Crucify the Flesh

One of the big barriers to prayers being answered is a failure to crucify the flesh.  Jesus said “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me.” In Galatians, we’re told “Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.” In other words, you can’t serve two masters. You can’t serve the flesh and the spirit. You only can only serve one or the other and the flesh can drive the spirit away. Crucifying the flesh means putting aside impulses and desires and behaviors that we know are wrong and that want to be fed.  It’s an appetite, and we have to starve it out.
