Mark Moore continues in our series “A Journey Into Captivity – A Study of Galatians” focusing on Mortification.

There is a truth of life that applies in many areas, and that by limiting our freedom we are more free.

We are most free when we are most dead.

Mark highlighted three practices and challenged us to take on one of them this week as a way of combatting the flesh:

Fasting—Skip three meals one day this week. This is a sacrifice of pleasure. This counters the lust of the flesh.

Generosity—give something away that is important to you. This is a sacrifice of material goods. This counters the lust of the eyes. (Story of the Pulpit Commentary)

Service—Dedicate 3 hours of your week to offer a skill you have that you could use to Love the Ville in a tangible way this week. This is a sacrifice of time. This counters the boastful pride of life.

“Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires, and greed, which is idolatry.” – Colossians 3:5
