The emmity between spirit and flesh


Here’s the thing about obedience; we Need our natural mortal bodies that are enmity against the Spirit to obey in the first place. So how does one subject the flesh to the Spirit to be obedient given the pareters set above; I’ll suggest something found in Romans 8 as set forth by the Apostle Paul. He basically states that if we set our minds on Spriritual matters and be led by the Spirit than we would not fulfill the lusts of the flesh and be lead astray away from God.
So the next question that begets itself is how does one be led by the Spirit. Rom 8:14 “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” We must seek His face continually to get the answers we need in this life. In Jer 29:13 God says to us “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.”. And when we hear Him in our heart that is which me must obey. This is being led by the Spirit and later on I will post regards to how you know it’s the Spirit of God you’re listening to.
