Feb 6 Devotion: Mortify Yourselves

Col. 3:5-6- “Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: [6] For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:”

As Believers, we are to bring our flesh under subjection by yielding to the Holy Spirit and the Scriptures. Here, we find the secret for being successful: by “mortifying” it.

To mortify is to…

1) Starve

2) Strangle

3) Suffocate

4) Stifle

5) Slay.

May the Lord help us to feed our inner man that we might mortify our flesh so as to be a vessel that brings honor and glory to Him!

-Pastor Doug Foster
