This is a tragic and yet beautiful picture of the WAR that takes place in life and mind. It’s the battle for supremacy between the LAW OF GOD and the LAW OF SIN within every heart. Paul is documenting the inward tug-of-war that takes place between his spirit man and his flesh. He makes it clear that it is his MIND that will determine which side wins. Your MIND will cast the determining VOTE between your FLESH and your SPIRIT. Which ever one wins the allegiance of your MIND will ultimately claim control over your LIFE!

Outgrow Your Temptations
Part Four • September 25, 2019 • Ronnie Harrison
Paul teaches that you can outgrow your temptations. (“When I was a child…”) This is looking back on a previous time. He is acknowledging that he was a child, and that he had the “tendencies” of a child but that he had MOVED ON from that. Some people NEVER move on—they don’t know how to, or don’t know how to WANT to GROW. They are still dealing with the same desires and emotions as they did when they were an adolescent.
Tear Down the Stronghold
Part Two • September 11, 2019 • Germaine Brunson
Your senses become doors of entry to temptations that seek to enslave your life. (See, hear, touch, taste, smell) Each of these become doors and they leave doors called memories. These memories can produce “thought strongholds” that will eventually lead you back to ensnaring actions. It's time to tear them down.
