Application for Fighter Verse For May 19 and 20

===

Galatians 5:24-25

And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit.

===
‘Crucified the flesh’ – that’s pretty extreme vocabulary, don’t you think? But do we live like it?

Do we keep in step with the spirit?

No – sometimes we clearly don’t. That’s why we need sanctification. And part of that processes is recognition: Your sinful passions and desires have been crucified.

Maybe I should say that again, with an exclamation point – Your sinful passions and desires have been crucified!

You aren’t the same person who is just trying to do better now that you are saved. God has miraculously killed your sinful flesh. You are no longer paralyzingly drawn to sins that will cause your destruction.

Take notice, take heart and take joy. And take the path laid out for you by God’s Holy Spirit.
