The Cure For Being Human!

“Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.” (Romans 8:12-13, NIV)

Paul says that part of God’s purpose for, and part of making sense of our lives, is for us to live a life in which Christ is the main focus. If we live according to our humanly desires and we allow our obsessions and addictions (sins) to control us, we will fail miserably. But, if we accept the Holy Spirit into our hearts and into our minds, we will be infused with the power to act upon our humanly, sinful desires in a way that will allow us to defeat them. We will never be completely “cured” of being human, but we will find greater peace and comfort in all aspects of our lives. We will begin to find the true peace that can only be found in Christ Jesus!

Call upon the Holy Spirit this Friday to help you “put to death the misdeeds of your body”! Enjoy your weekend, “Working for Christ”!
