2 Corinthians 5:14-15 (NET) For the love of Christ controls us, since we have concluded this, that Christ died for all; therefore all have died. And he died for all so that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised.

Before Nathan became a disciple of the Lord Jesus, he used to lie, steal and cheat. He was not an honest man and he knew it. He had a terrible reputation even though he was a churchgoer. It wasn't that Nathan was not a believer, it was just that he did not abide in the Lord. He lived his life as though he was the owner of his life; he lived to please himself. This wasn't entirely his fault. He did not know any better. All the sermons he ever heard were centered on how to enrich his life and get more to please himself.

As Nathan began to listen to a different set of sermons, his life was now controlled by the love of God, and he now found that the power of God was present in his life to conquer the works of the flesh.

Many are controlled by the love of money and the love of self, and no matter how much they try, they would find that they are not able to walk in the power of God that gives them perpetual victory over the works of the flesh. He was no longer a slave to sin.

Those who are controlled by the love of God, who live to please God and not themselves, will have the power to walk above the works of the flesh.

Go into today remembering that the way to overcome the power of the flesh is to die to self and start living to please God. The way to love God is to live to please Him.
