"Those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires."
As we can see from the above verse, we most certainly have the power to rid our lives of those nagging fleshly desires. Maybe your fleshly desires include procrastination, being easily angered by your husband or children, or not being consistant in disciplining and training your children. Whatever your downfall remember that since we have been crucified with Jesus, by way of our salvation, and that salvation is what enables us to conquer our flesh. However, to succeed in doing this, we must be purposeful in defeating what our natural man is calling us to do. Take every thought captive and make it obedient unto Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5). When every thought is taken captive and called to obedience, then your actions will follow. You can defeat your natural man's sinful desires! Be purposeful and surrender your own selfish rights and desires, in order to bring Glory to God and acheive His purpose for you in life!
