Make The Flesh Your Slave

1 Corinthians 9:27 (NET) Instead I subdue my body and make it my slave, so that after preaching to others I myself will not be disqualified.

Dare was an Evangelist who preached everywhere, but he was not very careful with the way he lived. He continued to ignore the fact that his flesh was now controlling him until one day he fell into a sin that caused him great scandal. Everyone was shocked, and people started doubting the authenticity of his ministry.

Apostle Paul understood that he needed to subdue his body and make it his slave. He understood that what could make him disqualified is if he walked in the flesh.

Sin is in the body (flesh), but righteousness is in your spirit. You have to choose the one you will walk in, whether the flesh or the spirit.

As far as we are in this body of flesh, we have to crucify it daily and never let it control us (see Luke 9:23). The flesh will always try to control us, but it is our responsibility to make it our slave. We must always say 'no' to the flesh and never get tired of saying so. We know that in the fullness of time, God will give us new bodies of righteousness and glory. While we wait for this to happen, do not be tired of resisting the flesh and walking in the Spirit. Most of our spiritual warfare is against the flesh. If this war is won, there is no devil that can stop us.

Go into today remembering that walking in the flesh produces spiritual death, it can cause even the greatest preacher to be disqualified. Walking in the spirit produces life and peace. It is the remedy for walking in the flesh.

Thank the Lord for the grace to walk in the spirit.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
