Daily Devotionals: (Feb. 19th): Soldiers of Christ Arise

by Paul Thompson


Reading: “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live”Romans 8:13

The Christian has been chosen by God to be a soldier, to fight a holy war. It is a war against sin, whether that be sin within the body or without. We have enlisted in a battle against sin and are commissioned to kill the sin that is within. Paul adds that this killing of the flesh can only be done through the Spirit. Before a temptation can break into actual sin we are to slay that temptation with the sword of the spirit (Ephesians 6:17). Sin cannot take control of our members except we let it; let us therefore by the strength of Christ and the Holy Spirit go forth to victory in this war.
