What we FEED...


"So kill (deaden, deprive of power) the evil desire lurking in your members [those animal impulses and all that is earthly in you that is employed in sin]: sexual vice, impurity, sensual appetites, unholy desires, and all greed and covetousness, for that is idolatry (the deifying of self and other created things instead of God)" © Col 3:5 AMP italics and emphasis mine

Apostle Paul was not writing to unbelievers, he was writing to what he called ''SAINTS'', CHURCH, and Believers who lived in Colossae. NOTE that he did not ask them to fast and pray, read the word…he said 'kill-deprive-remove '. My understanding to this is simple, what we FEED grows and what we DEPRIVE wither and DIE.

The problem with many saints THEN and NOW is we lack the discipline required to deny, deprive and eventually be in control of our resident evil desires…thus we are enslaved. HOW do you get freedom? Deaden – deprive - mute the member in question….it helps to have a brother/sister in agreement!
