Spiritual Circmcision (Part 1): You are not Your Flesh


For by one Spirit are we all baptised into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have all been made to drink into one Spirit.

1 Corinthians 12:13

For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
For as many of you as have been baptised into Christ have put on Christ.

Galatians 3:26-27

But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

1 Corinthians 6:17

And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.

Colossians 2:10-12

The centre of your person is your spirit.

When you believed the Gospel of Christ [1 Corinthians 12:13], your spirit was baptised into Christ [1 Corinthians 15:3-4, Galatians 3:26-27].

Your spirit was made in union with Christ [1 Corinthians 6:17]. You have a spiritual union with Christ.

The union between your spirit and Christ, was made on the cross.

Your spirit died with Christ and was raised with Christ [Colossians 2:12].

When you died with Christ, you died to the sin in your flesh [Romans 6:2-3].

Therefore, you died to your sinful flesh [Colossians 2:11] and effectively, your sinful flesh was killed to you [Romans 8:3]: your body of sin has been destroyed [Romans 6:6].

Therefore, any acts of sin done in your sinful flesh are no longer accredited to your account by God [Romans 7:17, 20].

Consequently, you can no longer sin before God [Ephesians 1:4] and God no longer finds you guilty of anything [Romans 8:1].

When you believed the Gospel of Christ, God gave you Christ’s righteousness [Romans 8:3-4, 2 Corinthians 5:21].

When God killed your sinful flesh to you [Romans 8:3], this gift of righteousness was sealed [Romans 4:11].

Therefore, you remain permanently righteous before God [Romans 5:1], because God gave you Christ’s righteousness and that righteousness is sealed [Romans 8:3-4].
