TUSSLE FOR SUPREMACY; THE UNHEALTHY RUCKUS BETWEEN THE FLESH AND THE SPIRIT

Mesmerized by the beauty of life possessed by Christian hood, I got so depressed again and again that many are missing out on this experience. The wonderful life with the Holy Spirit which influences your decision and simplify the cup of living a righteous life. The concept of Christianity has been reduced to nothing particularly since the 19th century. In the earlier days, the church was an inspiration but now it is being devoured by the purported Christians who in my own view are Babbitt. Don’t get it twisted, the idea of living unto God and man can never make out a balance to life. A Christian is dead to the world and alive unto God alone. Many love to shade the truth giving it the color they love best. Well we should come to realize that we have sold our rights and submitted all authority to God the moment we came into Christ. That nonchalant self-dwelling in the boulevards of lust has to be broken. Carnality cannot be juxtaposed to the idea of spirituality, they totally oppose each other and therefore cannot walk side by side. Lots of persons have said wisdom is profitable. They rely on their senses and terminate the true meaning of that assertion. Yes, wisdom is profitable but the same word of the living God says get wisdom and in all thy getting obtain understanding.

Life has been thrown in the bin of stupor as many misconstrue what wisdom really is. They have resort to all sort of actions claiming that the scripture urges us to enjoy our youthful days. Ok, the question needs have this outlook: What should constitute our youthful days being in the kingdom of light and not darkness? Is it immorality? Multifarious sexual relationships which defiles the soul and stigmatizes our spirit man? You may ask what is worldly? Anything worldly is that which does not pertain to the way of “truth” which is the word of God. So if you are sharing your bodies, prioritizing partying over worshipping and scheming all sorts of execrable strategies to influence the righteous then you are wrong. UNGODLINESS would NEVER be an INGREDIENT of wisdom. We all should note that the wisdom of the world is foolishness unto God. Therefore by dancing to the rhythm of a dark circular life and ignorantly denouncing your priesthood in Christ, which in your own eye is the balance of life, you are being unreasonable in every sense to the word of God. We all know the word of God reveals God, so we are being foolish to God. We are all for gods and whatever time we take to perform our various activities should be to the glory of his name. On the other hand, the carnal man would see the wisdom of God, believers and saints as foolishness. They deem it foolish to show charity, they render it impossible to love their neighbors, they render it foolishness to live their youthful days without performing the act of dating, kissing and defiling themselves. They curse at those who intend to wait on the lord who would reveal to them his purpose of creating them. They utterly scoff those who choose to keep themselves “untouched” until the lord leads them to a life partner who would be a helper and not a destroyer. Painfully, they criticize and hate those who tell the world it wrongs and spread the gospel. All these, judging by the word of God, are wise doings but the world has labeled them foolishness by their conducts.

So how many are left to be God’s own people? A people whose trademark is excellence in profession for the benefit of the gospel; a people whose aim in life is soul winning, soul building, soul training and sending for the gospel; a people who have an intimate relationship with God. Let us not be imprisoned by ignorance, we all should devote our youthful days to serving the Lord because it would definitely be too late when we become weary, trudging our weak bones down the aisle of dejection, perturbation and havoc. We should rehabilitate ourselves in line with living the good life. By so doing, we shall renew our minds and shred the foreskin of carnality. We would never make it on our own yet we are not left unaided. We possess the Holy spirit of our creator. By giving ourselves to the word of God we renew our hearts and cause his spirit to dwell in us. 

Heard, felt, and true is that only the word can change the mechanization of our minds and re-ignite the fire of his love. Only this engrafted word can break the shackles of habitual sin which would liberate us from the joint tenancy with Satan, sin and self. This alone can set us free from the lust of the flesh, the wild feelings of rebelliousness and the spirit of error. Remember, we are loved by God. The solid reason which made him sacrifice himself to liberate us from darkness. All that great sacrifice should not be ruined by our obduracy. We should amend our ways, then staying on his word would help us break free from the enslavement of sin. Well, more power to your elbows on the race of Christianity.

My name is Okocha Obed, you can call me Obeezy. I love to display aesthetics through my ink—I must say writing is my small world. I consider myself a deep writer; I say I am deep because I have discovered that part about myself, even, my fabulous audience share same view. I believe in connecting to all kind of persons as there is always something to learn from everyone. I see myself as an actor; to stay on the stage, I need to think ink. The voice is a reflection of myself and my conscience. I always felt I could be like superman while growing up. It was pretty ridiculous so all I did was dream of being a soldier. It was abortive. So I created a world where I could keep talking about the ills in my community but with other flavours to show I am growing into completeness. keep reading.
