Ruling Your Spirit: Bitterness
11 September 2022 PM – Proverbs 25:28 – RuleSpirit22 – Scott Childs
Introduction: Read Proverbs 25:28. If we do not learn to rule our spirits, we will have no defence against the devil. Our Christian lives will be weak and unfruitful. God has given each of us a spirit, soul and body. The Holy Spirit desires to commune with our spirit, which then communes with our soul, made up of our mind, will and emotions. Our soul controls our body. When our spirit yields to our flesh or the devil instead of to the Holy Spirit, we do wrong. If our spirit yields to the Holy Spirit, we will do right. We must choose to let the Holy Spirit control our spirit.
Transition: This evening we are going to consider the problem of bitterness and learn how God wants us to rule it.
