But here is what I gleaned from today's study time. I need to crucify my flesh, with it's passions and desires. And this is the evidence that I belong to Christ. It's from Galatians 5:15-26
So what does that mean? It means that when I have passions that are of a sinful nature, I nail them to a cross so that they will die. There is a list of the passions and desires of the flesh. It's somewhat disconcerting the things that are on that list. It goes like this:
- sexual immorality
- fits of rage
- selfish ambition
I need the Spirit in my to crucify the flesh in me. I need to willingly submit to that. I need to be on my knees begging for God to create in me a clean heart. I need crucified flesh.
