    But the fruit of the Spirit is self-control. Galatians 5:23

    As if it wasn't bad enough, the devil comes to rob, kill and destroy, but self is man's worst enemy always wanting to have its own way! In the garden the devil deceived Adam and Eve by convincing them that God would want them to eat from a tree He said not to eat from, and the result was man fell from grace into sin and was expelled!

    When one is born again, he is freed from sins and empowered to walk in the Spirit but the "Old Man," the flesh is always tugging at the "New Man" trying to seduce him to walk in the flesh! The apostle Paul explained it like one having a corpse chained to him as the Romans did to kill their enemies! Even the world acknowledges this in the lyrics of Lynyrd Skynyrd, "The smell of death surrounds you!"

    I know that smell having been a hopeless addict hooked to many different drugs and being an alcoholic for years but when Jesus saved me, He empowered me to be free and to walk in His Spirit! So can you if you are struggling with some addiction or lust, surrender to God and make Jesus your Lord and repent and He will set you free!

    I say then; Walk in the Spirit and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. Galatians 5:16,17
