We Must Walk By The Spirit To Be Free

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.

Romans 8:1 (NKJV)

Many of us know about there being no condemnation as a follower of Jesus, but we forget that we have to walk by the Spirit.  Here in the Greek Spirit is pneuma, the capitalization of Spirit by the translators of the NKJV translation of the Bible indicates that we think pneuma here is the Holy Spirit.

We agree with that thinking, but at the same time, we are believers should be ‘spiritual’.  We should walk by the Spirit which is our human spirit in tune with the Holy Spirit.  Here you can see pneuma as both the Holy Spirit and your human spirit in union with the Spirit of God.  We must walk by faith, we must walk by the Spirit.  We must walk by our spirit in tune with His Spirit to be free from condemnation.
