I am the first

The flesh profits nothing

Romans 7:24

24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? 25 Thanks be to God, through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with my mind I serve the law of God, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin.…

You cannot overcome anything depending on your flesh. Flesh profits nothing, in it dwells no good thing. Jesus’ teachings made us understand we cannot bear fruit outside of Him.

What wretched men we are, how long have we promised not to fall but keep on falling? But praise be to God through Jesus who gives us victory over sin.

To overcome the flesh, the law of God must saturate your entirety. When the word of God captures your mind all members of your body will submit to God.

 

If I stand or I should fall
You know me well, You see it all
My darkest nights, my deepest fears
I cry to You and You will hear
Boundless love, Come carry me
To the place where I at last I’m free
Where I belong and You will be
Where all of You is all of me
Boundless love, Come carry me
In Your fullness, I will rest
I find Your peace beneath the cross
Knowing You, my one desire
Take me now to where You are
Here we stand now in Your name
You’ve changed our hearts, We’re not the same
Your love has captured all we are
Oh Lamb of God, Sweet Morning Star
Where I belong and You will be
Where all of You is all of me
Boundless love, Come carry me
