Killing Sin by Changing Our Heart

By Kirby Harris

The Spirit really spoke to me today. Thought I would share it with you.

We try and kill sin and the flesh by controlling and modifying our behavior, when that doesn't kill it. Our heart desires feed the flesh and our sin. 

We need to let the Spirit change our heart, our desires by focusing on what Christ did for us and how we are only holy because of what he did, not what we do.

Colossians 2:20-23:

Since you died with Christ to the elemental spiritual forces of this world, why, as though you still belonged to the world, do you submit to its rules: “Do not handle! Do not taste! Do not touch!”? These rules, which have to do with things that are all destined to perish with use, are based on merely human commands and teachings. Such regulations indeed have an appearance of wisdom, with their self-imposed worship, their false humility and their harsh treatment of the body, but they lack any value in restraining sensual indulgence.
