    Week 21 Self-Denial

    Christians have two natures. If we are going to grow in Christ, we must
    learn to say “No” to the flesh, which is the old nature, and “Yes” to Christ, who lives within us.

    1. Circle key words and phrases in the following Scriptures.

    I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in
    me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
    GALATIANS 2:20

    Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul.
    1 PETER 2:11

    You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; . . . and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
    EPHESIANS 4:22, 24

    Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think
    about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature.
    ROMANS 13:14

    * Then he said to them all: “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.”
    LUKE 9:23

    No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.
    1 CORINTHIANS 9:27

    2. What do we learn about self-denial in (answer briefly):
    Galatians 2:20
    Romans 13:14
    1 Peter 2:11
    Luke 9:23
    Ephesians 4:22, 24
    1 Corinthians 9:27

    Can you translate these bible verses for me? Apparently, I cannot interpret them properly without the aid of the Holy Spirit, who isn't returning my phone calls. I can read the words but their meaning completely escapes me. Just as Darfius and Blindfaith101 predicted.

    RB, could you offer an interpretation of the verse where Jesus says if your eye offends you pluck it out or if your hand offends you it is better to cut it off. Should we take this literally?

    "do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature."

    RBHILL, how does one gratify the desires of the sinful nature?

    It means to git ride of the things that drag you done.

    For example, I am not trying to gossip but I to this one guy I am not hangout with him anymore because all he wants to do is to go to sinful places so I told him I can't do that stuff becasue I need to be a good example to my parents, and that is all that matters to me, is for my parents to accept Christ.
    So I got ride of him so I cut that stuff out of my eye.

    But there are some unsavory types here on this site, but you continue to associate with them. Don't you feel your presence has some value on the site? I agree with you that if you "sleep with dogs, you'll get fleas" , but it sounds like you are not advocating a Muslim punishment of plucking out eyes or cutting off hands. So Jesus was being figurative here.

    Have you noticed how often I ask questions with the sole purpose of trying to illicit more information?

    Doctor,

    I am certain that he is a green man, because to use an avatar which
    inaccurately depicts himself would be a violation of the commandment
    not to lie.

    Your lack of faith is disheartening.
