TODAY’S VERSE: COLOSSIANS 3:5
That is why you must put to death every desires of the flesh in you: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed which is idolatry.
Today, the Lord wants us to make conscious effort and kill fleshy desires in us. God is not in any way suggesting suicide here. Desires that are toxic to our spiritual growth should be nailed and killed. Habits that will eclipse our spiritual life should be put to death. This spiritual exercise of learning how to die is a daily exercise where we make effort to starve the flesh while the Soul feasts.
We all have something we are so much attach to that has grown and on the verge of over shadowing our spiritual life. We put that habit to death. When we consciously make effort to get rid of habits that God abhors and live a new life, we are learning to die.
