1 Peter 4:1

1 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;kjv

Daniel would go without food for several days and was sometimes seen to physically inflict pain on himself. His reason was "anyone who would conquer sin must suffer the flesh". His fasting was not to seek God's face but was penance. Unknown to him, he was only opening his life to elemental spirits. His error was that he did not fully understand that Christ suffered for us so that we would not suffer for our sins; he did not fully understand the message of the gospel.

We crucify (suffer) the flesh by denying self and walking in the Spirit.

When your flesh feels like doing something and you chose to walk in the spirit and not do that thing, you are crucifying(suffering) the flesh. The flesh wars against the spirit and the spirit against the flesh. Any man that will walk in the spirit must crucify the flesh.

We should arm ourselves with the mind to always crucify the flesh and walk in the spirit. "walk in the spirit and you won't fulfill the lust of the flesh"- Gal 5:6. Crucifying the flesh and walking in the spirit is the only way you can truly conquer sin. That is what today's Bible text is telling us.

Go into today determining to walk in the spirit and enjoy the spirit life. Crucify the flesh by refusing to follow its dictates. Following its dictates only leads to death while walking in the spirit leads to life and peace (see Rom 8:6).

Confession: I have the mind of Christ; I am crucifying the flesh and taking up my cross daily, I am walking in the spirit and pleasing God in all regards. Amen
