Spiritual Conflict Naturally Lies Within Ourselves
Romans 8:3-5 (KJB) For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: 4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. 5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
Oh, how easy it is to blame another person for the many trials and tribulations we face.
However, we must take note that this verse indicates that spiritual conflict arises within the state of our own natural heart condition. This has been the case since that fateful day that sin entered into this world through Adam.
Secondly, please take note that this natural conflict let in by Adam’s choice to sin, has been taken care of. God sent His Only Son to erase or eradicate the sin debt and condemnation of the entire world; past, present, and future.
Calvary paved the way for each of us to quit being a slave to sin. It freed us from being a natural servant of sin to serving and savoring God. Each of us must put off the natural man agree with God about the nature of sin, and identify with supernatural power and presence of God.
