I have a new thought about Flesh. The usual is we are to crucify the flesh -Right?? Well I always had a negative thought pattern toward Flesh in general. Anyway here is what the Lord is showing me.
Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
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.
This FLESH is crucified – Canst thou believe??? It is ALREADY Crucified. By my acceptance of His death for mine –it is CRUCIFIED AND DEAD.
Now we still have this body and this soul and we are Spirit. The function of the soul is to transfer Spirit Life into flesh behavoir. Sound strange??? i thought so too at first But if the GOAL is for the WORD to be made flesh. Then the flesh becomes just a vehicle for SPIRIT FILLED LIFE to ride and be delivered to the world.
