We begin a series on the seldom-considered subject of mortification of sin by looking at this important verse. We spend time examining the following issues:

  • What is meant by ‘the flesh’?
  • What is meant by living ‘according to the flesh’?
  • What is meant by the statement that those who live according to the flesh must die?

We see how serious sin is and how subtle - how easily it can entangle us, how it wars against our souls and seeks to destroy us. We are encouraged to recognize the sin that is in us and by all means to put it to death so we may serve the Lord more wholeheartedly.
