How many of us want our way? But God’s way is better, it is humbling, it is a path of humility – but it is a path of being more like Christ, now that is a path I choose to be on. There is no equivocation in “crucify the flesh”, is there? The flesh is a petulant, spoiled rotten, self centered 3 year old. After all the Lord has done to make a new creation, why would I want to cling to a brat when I can cling to the Lord instead? ~AGM†
This lesson is about an hour long. Settle in…tell your brat to shut up and listen. Being disciplined is a fruit of the Spirit. 😉
What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are now ashamed of? Those things result in death!
The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice.
There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.
