LESSON 10: Sunday 9th November 2014
MEMORY VERSE: “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” Romans 8:37
BIBLE PASSAGE: Galatians 5: 16-18
16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh:and these are contrary the one to the other:so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. (KJV)
INTRODUCTION: It is possible to overcome carnality if we can take the neccessary steps towards that. However, there is the need for us to know how to overcome carnal life and the rewards for the overcomers.
1. HOW TO OVERCOME THE CARNAL LIFE
2. REWARDS FOR OVERCOMERS
HOW TO OVERCOME THE CARNAL LIFE
-Admit that carnality is a sin. So many carnal Christians excuse away this sin by claiming that it is their nature – 1Corinthians 11:31, 1Corinthians 5:1-2.
-Agree that living in obedience to the Spirit of God is possible. To live by the Holy Spirit is not a theory but practicable. Romans 7:18.
-Bear the fruit of the Spirit. This is the only outward proof of spirituality.
-Live a Spirit-led life – Galatians 5:22-23. Have divine insight Into all things.
REWARDS FOR OVERCOMERS
God did not ask His children to serve Him in vain. There are many rewards from God for those who overcome. These include:
– Crown of righteousness – 2Timothy 4:8.
– Grace to reign with Him – 2Timothy 2:12.
– Crown of life – James 1: 12.
– Rest from all labours – Revelations 4: 13.
– Access to eat from the tree of life- Revelations 2: 7.
– No hurt of the second death – Revelations 2: 11.
– Access to eat of the hidden manna and a new name – Revelations 2: 17.
– Power over the nations – Revelations 2:26.
– Clothed in white raiment and secured name in the book of life – Revelations 3:5.
– You will be made a pillar in God’s temple – Revelations 3:12.
You can overcome carnality by taking the necessary steps cited in this study. Above all, you can also enjoy all the rewards of the overcomers enumerated above if you take the necessary steps to overcome carnality.
1. Mention three steps you must take to overcome carnality.
2. Mention any three rewards for overcomers.
