No Godly thing dwells in our flesh. Our flesh need a denial trial. We do not owe our flesh any respect. God resist selfish pride and the sins of the flesh. We cannot be led by the Spirit and walk in the flesh.
Offenses will come. But there can be no offenses in Church if we refuse to listen to the flesh. If we are not willing to change while in Church and serving God, we will change our environment by leaving Church in some cases.
The Spirit of God (the Comforter) is what will comfort us when we will kill the flesh. We are not to go through the motions of doing Spiritual things when we are not in the Spirit. And the Holy Ghost working inside of us will never agree with our flesh.
We cannot get out of the purpose of God and have everything working for our good or perfect purpose. It’s not so much about what we are going through but about who we are with while going through that. So we are to be careful about making Spiritual decisions while in the flesh. Because God will not be in that. (ARC Sunday Service August 6, 2017 with Pastor John Edwards)
And the Bible says…
“Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered” Romans 8:26 KJV.
“And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God” Romans 8:27 KJV.
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose”
Romans 8:28 KJV.
