Listen to the Sow the Word Teaching Ministry Radio Broadcast on Wednesdays at noon Eastern time on Heaven 98.3 or Heaven 1410 AM or with the iHeart app. We are continuing in the teaching “Overcoming Temptation”. Grow in God with Sow the Word where we are Sowing the Word into the heart of man.
I shared on the last post Matthew 26:41. This verse teaches us that we need to watch and pray that we do not fall into temptation. Watching and praying involves the whole of man. Man is a spirit, has a soul and both are housed in a physical body. When He says watch, we note from verse 40 that he is talking here about watching with your physical eyes. We have to be on the lookout for temptation . . . for the possibility of us being drawn away by our own lusts.
Prayer is different. By saying the word prayer, we know that the author is talking about spirit. We have to be spiritually aware. I like the use of the word sober. We have to know what is going on around us in the spirit and in the natural. Prayer is our communication with God and it has to be in the spirit because God is a spirit. His Word is spirit and it is life. We that worship God must worship Him in spirit. A life that is a tune to the Spirit of God is a life that can be lived abundantly in soul and body.
