Happy Monday everyone! I hope everyone started the work week with thier best foot forward :).
Romans 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
This passage made me think of something a preacher said once. He said in general we can submit most things to the Spirit but there is always one fleshy thing or sin that we struggle to let go of. Then we feel like we are ok with God cuz we’ve surrender the majority of our flesh or let go of most our carnal ways. But then he goes on to say. ‘Did you know that most of the people that won’t make it to heaven won’t be because of multiple sins? But it’ll be cuz of the one sin they could not let go of’. This really shook me cuz I know I still have carnal things to let go of. And now I’m reading that they that are in the flesh can not please God. It’s seems harsh, but if he gave his all for us it seems only fair that he expect the same from us. ♥
