Today’s devotion is based on Romans 8:7,8 “The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God.”
The Bible teaches a rather uncomfortable truth. It says that you and I are sinners. We’ll continue to struggle with our sinful flesh on this side of heaven. It’s a given. Without the Spirit’s help, our mind “does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so.” But Jesus can help us, and he does; Perfectly. He has conquered our sin and crushed our condemnation forever. Trust him!
Please pray with me: Dear Jesus, thank you for the Holy Spirit, for without the Spirit’s power, I would not have the strength to fight against the desire of my sinful flesh. In your precious name, I pray. Amen.
