“This is the account of Noah and his family. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God.” Genesis 6:9 NIV
Many are busy resisting sin when they can actually graduate to living above sin. When you are alive to God, you will become dead to sin.
“The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.” Romans 6:10-11 NIV
“I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.” Galatians 5:16 NKJV
Walking in the spirit is the key to overcoming flesh. If you follow the prompting of the Holy Ghost you will subdue the flesh and live above sin.
