What Is the Flesh and How Can It Be Defeated?
You do not have an old nature and a new nature. When tempted, we must remember what Christ has done for us and realize that, by the power of the Spirit, we don’t have to do things the old way. Hold tightly to the truth that God has made us a new creation and we walk according to that truth. When we set our minds on the truth about ourselves and our true desires, we automatically avoid walkingby the flesh. So, let’s live according to the truth of who we are, and the flesh will be defeated, even if it is religious flesh, or perfectionist flesh.
