Feeding the Flesh

Post  fennywest on Sun 31 Jan 2010, 4:28 am





Feeding the Flesh

Is starving the spirit
Empowering the carnal
Sowing to the wind
To reap a whirlwind.



Feeding the Flesh
Building a castle
On the sand
Which will come crashing
In the evil day.


Feeding the Flesh
Is wounding the spirit
Selling your birthright
For a bowl of soup
Which you cannot recoup.

Feeding the Flesh
Is killing your spirit
Mortgaging your future
Defying God
Agreeing with the devil.

Feeding the Flesh
Is corroding your spirit
Weakening your spirit
Polluting the spirit
Digging your grave.

Feeding the Flesh
Signing a contract
Of lose, lose, lose,
Weakness, weakness, weakness
And loss, loss, loss.

Feeding the Flesh
Is simply insanity
Embracing doom
Caressing destruction
Partying with damnation.

Feeding the Flesh
Is kissing the devil
Inviting malnutrition
Spiritual blindness;
Fancying folly.

Feeding the Flesh
Is sowing trouble
Fuelling rubble
Permitting downfall
Hating your spirit.


The choice is YOURS.




Life by the Spirit



16So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. 17For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want. 18But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law.

19The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. 25Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other. Gal5:14-26

I enjoyed this poem very much! Truly we need to guard our hearts, to be in the word and prayer. It is so easy to take our focus of the spiritual man with the cares and burdens of the world. Blessings.
