The Split

What a difference a day makes! Sunday, you’re in church where people love you, where you’re at peace with God and filled with love and basking in His presence. Then Monday comes. Home is hectic and disorganized; every single driver on the road has it in for you; the boss snaps you up for no good reason; your co-workers hate you. The world has hammered you, so when you get back home, everybody better watch out for your patience is long gone. We can be one person at church and totally different during the rest of the week if we’re not careful. The Apostle Paul wrote, “I want to do what is right, but I can’t. I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway.” (Romans 7:18) Our spirit, soul, and body are in a constant rivalry. We determine in our soul if we are going to be more body oriented or spirit oriented. This is the struggle we endure. This is where the split happens. The pull and tug between our fleshly body, which craves the things of the world, and our spirit, which craves the things of God, can become fierce unless we keep our body under control and seek God through our spirit. Our body will rule us unless we embrace the presence of God through our spirit. God Loves You 😉
