Devotional: As The Spirit Increases, The Flesh Decreases

Christian Women's Devotion on Living in the Spirit

God's Spirit Devotional bar

Read: Colossians 3:1-14 (NKJV)

I just love this chapter. We can all find ourselves somewhere in this chapter.

In verses 1-3, it reminds us that our minds need to be focused more on what is above. Storing up treasures in Heaven. Our real life is in Christ Jesus—it is not in what we have here on earth. There is no eternal value in earthly things. As we are clothed more with the new Spiritual self, more of the flesh will die away. As the Spirit increases our flesh decreases. We are made brand-new creations, but it doesn't happen overnight. We need to actively put away, or rid ourselves, of the desires and works of the flesh, and this is a daily process. It's a daily dying to self.

May we really desire to be clothed with the nature of Jesus—in every area of our lives. We need to allow the Holy Spirit to be in control and to increase more in our lives. By doing this we will become transformed and live more according to God's standards rather than the world's standards.

I appeal to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well-pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you]. - Romans 12:1-2 (AMPC)

Fill us with your Holy Spirit
Afresh today, O Lord,
So we will be totally transformed
From what we were before.
