Who are you battling?

When people fast, they realize how strong their sinful, fleshly nature is. They are denying themselves the comfort and sustenance of food. It’s very difficult to fast because of our flesh primarily.

Yet I hear people say that they are battling Satan. Are they really battling him? Or are they battling their flesh? Or in reality, are they battling the Holy Spirit of God?

Romans 6 reminds us that we are set free from sin but our battle is continually with our fleshly, sinful nature.

That’s why I deal with sin issues in counseling primarily. These issues must be addressed and taken to the Cross for forgiveness.

-Mark (sometimes we blame Satan or give him too much credit when the problem is really us)
