Happy Monday everyone, 

It's February already, this year is going pretty fast. Kindly take 5 minutes to read the post below, also share it with your friends, both believers and non believers, you never know how it would minister to them. The below post was written by Twale and I.

I want to serve God through Jesus Christ (who is the only way to heaven) but I am pulled by influences of sin .i.e. Gossip, lies, silly thought, drinking, unforgiveness, betrayal, lust, fornication, adultery, condemning others, being jealous and envious of others, malice, inappropriate dressing, not having time to pray, not having time to tell people about Christ.

When does the battle begin?

The moment your feet hit the floor!  Paul writes, ‘The moment I decide to do good, sin is there to trip me up. I truly delight in God’s commands, but...not all of me joins in that delight...’ (Romans 7:21).  

What’s happening? 

Your flesh (human nature) is at war with your spirit, seducing you into relaxing your defences. And the moment you do, it’ll ‘nail you.’ It will whisper, ‘Go ahead, it’s no big deal; everybody does it. Who’ll know anyway?’

Learn to identify that voice before it becomes a thought entertained, a deed done, a habit formed and a character ruined. Your new birth doesn’t do away with your old nature; it just brings it into sharp contrast. You may be redeemed but you still live in a carnal body. 

If you try to fight the flesh in the power of the flesh, you’ll just end up fighting yourself.

What’s the answer?

‘Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh’
(Galatians 5:16).

How do you do that?
Read the Bible everyday. Start with a daily plan of studying different characters in the Bible.  If you are struggling to motivate yourself to study a Bible Character on a daily basis, use a daily Christian devotional.  "But from there you will search again for the Lord  your God. And if you search for him with all your heart and soul, you will find him." (Deuteronomy 4:29)

Obeying God’s Word; instead of doing what comes naturally to you. If you ‘blow it’ occasionally, don’t get discouraged, keep moving ahead.  "A righteous person may fall seven times, but he gets up again. However, in a disaster wicked people fall." (Proverbs 24:16)

Make new Christian friends and new companions. "Don't let anyone deceive you. Associating with bad people will ruin decent people."  (1 Corinthians 15:33)

Take out time to pray. "One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up." (Luke 18:1)

Set new priorities. "Suppose you want to build a tower. You would first sit down and figure out what it costs. Then you would see if you have enough money to finish it." (Luke 14:28)  

Ask for the help of the Holy Spirit. "The helper whom I will send to you from the Father will come. This helper, the Spirit of Truth who comes from the Father, will declare the truth about me." (John 15:26)

Have a lovely week. See you next week Monday for another inspirational post.

  1. Beautiful but true.
    The battle btw the flesh n d spirit is real n we must pay attention to it by taking a stand for Jesus if it is him we are resolved to follow.

    1. Thank you anonymous for your comment. The keywords 'taking a stand for Jesus' even when it seems really difficult. When we take a stand for Jesus, it shows that we love Him and we strive to love Him more. I tend to guide myself with this statement: 'Dare to be different for God'.
