Give Up On Your Flesh

The main reason we fall into sin and get trapped in temptations is because we listen to our flesh.  Our flesh has the ability to make us sin against God.

When we accept Jesus as our Lord and personal savior our old selves are gone. We have become a new creature in Christ Jesus.

Jesus has paid for our sins so our old selves are gone and we have become new. We must be willing to let go our old selves and habits.

Rebuke the spirit of temptation when they come to our mind. Cast away thoughts that are not of Christ.

We must not allow negative thoughts and ideas to dwell in our mind. When thought of lust, gambling, wickedness, hatred comes to our mind let us cast them away.

So be willing to set yourself free and fight the temptation with the help of the Holy Spirit.
