The next enemy we will discuss is the flesh. We are not talking about the flesh on our bodies but rather the fleshly fallen nature that we have each inherited from Adam. This flesh principle still has an influence in our lives even though we, as Believers, are crucified with Christ. We seem to have a hard time staying on that cross. We are not yet sin free or totally free from the principle of sin that still operates in our flesh. But, God has made provision.
