Open Heaven 15 November 2021 TOPIC: The Flesh

MEMORISE: But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. – 1 Corinthians 9:27

READ: 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 (KJV)

24 Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

26 I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:

27 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

BIBLE IN ONE : Isaiah 56-61

Open Heaven 15 November 2021 MESSAGE:

One of the three expressways to sin is the flesh, which describes the sinful nature of the fallen man. The works of the flesh are listed in Galatians 5:19-20:

“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”

Galatians 5:17 says that the flesh lusts against the Spirit. We must be careful not to fulfil the lusts of the flesh as Apostle warned in Galatians 5:16, knowing fully well that the flesh would typically want to behave sinfully. He himself lamented thus:

“O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death?” – Romans 7:24

To the glory of God, he found a solution to this problem as he wrote in 1 Corinthians 9:27:

“But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.”

Like Apostle Paul, we too can overcome the negative influence of the flesh by accepting Christ as our personal Lord and Saviour and committing to our lives to His pleasure.

Our annual New Year resolutions to a godly life cannot help us in this regard. Only with the help of the Holy Spirit can any man overcome the flesh. This is why Jesus is calling everyone, saying:

“Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.” – Matthew 11:28

As we cry out to the Lord for help to for Him and Him alone, bringing our flesh into submission, the Holy Spirit will help us and we also would be able to say, like Apostle Paul in 2 Timothy 4:7:

“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:”

May the Lord give us victory over the flesh, in Jesus’ name.

Open Heaven 15 November 2021 PRAYER POINT:
