September 1, 2015: The Obvious Effects Of Our Corrupt Nature
Without inviting and yielding to the Holy Spirit's ever present work, we are subject to our old man taking over once again. It is not so much that the "old self" has power over us anymore after Christ's deliverance, but the habits of thought and heart continue to invade our lives without the Spirit's ongoing work.

September 2, 2015: Cultivating Your Spiritual Nature
As we cultivate yielding to the Holy Spirit, He delivers us, empowers us, and frees us with peace. We simply walk with Him in confidence. The law in our flesh is a struggle. The Holy Spirit removes the struggle and carries us in peace.
