the law of sin and death until you have received the fruit of the Spirit, walking in love, fulfilling the law, your sinful nature destroyed by Christ, your heart circumcised by Christ, and you crucified on the inward cross of self-denial.]
