The Flesh, in short implication.

Christian Living

Some words are repeatedly heard in the congregation, though the expression is
well known, but its implication remains intangible.


The flesh is personal abilities. The personal ability is the will of
the individual. This in itself does not bear wrong doing.
Nevertheless, a believer is called to believe in Christ. Hence, a
believer who no longer believes in Christ, knowingly or
unknowingly in essence has resorted to unbelief by trusting in his
or her abilities which is the flesh rather than trusting in God's will.

We cannot live without a will, but our will must be made
conformable to God's will (Galatians 2:20). As Christ was
crucified, but yet Resurrected. So shall be the will or the abilities
of the believer, the flesh must be crucified that we may be risen in
newness of life. By trusting in God's will, He becomes our
Provider and our Shield. If God is for us, who or what shall be
against us?

(Galatians 2:20) I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless, I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:

and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and
gave himself for me.


Really true. Most people like promoting self-trust, self-will, self-confidence etc. But i wonder the boldness of such assertions if such persons really meditate on Phillipians 3:3-5


3 For, we, are the circumcision, who in the Spirit of God, are doing divine service, and are boasting in Christ Jesus, and, not in flesh, having confidence,––  Deut 10:16; Deut 30:6; Jer 4:4; John 4:24; Rom 2:29; Col 2:11;
4 Although, indeed, I, might have confidence even in flesh. If any other thinketh to have confidence in flesh, I, more:–– 2Cor 11:21;
5 Circumcised, the eighth day, of the race of Israel, of the tribe of....
The flesh is actually the person. And the believers new self is now identified with Christ in whom he is seated before God...And is now his boast. The believer boasts as now in Christ-Rom 16:7

Amen, but sadly so, there are many who put the Word beneath their goals. However, when failures arrive, they turn to question the Lord.
