Galatians 5:19-21 (KJV) “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.”
Beloved in Christ I am most passionate about speaking on the lust of the flesh because it seems to be the downfall of most of us in the Lord’s Church.
Reading from the passage above, you probably have seen where you fall short and where your short-lived pleasure is. It is human nature to be tempted in these areas but when you allow The Spirit of God to direct you, you will find strength not to satisfy these wordly needs for what the Spirit wants is opposed to what our human nature wants. The two are enemies (as said in Galatians 5:17)
The Word of God has made it clear to us in Galatians 5:21 that, those who satisfy their desires of the flesh will not possess the Kingdom of God. Always remember God is not a liar and He will not allow us to be tempted beyond what we can bear (1 Corinthians 10:13). When we permit His spirit to lead us, then His grace will always be sufficient upon us.
This morning let The Spirit of God speak to you and strengthen your knees to withstand temptation. He has given you all you need to conquer.
Blessings and love!
