The Carnal Man and the Spiritual Man

Wednesday February 15, 2012

I Cor. 3:1-3-7. Carnal Christians act like babes in Christ. Envy, strife, and divisions are signs of carnality and being in the flesh. Carnal Christians don’t follow the Spirit and can lose their salvation. Romans 8:1-14. They can’t take strong teaching; their carnal minds are enmity with Christ; they can’t please God; they can’t walk by faith; to be carnally minded and living according to the flesh is death. Carnality disconnects you from what you need and lets the flesh rule. Carnality is a sin. You repent out of it. Fasting and prayer deal with carnality. Gal. 5:16-22 tells us that if we walk in the Spirit, we won’t fulfill the lust of the flesh. Don’t fight sin- walk by the Spirit! The Spirit of God is stronger to convict than the flesh’s strength to sin. You can’t walk by the Spirit and by the flesh, because they are at war with each other. The Spirit will lead you into love. Follow the Spirit.
