    Romans 8:4 (NASB)
    so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    There is a truth being put forth in this above scripture as to the how of fulfilling the requirement of the Law of God in one’s life... This is the way, as scripture puts forth, that one can consistently fulfill that law in life.... And that is, to walk by the Spirit and not by the flesh....

    So then it would be of crucial importance to understand and know exactly what is meant and being put forth in the above truth...

    What is walking according to the flesh?

    What is walking according to the Spirit?

    Walking according to the flesh, is self doing the doing.... Anything that self can do, is in the flesh...

    If that is true, than something else other than self effort is available to man to walk according to, for scripture puts this forth as truth... This would have to be available to all at all times... At a moment’s notice, full strength, never failing... This sounds like music to the heart that would want to walk according to it... No kind-er or pleasant-er words could be spoken if one could just see what is meant or couched in these words of truth...

    ~Walking by the Spirit is walking by faith... It is that simple, it is that real, it is that easy..~

    Faith that God will fulfill His promise of manifesting righteousness in life...

    This hope, this heart, this becoming one’s all and all, once seen as the necessity it is is the walk of all walks...

    For this walk of faith, this walk, of, by, and in faith, is the walk, of, by and in the Spirit...

    For the just shall live by faith.... The just shall live by the Spirit of Christ manifesting Himself in and through the believing soul...

    But this can and will only be manifested according to the hearts desire after it... And this is what God is working in each and every heart that is His .... A willingness to have more of Him and less of self....

    Be blessed all who are in a miserable state concerning themselves, for this is God’s work of drawing one deeper into Himself ... That one’s hope might not be in anything but in God Himself, so He might manifest the works of the law in and through life... i.e.; which is the manifestation of righteousness in life...

    On to Him be our all...

    The righteous requirement of the law is obedience and the Spirit leads us to fulfill this requirement by leading us to obey the law (Ezekiel 36:26-27). In Romans 8:4-7, those who walk in the Spirit are contrasted with those who have minds set on the flesh who refuse to submit to God's law. In Galatians 5:19-22, everything listed as works of the flesh that are against the Spirit are also against God's law, while all of the fruits of the Spirit are in accordance with it, so walking in the flesh does not refer to self-effort, but to living in disobedience to God's law while walking the Spirit it living in obedience to it. In Matthew 23:23, Jesus said that faith is one of the weightier matters of God's law, so obedience to it is also how we express our faith in Him to rightly guide us.

    The righteous requirement of the law is to love God and our neighbor.
