There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.(Romans 8:1-8) NKJV
We (that’s me and the Holy spirit) find a clear statement of the mode of action of gravity, as it pertains to the plan of redemption and salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, in Romans chapter 8.
This is where the Apostle Paul explains the connection between being spiritual and alive vs. being carnal and dead. We’ll use the terminology of our theory of gravity to paraphrase the passage above.
Even though this is about the difference between being dead, before salvation, and being alive, after salvation, there’s clear application in the life of the Christian as to how we should walk (conduct ourselves) in a way that enhances and deepens our fellowship with God through the power of the Holy Spirit.
