Topic: Consequences Of Works Of The Flesh
Titus 1: 16 – They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
MFM Daily Devotional 26th November 2021 Outline
The Bible urges believers to walk in the Spirit so as not to fulﬁl the lust of the ﬂesh. Whatever you do that is not of faith or love is a work of the ﬂesh. It is sad that many people who go to church are unable to win the battle of the ﬂesh. The ﬂesh is so strong that it always pulls people away from God.
All the ﬂesh wants is comfort, entertainment and pleasure, nothing else. This is why those who walk in the ﬂesh cannot please God. This is why fellowship with God is needed on a daily basis so that the blood of Jesus will cleanse us from the lust of the ﬂesh. The ﬂesh is the carnal nature of man that is only required for use on earth; therefore, genuine Christians must not pamper the ﬂesh.
In Gal. 5:19-21, Apostle Paul states the works of the ﬂesh. As a child of God, avoid the following things as much as possible: unforgiving spirit, bitterness, ungodly criticism, uncontrollable emotions, rebellion to authority, hypocrisy, deceit, boasting, greed, pride, quarrel, lust for anything, abusive tendencies, etc.
Those who do these things cannot please God. The Holy Spirit is far from them. They are impure. They lack holy ﬁre. Their prayer altars are dead. They are spiritually blind. They face rejection and hatred. Demons use their bodies to launch satanic attacks. They cannot inherit the kingdom of God.
Beloved, it is your responsibility to crucify or mortify your ﬂesh. You should pray for the fruit of the spirit called temperance or self-control. Those who are controlled by ﬂesh are known by works of the ﬂesh that their lives and character reveal. It is better to kill the ﬂesh before it kills you. It is the enemy of everything spiritually good and rewarding.
It pulls you in a direction opposite the one God has chosen for your good. That is why you cannot pamper or condone its activities. Regular study of the word as well as meditation in it, fasting and praying as well as having regular retreat to be alone with God for recharging and reviving your spirit, soul and body are all important to strengthen the spirit and subdue the ﬂesh.
When you identify your weaknesses and work to overcome them, God is pleased with you.
No evil veil from your bloodline shall cover your glory, in the name of Jesus.
HYMN: I’ve A Friend Who will Ev’ry Need Supply
1. Tho’ the world allure with its gilded charm,
I’m a child of God whom it cannot harm;
He will me uphold by his mighty arm
Ev’ry moment of my day.
I’ve a friend who will ev’ry need supply
I’ve a home far beyond the starry sky,
And you know, that is just the reason why
I am singing Hallelujah!
2. I can ne’er forget how upon the tree
Laid the Son of God, there to die for me;
Yet to save my soul, thus it had to be,
There could be no other way.
3. I would e’er be true to my Lord and King,
Ev’ry waking hour praises to him sing,
Knowing that at last he my soul shall bring
Evermore with him to stay.
1. O God, my Father, empower me to win the battle of the flesh, in the name of Jesus.
2. Every witchcraft seed in my blood, catch fire, in the name of Jesus.
3. Garment of the flesh on my body, die, in the name of Jesus.
4. I receive fresh fire to dethrone the flesh in my life, in the name of Jesus.
5. Every instrument of hell fire opposing my walk with God, be dismantled, in the name of Jesus.
6. Anointing to walk in the Spirit, overshadow me, in the name of Jesus.
7. By the special grace of God, l shall not miss heaven, in the name of Jesus.
