Fleshly Rejection (Romans 7:15-21)Cameron Crisp, September 29, 2019
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
When the flesh can’t do anything it’s when the spirit takes over. The spirit is always wanting to do good but the flesh will not allow it. The sin of the flesh holds back the spirit from working. Throughout the Bible we find many of times where people wanted to do good however, their flesh was always holding them back. Jesus was the only one that was to reject His flesh. He went thru the same fleshly battles as we do and have gone thru. He was tempted just as us but was able to reject the devil each time.
Don’t let the flesh rule in you life. When you get up on a Sunday morning with the thought of attending church and allow the flesh to overcome and don’t attend, the spirit lost. The lost lives their life by the flesh. They do things thru works that are good however the spirit is not there to bare witness. These works have no bearing on getting to Heaven. Salvation thru Christ Jesus is the only thing that will open the doors unto Heaven. At the time of death, the flesh will turn to dust. It holds nothing just as the works of man hold no bearing on salvation. The spirit within, being saved, is the only thing that matters at the time of death.
If the flesh is ruling in your life and there is no conviction, you’re lost.

15For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. 16If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. 17Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 18For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. 19For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. 20Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 21I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. (KJV)
