Who is Your Driver? -1
Galatians 5:16 “[This] I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.”
Galatians 5:17 “For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.”
This piece is a sequel to the just concluded “Life lessons from Driving”. I want you to fully understand who should be at the driver’s seat of your life and destiny, the one that should be at the helm of your affairs.
You must understand that as a man you have three components: your spirit, soul and body.
1 Thessalonians 5:23 “And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and [I pray God] your whole SPIRIT and SOUL and BODY be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
1 Thessalonians 5:23 “May God himself, the God who makes everything holy and whole, make you holy and whole, put you together–SPIRIT, SOUL, and BODY–and keep you fit for the coming of our Master, Jesus Christ.” (MSG)
Man is tripartite and we must clearly understand this. At the new birth, when we become born again children of God, our spirit is regenerated. It becomes new as old things pass away. Our spirit gets reconnected to the Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit comes and indwells us.
However, our soul which is the seat of our will, emotions, thoughts, mind and feelings is not born again. Same goes for our body. This is a challenge we all face. The information we have in our soul is the one we grew up with, and which has been controlling our lives. This is the stuff driving us.
Our flesh is our body, which is the component that makes us legal beings on earth. The issue is, for many people after giving their lives to Christ, the spirit comes alive to drive the vehicles of their lives, but then the flesh also jumps into the driver’s seat and a serious struggle ensues.
To be continued…
