WORTH THE BATTLE

WORTH THE BATTLE
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

 Crucifying the flesh is a regular, uncomfortable, unnatural, holy business;
It must be done daily and deliberately.
It must be done with earnest resolve and an intensive appeal to the Spirit for a supernatural impartation of strength.
The glory of resisting the flesh lies in the desire to give glory to God;
He is worth the battle every time.

Do not grow disheartened in the heat of the battle by all that wars within you,
by all that must be resisted and refused.
It is only a display of Christ at work ...
A sure witness that what you leave behind will be superseded by what you receive within.
Drive a stake into the reality that a great grace and an immeasurable peace awaits you at the end of the battle.
Drive a stake into the flesh;
And God will drive a stake into your soul.
You are His and He is yours …
Give glory to Him.

"I am crucified with Christ; nevertheless I live; yet not I but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me."
Galatians 2:20
