A Spiritual Revolution

Experience a spiritual revolution. Deal with your flesh.

“And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness” – Romans 6:18

The bible has quite a bit to say to us about the flesh. And just to get to the point, it’s not good. I’m reminded of one particular statement as I am writing this, “within my flesh, no good thing dwells.” Boy how true. I hope you have come to the same conclusion.

It’s an interesting comparison when you look at the flesh and the Spirit but it boils down to this if you desire your spiritual revolution. The flesh must be crucified.

If left to rule you, your flesh will keep you from everything God has pre-ordained for you to know, have, and walk in. It is a terrifying thought when you think of all the missed blessings and opportunities God had waiting for you to know. Seek instead a spiritual revolution by crucifying the flesh with its passions and desires and seek the leading of the Holy Spirit. Yes, even when this goes against all the feelings you have.

If you wish a spiritual revolution make this your prayer: Lord help me to crucify my flesh. Help me Holy Spirit to live, walk. and bear the life-giving fruit of your Spirit. Help me to remember and declare often; it is not by might, nor by power, but it is by your Spirit.

Today I crucify the flesh and I’m living in the overflowing of the Holy Spirit. AMEN
