We must choose to walk by the flesh or the spirit. Each walk will produce fruit. God calls us to choose which path we will walk.
There’s salvation and deliverance in the word of God. Each of us are the temple of God. He lives in us. The power and glory of God are in us. If we are very careful, idols will come in and dwell in our temple. We have to be careful to keep God as the Lord of our temple. God promised to dwell in us, walk with us, and make us His people. He promised to be our God.
Connectivity and inclusiveness are popular words right now. These are nice concepts if we could actually be in agreement. Christians agree that if you turn your back on wickedness, believe that Jesus is the Messiah who came, died, and rose to sit on the right hand of God. We agree that we am going to heaven because of His blood shed on a cross.
So we walk with Him. He is the God of our lives. We walk with Him denying ungodliness. To be in the flesh is to be in contrast with God. With salvation you must actively walk soberly and righteously. Salvation brings a grace that strengthens us to deny this present world and look for the appearing of our Savior.
Therefore we have some cleansing we have to do. We have to repent or turn from all filthiness of the flesh. We must choose to walk by the flesh or the spirit. Each walk will produce fruit. God calls us to choose which path we will walk.
2 Corinthians 6:16
And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said:
“I will dwell in them
And walk among them.
I will be their God,
And they shall be My people.”
For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, 12 teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age,
2 Corinthians 7:1
Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
Hebrews chapter 10 explains how Jesus came to perfect the sacrifice. When we choose to walk in His righteousness and in fear of His power and grace, the old sacrifice is no longer needed. Jesus made the final and ultimate sacrifice and our sins will He remember no more.
