Thus he ends with a note of confidence. Having admitted the conflict between the
flesh and the spirit, which continues while we are in this present body, we are assured
that in the sight of God, the flesh is dead and we share the resurrection life with Christ.
Our standing in Christ is therefore secure. Our feelings must be ignored for the work
of Christ is complete. We are saved by grace through faith and our salvation is the gift of
God (Eph. 2: 8). And should we be worried about material things we should see what
Paul writes in Phil. 4: 10-14. May we say with Paul, "I can do all things through Christ
Who enables me".
May our faith be strong and let us thank God for our full and free salvation. May we
be strengthened so that we enjoy life in the spirit, being led by the Spirit of God day by
day (Rom. 8: 14).
