Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to His cross and crucified them there. Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit's leading in every part of our lives.------Galatians 5:24-25
One of the very FIRST things that a person coming to Jesus Christ MUST do is to NAIL those SINFUL passions and desires to His cross. There is a saying that holds a whole lot of WISDOM. The saying is: "One BAD apple SPOILS the whole bunch." when we come to Christ for the SALVATION of our souls, we CONFESS our sins to Him and we NEED to CONFESS ALL the passions or desires of our SINFUL nature to Him. Not holding onto a ONE of them, because when we keep just ONE of those SINFUL passions or desires they will "SPOIL" our WALK with Jesus Christ and our witness of Him will become tainted too.
When we come to Him we NEED to nail them ALL to the cross and leave them there. Then we NEED to FOLLOW His Spirit's LEADERSHIP in EVERY part of our lives and we do this by SUBMITTING ourselves TOTALLY to the Spirit's CONTROL.
If you have NEVER come to Jesus and NAILED ALL your SINFUL passions and desires to the cross, but you are ALLOWING those SINFUL passions and desires to rule YOU and SPOIL your life, you can make a BIG change in your situation by: CONFESSING your sins to God and asking for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE, in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION. Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He's waiting!!!
