"The Spider Who Wouldn’t Die!"

I live in Kansas and I have heard about a lot of spider bites lately. I saw one in my bathroom one morning and I pounded him until I thought the deed was done. I went back to doing what I was doing and the next thing I knew, he got up and ran away. Now if you are like me, you are wondering the same thing that crossed my mind, “I didn’t know that spiders could play dead.” I foolishly believed spiders were not capable of playing dead.

Sometimes the sin in our lives is the same way, it looks dormant but it is waiting to spring back to life and run away with us. We see it when it comes in the form of temptation but because we think that we have killed that part of ourselves we take for granted that it will always be there as long as we are in the flesh. So what do we do? The word says that if we walk in the spirit that we will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. There is a constant battle between our flesh and our spirit, so who will win? The one we kill the most!

We kill the flesh by calling on the name of Jesus. We kill the flesh by the Word of God. We kill the flesh by not giving in to its desires, don’t answer that text, that phone call. We kill the flesh by hearing the Holy Spirit when it tells us to go another way. We kill the flesh by calling those things that be not as though they were. We kill the flesh by putting on our armor daily. We don’t have to go it alone we have help!
