I. Christological Basis ( Rom. 8:9, Gal. 4:6; Phil. 1:19)

-It means that the Pneumatology of Paul is Christologically founded (the Spirit is the Spirit of Christ)

-Only through the Holy Spirit that a person can say or acknowledge that “Jesus is Lord” (1 Cor. 12-13)

-The Spirit makes it possible for us to know and recognize Christ.

In Rom 8, Paul contrast two mutually-exclusive modes of being: “in the Spirit” (en pneumati) and “in the flesh” (en sarki). To be “in the Spirit” results from being indwelt by the Spirit: “You are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, so long as the Spirit of God dwells in you (oikei en humin)”(8:9a).

To be in dwelt by the Spirit of God appears to be synonymous with “to have [the] Spirit of Christ” (pneuma christou echein)

slide4
The phrase “if Christ is in you” (ei de christos en humin)
  • So being indwelt by the Spirit of God, having the Spirit of Christ and Christ’s being in a believer all mean the same thing.

II. Eschatological Dimensions ( 1 Cor. 6:9-11)

For Paul, the Spirit of new age has already broken into old.

Paul’s refer to the Spirit as an arrabon, a down payment of the glory to come (2 Cor. 1:22; Eph. 1:13-14) and as a first installment of the believer’s inheritance in the kingdom of God (Rom. 8:15-17,14:17; 1 Cor. 6:9-11; Gal. 4:6-7)

In addition to the eschatological demesion, a moral transformation by means of the Spirit to renounce the flesh.

19Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality,
  •  20idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions,
  •  21envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these

If he or she walks in the Spirit, a person does not carry out the “desire of the flesh” (epithumia sarkos), which is a way of describing the fundamental attitude of defiance to God (5:16).
