LETíS TALK DA 2-26 + 11-18 1OF1

 

Letís talk about flesh and spirit...

   to make clear what God really says;

 

I ask right now, Lord Jesus,

   to please keep out of my head

all of the things that I have been told;

   Instead, that Your Spirit will unfold

the message that You intended for me;

   To hear all that You say and walk perfectly free.

 

I have been told that the flesh is evil;

   Or does it just need to be trained?

Will I, in fact, cut others some slack

   to help them walk out of their pain?

 

I notice that in Galatians,

   the overall theme thatís discussed:

Is that trying to love You

   with efforts that look good;

invokes in You great disgust. 

 

Now, this brings up a question,

   because Evil does have itís reward;

So teachers demand that you Ďwhateverí;

   but the Ďhow toí is always ignored!

 

Jesus entered a body that also had flesh;

   Was He taught it was evil or did He invest

His time asking Father for power that day

   to persuade Him and evidence all that God had to say.

 

Now, the difference, of course,

   is that He paid for me;

But, I know, in my spirit,

   that He wants me to see

with that great gift of Love

   He provided that hour...

a way of escape that The Lie canít devour

   because I stand gift righteous

and He has decreed:

   Evil no longer has power over me.

 

What makes this so hard

   to keep on my mind?

Why do I never hear this defined?

 

I know, in my struggle, if I step out

   on any other foundation...

An automatic happening with me:

   If I stumble, thereís great condemnation.

 

I am not deceived; I am fully persuaded

   that if I sow to the flesh, I will reap;

Godís truly not mocked and does not operate

   in order to try deceive...                                                                                                                       

But, am I not sowing to the flesh,

   if on the flesh I rely

and turn down His free gift of righteousness

   when Iím already justified?

 

Could it be that we teach what we donít believe  

   and give Evil ground to completely deceive?

 

It is soooo refreshing when I lay it all down

   and stand on that pre-paid Holy Ground;

Free to respond to a Love I can trust;

   Burdens and fears now a part of the dust...

that I really can shake off from my feet

                     BECAUSE

that kind of Love knows no defeat!!!!!

 

 

P.S  This might take a while;

   But, bare with me, my friend;

I really will try to never offend;

   And, if I do, I will pray for you

that weíll both get to victoryís end.

 

P.P.S  Do not mess with me, thou

   on this foundation;

I promise, there will be Righteous Indignation!
