CONQUERING THE FLESH 1

Rom 8:12-14

12 Therefore, dear brothers and sisters,* you have no obligation to do what your sinful nature urges you to do. 13 For if you live by its dictates, you will die. But if through the power of the Spirit you put to death the deeds of your sinful nature,* you will live. 1

NLT

Sitting across the table from Pastor Seth was Stacy holding a sheet of paper that contained a list of the sins she’d found impossible to conquer. With tears she said ‘I really love God, but I find myself falling each time I face these temptations’. Pastor Seth did not even bother to know the content of the paper before stating that her problem was faithlessness; that she had never totally believed she could overcome those temptations. To this she concurred…

Anyone who does not have the new life is under the obligation to live according to the flesh. A lot of times, this obligation appear to arise within us who have now been born again. We are told in today’s text that this (the flesh) can be put to death by the power of the spirit. One of the greatest manifestations of this power is faith (see 1John 5:14).

God’s word says you can do it, so you believe and accept that you can do it- this is faith.

Go into today knowing that you have the power to conquer sin and all the powers of the devil (see Luke 10:19).

Prayer: thank you father because I have power over every sin and fear in my life, and your Holy Spirit empowers me to do all that you want me to do. I pray I will never forget this, in Jesus name. Amen
