Philippians 3:3 KJV
For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.
• Worship God in the spirit
• Rejoice in Jesus Christ
• No confidence in the flesh
One of those things I am becoming more and more confident of is that I cannot be confident in any flesh. The flesh will fail us any and every time.
• We cannot trust our own flesh
• We cannot trust the flesh of those who say they are in the ministry
• We cannot trust the flesh of the lost
• We cannot trust the flesh of those who claim membership in our church
The flesh does nothing good and even when it appears to have done good, it's fruit is short lived and wild.
What we can do is rejoice in Jesus Christ. All confidence may be placed upon Him.
