Free From the Flesh

Foundation Romans 8:2 (Amplified Bible)

2 "For the law of the Spirit of life [which is] in Christ Jesus [the law of our new being] has freed me from the law of sin and of death."


When the Holy Spirit is ignored or rejected, religious people are forced to either do their own creating or fossilize completely. Unfortunately many individuals and churches accept fossilization as the will of God and are content to rest on their laurels like an old dogmatic mattress. Others try to embrace the modern, and imitate the activities of the world with the mistaken idea that they are being creative. Yet even though they seek to dwell in the glass houses of fad, their mere imitations lack the qualities of eternity-holiness and spiritual dignity...In other words the Holy Spirit is not there.

It is hard to imagine a more painful disillusionment than to come to the judgement seat of Christ and find that we have wasted most of our earthly lives striving after flesh and starving the Holy Spirit. It is by the cross of Jesus...That ends the bondage of flesh!

Pray and meditate always!
