The Sin that Dwelleth In Me

Many believers are frustrated in their attempts to live for God because they are unwittingly doing so in the energy of their own flesh. They do not understand a foundational flaw in their efforts - we cannot look to the flesh to produce spiritual growth. Spiritual growth is not produced by our own willful desires to be like God. Spiritual growth comes as we yield ourselves to the leadership of the Holy Spirit. Not only will the arm of flesh fail you, it will never lead you to be godly because it is diametrically opposed to the law of God and the will of God. It is literally our enemy within.
