Rom. 8:8 “Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.”
We should recognize the fact that our old nature (flesh) will never change its character. All the wickedness of which it is capable today, it will be capable of tomorrow. All of your attempts in pleasing God by your flesh will only have one result – a hopeless failure. This is because you are trying to do the impossible!
Pig will always be a pig. Even if you change its environment. Even if you will educate it, bath it, dress it, give human food to it, but whenever it sees a mud, it will always go back to its nature which is to wallow in the mud. The flesh within you has never ceased to love sin, and never will. Given a chance, it will always want to get back to where it belongs – to wallow in the mud! Our character does not change for the better by improving the flesh, but by allowing it to be replaced by the Holy Spirit. Only the Holy Spirit can render its pernicious appetites inoperative.
