 The fatal mistake of thousands ~ Philpot

The fatal mistake of thousands is to offer
unto God the fruits of the flesh—instead of
the fruits of the Spirit.

Fleshly holiness,
fleshly exertions, fleshly prayers,
fleshly duties,
fleshly religious forms,
fleshly zeal—
these are what men consider good works,
and present them as such to God.

But well may He "who is of purer eyes than to
behold evil, and cannot look on iniquity", say
to all such fleshly workers, "If you offer the blind
for sacrifice, is it not evil? And if you offer the
crippled and the diseased, is it not evil?"

All that the flesh can do is evil, for "every
imagination of man's heart is only evil continually;"
and to present the fruits of this filthy heart to the
Lord of hosts, is "to offer defiled food upon His altar."

A broken heart,
a contrite spirit,
a tender conscience,
a filial fear of God,
a desire to please Him,
a dread to offend the great God of heaven,
a sense of the evil of sin,
a desire to be delivered from sin's dominion,
a mourning over our repeated backslidings,
grief at being so often entangled in our lusts and passions,
an acquaintance with our helplessness and weakness,
simplicity and godly sincerity,
a hanging upon grace for daily supplies,
watching the hand of Providence,
a singleness of eye to the glory of God,
—these are a few of the fruits of the Spirit.

I pray that God would work these in me, with the grace to sustain them.

Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.

Oh may our sacrifices to God be of an broken and contrite heart, that He will not despise.

 Re: works of the flesh, or the Spirit

These words caught my attention right away. They are the very sins I struggle with.

This is what I seek God to work within me:

Thank you for posting this, Mike.
