THEME: Oh! Carnal Mind.
“And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.”
“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”
As humans, we all have our general and individual desire and aspirations in life, irrespective of our class or status. Well, we often go all out, with everything within our capacity to achieve this singular glory of ours.
Meanwhile, not minding what it will take to achieve the set task, goal or the consequence of our actions. For, when we are filled with the decision to fulfil the lust of the flesh, at this point, the spirit man is in comatose or silent.
However, our today’s text highlight some of the work of the flesh, such as: _Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like._
Furthermore, a mind filled with the above, is a carnal mind, an enemy of divine order. A mind sold into reprobate, doing what is not convenient. Oh! Carnal mind, filled with bodily gratification and pleasure. It kicks against divine instruction in all strata. Beloved, how is your mind? And how is my mind? Is the content of our hearts and minds, in line with God’s standard? Do check it out.
In conclusion, Apostle Paul in Galatians 5:16 declared: *”This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.”* As humans, there is no way, flesh will not strike, but when we walk in the spirit, we will not fulfill the lust of the flesh, as admonished by Paul. Therefore, let’s cross examine our lives daily, and we shall not be judged at last in heaven in Jesus name. Amen.
God bless you.
*Jesus is coming soon.*
I will not be giving to a reprobate mind.
Father, help me to daily cross examine my heart and mind in the light of your word. And give me grace, to subdue the work of flesh in my life in Jesus name. Amen.
