No Longer Under a Tutor

As part of our salvation, we have been given a renewed mind (Romans 12:2), one that is not corrupted by our sin nature. This is a mind that can understand the things of the Spirit (1 Corinthians 2:14-16). Therefore, we walk by the Spirit, not by law or the flesh (Galatians 5:16, 25). The Spirit is the one teaching us how to properly abide in Christ (1 John 2:27) and therefore live a life that shows a proper opinion of God through our actions, not words. We are not adopted children, we are legitimate children and should act as such in the midst of a corrupt and perverted generation, training our sensed to know what is proper and what is wrong so that our live are a luminary to those around us.
