We’ve confessed our sins, repented and asked the Lord to forgive us. We did it with a sincere heart. Now what?
And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Galatians 5:24
It’s time to sit down and make a hit list. This list doesn’t have the names of people on it. It has the names of the temptations and sin that held us in bondage before Jesus set us free. At the top of the list is the flesh.Our flesh is what get us in trouble. So much so, we can’t please God if we are being led by the desires of the flesh. (Romans 8:8; Galatians 5)
Galatians 5:19-21 shows us the hit list and we have to put these to death:
Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, etc.
The things on this hit list need to be gone! They will keep us from inheriting the Kingdom of God (heaven).
