“That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;Philippians 3:10
It ain’t easy to die!
That’s one of the reasons why the battle raging between our sinful weak flesh and our willing spirit is so fierce and exhausting! We want what the Lord is freely offering but our flesh pulls us here and there- in every direction except along the narrow path!
How can we tame this flesh! How can we gather the strength and courage to keep fighting to the death?
Only through faithful prayerful perseverance with faces set like flint towards Christ and His way! He died for us!
If it had only been me; if it had only been you- He would have still made that agonizing journey to the cross of Calvary! That is love manifest in the flesh through an obedient spirit!
That is the same spirit God wishes to impart to us! It is the only one that can set us free from our bondage to sin in the flesh!
For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. Romans 8:13
You can die!
You can do it and so can I!
It is the only way we can truly live!!!
