Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

September 25, 2011 (mortification of the flesh)

mortification of the flesh

Impure thoughts may grow like fungus within our heart
if we not take care to be the gardener of those plants
we allow to grow there.

“We must learn where our personal weaknesses lie.
Once they are identified,
we must be ruthless in dealing with them.
Earlier generations called this
the 'mortification of the flesh', that is,
pronouncing the death sentence upon sin
and putting that sentence into daily effect
by killing all that sets itself
against God’s purpose in our lives.”
- Alistair Begg
