Joy in the Journey

Pursuing the Presence and Power of the Spirit
Dan Juster spoke on the above topic during his two time slots at the Tikkun Conference. Dan mentioned that our lives can be viewed as a sandwich. Between the times of our born again experience and our death and resurrection we are to be occupied with pursuing the presence and power of the Holy Spirit.

Dan mentioned that we are not to live in chapter 7 of the book of Romans (Romans 7 describes the person who has not come into the reality of the resurrection), but we are to live in Romans 8 (Romans 8 describes the person living in the presence and power of the Holy Spirit).
Romans 6 tells us that the old man has been crucified through our identification with Messiah's death. Through our identification with Messiah's resurrection we are raised in newness of life and power. What is left of the old man is a mere imprint of him to tempt me. The real me; my truest identity in Messiah, is righteousness in my inner being that desires to serve God.

How do we live this out in practical reality? We daily (sometimes momentarily) reckon; consider ourselves dead to sin and the tempting influences of this world by adding (calculating) up the facts of Romans 6:1-10 (our identification with Yeshua's death and resurrection).

This means practically that when we are tempted we don't identify with the particular sin and say, for example, "Well, that's just who I am, I'll never change." By doing this we sow seed into our old man. Rather, when we are tempted with lust, for example, we respond, "That's not who I am! I have a pure mind and in my deepest being I am a person who dwells in purity." By doing this we are sowing seed into our new man. We can call this "responsible disassociation."

It is the Holy Spirit who connects us to this meaning of being dead to sin and alive to God. We no longer have to give in to sin.

Have a great summer, Ned
