ANSWERS WEEK # 3

1). How do we put the flesh to its death?

We mortify the deeds of the flesh, which is the body by putting them to death. If God said don’t do it, then don’t do it. That is obedience to God’s right living, in a word, it’s sanctification, the process by which the Holy Spirit works in the lives of God’s adopted children to grow them and form them into the image of God’s one and only Son, Jesus Christ. Sanctification is God’s will for our lives (1 Thessalonians 4:3), and it is the purpose to which He has called us (Romans 8:29).

2). Speaking spiritually, how can we not waste the day?

We don’t need to spend the day worry about tomorrow, because God’s grace is on us to handle whatever we need for today, this way, we spend our day doing what God led us to do, today.

3). Read Matthew 6:31.

The scripture tells us not to waste our thoughts, Therefore take no thought, saying, what shall we eat? or, what shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?” (Matthew 6:31).

4). Why do we worry?

The energy that we spend worrying can be put to much better use in prayer. The Christian life unhampered by worry is one of our greatest freedoms. … Most of our worries never come to pass anyway, and those that do can only be handled at that moment, and by God’s grace. We worry because we do not trust God as we should.

5). How do we do what is right?

We do what is right by thinking the right things, our thoughts are very important.

6). Read Romans 12:2.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” We do this by reading the Word of God and applying it to our lives.

7). How do we get to right behavior?

When we intentionally begin to “take every thought captive” and think good thoughts on purpose, it won’t take long for our behavior to get in line too.

8). Read Philippians 4:8.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. What did Apostle Paul say? “Think on these things.” AMEN.

9). How do we practice an attitude of gratitude?

Be grateful! An attitude of gratitude means creating a conscious mindset and habit to be thankful, and express appreciation for, every aspect of your life, both big and small. When you have an attitude of gratitude you are focused on expanding the positives in your life, rather than dwelling on the negatives.

10). Read Leviticus 7:12, Isaiah 57:19, Hosea 14:2, Hebrews 13:15

Please read these scriptures, they will bless your spirit and the knowledge you need to be grateful. “By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God, continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.” Be grateful!!!

11). Our victory comes from a good attitude, and what?

You need to adopt a good attitude and mortify the flesh.

12). Explain the differences of walking in the Spirit and walking in flesh.Walking in the Spirit produce the fruit of the Spirit, but walking in the flesh it produces ungodly characters, such as adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, and negative thinking. “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die—in the sense of Ro 6:21, but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body (flesh) ye shall live.”

13). Read Romans 8:13; 6:21; 6:22, Galatians 5:24-25.

It is good reading my friend!!

14). What is sanctification?

Sanctification literally means “to set apart for special use or purpose”, that is, to make holy or sacred. Therefore, sanctification refers to thestate or process of being set apart, “made holy”, as a vessel, full of the Holy Spirit of God.

15). If you are carnally minded, what happen?

Carnally minded is dead to the things of God, and you can not receive from God, because the carnal mind is enmity against God. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. … If you’ve set your mind on the things of the flesh you are carnally minded. the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So, then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. … For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

16). Read (Ro 8:13, and compare Ga 6:7, 8; Eph 5:6; Php 3:18, 19; 1 Jo 3:7, 8).

More reading. What did you get when you compared them? Be not deceived by the enemy!!
17). Name the things we are told to mortify.

These arefornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry, and anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, and filthy communication, in short, to put off the Old Man with his deeds.

18). What set of clothes are you wearing now?

I am wearing the new set of clothes, new man. Thank You Jesus!

19). Explain the new and old nature.

The old clothes are the old man, and the new clothes are the new man in Christ Jesus, we are new creatures in Christ Jesus. We walk by the Spirit now, and no longer walk by the flesh.

20). Read again Romans 12:2.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
