This sermon comes from Romans 8:12-25 and takes a look at the role of the Spirit in the development of our relationship with God.  In Eugene Peterson's words, "we live lives of congruence."  In other words, our actions match our interiority.  The way we develop this interior is through the influence of the Spirit.
