You aren't alone in having experienced this amazing grace. But unless one experiences it, it's mere folly.<quoted text>
It takes folks a little bit, to get used to the "players " on a topic, that are usualy there, and have been there for some time, and it takes me even longer. Lol
I will try and practice more like I preach.
I do want to tell you, that I truly am sorry for some of the comments, I've made toward you.
You are right, that ai had No excuse, only let my "flesh " override my "spirit ".
I hope you have a good Valintines day, even though I do not expect you to like me at all, but even though you come across as a pretty tough cookie, you still have feelings and are human, so again I am truly sorry for any hurtful or mean spirited comments I've made toward you.
I will try and not make any in the future, becouse when I do,my Father, just makes me apologize.:)
I forget many times, that I was NOT called to be a lawyer, or judge, but just a witness.
The apostle Paul, a Roman formerly known as Saul, went out of his way to persecute Christians until he, too, had the same experience you and I and millions of others have had over the past 2000 years. He talked about the battle with the flesh at the same time he was spreading the gospel to the early churches. As you know, many books in the New Testament are his letters to these churches.
The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. Jesus himself said that. As believers, we know we are in the flesh but walk by faith. It's difficult for a nonbeliever to understand this. Just as it was for us at one time. We forgive others in order to be forgiven. And love those who persecute us. That's about all we can do.
I, too, have been led by the flesh and had to be humbled and apologize on these forums. Then again, I'm quite outspoken to a fault at times.
But thank you for sharing your powerful testimony.
