    Are you obeying your flesh more than you are obeying the Spirit? Be careful if you are!

    Romans 6:12-16 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

    Romans 8:5-8 5For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.

    Galatians 6:7-8 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

    I'd say it a pretty sure thing that almost all of the spoiled American christians are into thier flesh most of the time. It's a good thing that God does not reward us according to our sin.

Sorry about that, I didn't notice that I typed Spirt instead of Spirit. Thanks for pointing that out Johnv [​IMG] (I tried fixing it, but it said my time to edit the message had been elasped so if one of the moderators could do that for me. Thanks.)
