Today is Friday, the 8 day of May in the year 2022, and our bible verse of the day will be taken from the book of (Galatians 5:17.).
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.
The above passage illustrates what the bible says about the conflict within man.
And this conflict goes on between the two elements that makes up a human being: the dust of the Earth (flesh) and the breathe of God (spirit).
But if you weigh the result of this conflict, you will discover that the flesh generally seems to win.
And I am always of the conclusion that, this happens because the only element we see amongst these 2 is the flesh.
We are being surrounded daily by the things we can feed our eyes with.
Beautiful cars and skyscrapers, fine women and handsome men, wads of cash and general material things.
They all push us into daily lusts that wars against our spirit.
Now the fruit of the spirit according to Galatians 5:22 are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility and self-control.
Though this attitudes may manifest physically when we exhibit them; still we cannot behold them with our naked eyes.
Human nature comes with so much passions and desires, but the scripture shows us in Galatians 5:24 says that those who belong to Christ Jesus have killed this human nature in their lives.
