No matter how hard one tries, the flesh is going to be with us. In fact, trying seems to complicate the matter rather than help it. Surrender seems to be a much better term to use when battling the flesh. Isolation is another key word of the flesh. When a struggle of the flesh is kept in isolation it will only flourish. Struggles of the flesh are like an ugly bacteria that will only grow in the darkness of a closet. Opening the closet door and exposing the LIGHT kills the disease.

As I am going through the 6-week series with the group on Saturday mornings, this truth about the flesh is tremendously exposed. We men are not good at letting our struggles be known. However, when we do and we begin to bring accountability into our daily living, the Light of Jesus shines into our lives like it never has before. What a loving Savior and Lord Jesus is!
