The Apostle Paul pours out some very good advice for such a time as this. His advice is overlooked by this generation and for most generations thus far since creation.
“Put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provisions for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts.”
When “Flesh” is used think about this:
The often-used Greek word for "flesh", "sarx", forms the etymological root for our English word, "sarcophagus". Sarcophagi are ornately adorned stone coffins where the mortal flesh of humans (usually significant in some way during their lifetime) becomes entombed. They can be quite ornate and beautifully crafted. Thus, the Greek word for "flesh", ironically, carries in its meaning a hint of the mortal nature of the stuff we are made.
We can spend time and money dressing up our “sarcophagus” but will do well to spend more time on our spirit.
