Matthew 6:33 “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”

The Scene: A Saturn V rocket, lifting off from the launch pad; pulling against gravity–representing a Christian’s efforts to overcome the flesh (worldliness & the sin nature).

The Holy Spirit said, “The rocket has to overcome gravity to lift off its pad and begin its journey into the heavens.” Our flesh acts like gravity. It (the flesh) pulls, tugs at us as we Christians try to mature spiritually and come up higher, closer to God.

Like the Saturn V rocket we can overcome the flesh when we exert the energy to learn God’s way and try to follow His commands. Read His Word daily and do what it says. The more we mature spiritually the less inertia the flesh will have on us, as we follow after righteousness as overcomers.

2 Timothy 3:2-5 “People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God–having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.”

1 Thessalonians 5:8-9 “But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
