I thank God that He has revealed His truth to me, and allowed me to turn away from my own stubburn rebellion. The flesh and the Spirit are hostile towards one another, which is clear enough in these blogs. The so called is walking in the flesh 24/7. His own fleshy mind leaning on his own understanding, and rejecting everything concerning the Spirit. When I received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior many years ago my life totally changed. Suddenly I was very very interested in spiritual things. God teaches me daily to give myself over to His Spirit, but the battle is always there. Thank God for His Gift of eternal life, and for renewing my heart and mind by His Spirit and His Word. He is still tranforming minds and hearts today. PTL.
