Put To Death The Deeds Of The Body
For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body you will live.
Romans 8:13 RSV
Before I new Christ I would of never understood things from the bible, like put to death the deeds of the body and you will live.
Or do not be conformed to this world.
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
When I started this walk with my Lord Jesus I knew he had alot of work to do on me and it was left up to me to let him. Living this life with fleshly desire's makes it hard to focus. YES, we are human but we must try to stray away from fleshly desire's because they cause us to sin, they cause us to not be who Christ made us to be. This is why we are not to conform any longer to the pattern of this world. We are to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. How do we do this? We read the bible daily, we pray, and we focus on Jesus.
1 Peter 1:14
As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance.
Before we we're saved we lived in ignorance and now we are to not comform to the evil desire's of this word, we are not of this world. We live in to glorify God but we are not to be of it. God is so good to help and guide us through this time in our life, where the world is just falling apart and we really need his strength to carry on.
