Are You Indulging Your Flesh Or Separated Unto God?
Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house. He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. (Matthew 12:29-30 KJV)
The Lord is succinctly pointing out that man is either aligned with Him or living in opposition to Him. Mankind is either living a life which is pleasing and obedient to the truths of God or he is living a life that is aligned with the evil and darkness of this world.
Secondly, those who choose to live in the flesh are spiritually rotten. Bound up and marred by living a life which is abounding with sin and shame. Sin makes unregenerate people spiritual prisoners who become caught up in the ways of the devil, their understanding darkened about truths of God.
Lastly, those who are in a personal relationship with God are busy about professing the truths of His gospel message; while those following the devil promote seeds of evil and darkness.
