CARNALITY vs SPIRITUALITYSeptember 10, 2020
Daily Prayer for September 10th, 2020 Â Â Â
Good morning, Godâ€”thank you!! đź™‚
Nowhere in your word (the Holy Bible) says that a Christian in this life will be completely perfectâ€”we who are free from all sin. As long as I live on this earth, I will struggle with fault. We have been made righteous through Jesusâ€™ perfect blood, not our own. That is why I keep close to you. I count onÂ youÂ toÂ helpÂ lead me away from temptation and harm. I desire to follow you and walk in your love. Intellectually, and with morals and decency, I will regretfully sin again. Being that my fellowship with you is off, my relationship with you is not. Just because I sin doesnâ€™t mean I am no longer your child. That is when you want me to look to you more closely. Live by the Spirit and not be gratified by the desires of my flesh. The carnal mind creates eternal war. Thank you for your grace and forgiveness if I do sin, Fatherâ€”for Jesus Christ, my advocate. Amen.Â
1 John 1:8 ESV
8Â If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, andÂ the truth is not in us.
1 John 2:1 ESV
Christ Our Advocate
2Â My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin,Â we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.
Romans 8:1-9 ESV
Life in the Spirit
8Â There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.Â 2Â For the law ofÂ the Spirit of lifeÂ has set youÂ free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.Â 3Â ForÂ God has done what the law,Â weakened by the flesh,Â could not do.Â By sending his own SonÂ in the likeness of sinful flesh andÂ for sin,Â he condemned sin in the flesh,Â 4Â in order thatÂ the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us,Â who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.Â 5Â ForÂ those who live according to the flesh set their minds onÂ the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds onÂ the things of the Spirit.Â 6Â For to setÂ the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.Â 7Â For the mind that is set on the flesh isÂ hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law;Â indeed, it cannot.Â 8Â Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
9Â You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact, the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.
1 John 2:29 ESV
29Â If you know thatÂ he is righteous, you may be sure thatÂ everyone who practices righteousness has been born of him.
1 Peter 1:14 ESV
14Â As obedient children,Â do not be conformed to the passionsÂ of your former ignorance,
Galatians 5:17 ESV
17Â ForÂ the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other,Â to keep you from doing the things you want to do.
Romans 6:14 ESV
14Â ForÂ sinÂ will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.
