If you kick a dead pit bull… will it bite you? Can it do anything to you? No. Because it is dead. But if you even poke a living pit bull, it will bite you quickly. That’s why the “pit bull” inside of you needs to die. So that it will not control your actions anymore.
Just like a pit bull, the same applies to a person and their human will. As long as your human will is alive inside of you, you will always react in a fleshly way. You will be drawn to the things of the flesh… lying, gossip, adultery, parties, etc. But when your flesh dies and you receive the Spirit of God, you will no longer be drawn to the flesh.
For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. Galatians 5:17
That is why God wants to give you His Spirit, because when you have His Spirit, you do the things of the Spirit. You become a nw person. The pit bull inside of you dies forever and you no longer react in a fleshly way. You become someone that is able to forgive, to help others, to speak the truth, the speak well of others, and all the other great traits that He brings.
That is why we are dedicating this past two weeks and this week ahead of us to seeking the Holy Spirit with all of our strength. Yes with ALL or our strength. It is ALL for ALL… Your all for Gods all. And I can assure you, His Spirit is worth more that anything that you can possibly give up. So dive into this purpose of faith with all of you and this will be the most important week of your life so far, because it will be the week that you received the Spirit of God.
May the God of the Bible Bless You
