Text: "Walk by the Spirit and ye shall
not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the

Spirit against the flesh; for these are con
trary the one to the other; that ye may not
do the things that ye would." Gai. 5:l'i-17.

ting of a war
drama. The oppos
ing forces are seen
drawn up in order
for the battle. The
sound of conflict is
heard, and now one
side and then the
other is seen to
is the issue and
back and forth the
strife is waged.
Such is the picture
which Paul draws
in our text The flesh warring against
the Spirit and the Spirit against the
flesh. The one at eternal enmity with
the other. It is the inner conflict, the
place where the most desperate warfare
man may know is bitterly and relent
lessly carried on. The heart is the bat
tleground. The flesh, the physical life,
with all its natural desires and tenden
cies, is on one side with Self enthroned
as ruler and captain. The Soul, with its
capacity for God, is on the other with
the Spirit enlisted as its captain. Be
tween these two, the Self and the Soul,
there are irreconcilable differences, for
the one Is contrary to the other. If Self
rules supreme, the Soul suffers. If the
Soul is to gain the supremacy, it must do
so at the sacrifice of Self and the flesh.
There cannot be any compromise,
no alliance, no truce between the two.
It must be conflict from start to finish.
if the Soul is to develop and grow in the
grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus
Christ. In the seventh chapter of
Romans we see Paul waging the bitter
w arfare, and crying out as the powerful
enemy, Self, deals hard blows and wins
victory over the Soul: "Oh, wretched
man, that I am! Who shall deliver me
out. of the body of thi3 death?" But the
victory comes as he learns to fight In
Jhrist's strength, and to abide in His
presence, for He exclaims, in answer to
the question he has just propounded:
"I thank God through Jesus Christ our
Lord." So then we have for our consid
eration, first, Self enthroned, and the
Soul enslaved; second, the Soul's awak
ening; third, the Soul's enemy revealed;
fourth, the conflict; and fifth, victory
and its reward.
dark hues he can find. He tries to so
distort and twist the truth that yoa will
turn from the voice of God and the plead
ing of the Soul. Self fears in the pres
ence of God. He wants not that God
should rule over your life. He himself
wants to be it3 only master. And how
long is the struggle sometimes! How
grievous is the process before man will
yield and receive God's gift of eternal
life. Dear friend, out of Christ, fight no
longer against God. Let God's work cf
grace be wrought in you! Let your Soul
be awakened by the touch of the Spirit!
THE Soul's Enemy Revealed. The
dweller in the valley has a nar
rowed vision. He can see the famil
iar objects which surround his dwell
ing, but he cannot take in the extent
of verdant fields and woodland which
stretch off in the distance. He is too
nearly on a level with that which he
wishes to see. But let him clamber
up the mountain side until he gains a
vantage point way up above the fruit
ful and beautiful valley, and behold
the whole scene is spread out before
him like a great panorama. So it i3
with man. From man's level let him
view man and his vision is limited. He
can see man only in his nearer aspect.
He cannot see him as God does. But
let him rise on the wings cf the quick
ened soul to the mountain top of God's
presence, and he will then find a new
picture spreading itself before him. It
has been said that man's greatest en
emy is self. But how few really realize
or believe it. And yet it is true, and
if man will only let God touch his
eyes and open them so that he may see
clearly, he will realize that the natural
man is at enmity with God. He will
begin to understand what is implied in
our text when it says: 'For the flesh
lusteth against the Spirit, and the
Spirit against the flesh; for these are
contrary the one to the other." And
until Self is revealed as the enemy of
the Soul, it cannot be expected that
man will seek to bring it into subjec
tion. This Is the reason so many Chris
tians live on such a low sensual plane.
This is the reason why they argue them
selves into the belief that many world
ly pleasures and indulgences are right.
They have not yet sighted the enemy.
They have not yet let God reveal to
them that the thing that must be over
come first is the natural man and the
desires of the flesh.

He wants no restrictions thrown about

and that is Self, and the Soul is kept In
bondage. He is given liberties only
which will not endanger heir or re
strict him in the realization and enjoy
ment of that which he desires. Self is
a materialist He refuses to believe any
thing except ths.t which he can see, and
feel and handle. He centers his joys
and hopes and desires in this life, and
bids the Soul join in the "eating, the
drinking and the merrymaking, for to
morrow we die. Self is willing to con
cede everything else but the throne to
the Soul. If it may but reign supreme
Self is willing and anxious to gratify the
longings and aspirations of the Soul.
Self is a clever diplomat and he nego
tiates terms and dictates policies which
seem to meet the higher demands of the
Soul, but which do not in any way im
peril Self's dominion over the life. Self
wants to rule and Self does rule in somo
form or another, unless the Soul has
been aroused to a sense of its rights, and
its possibilities in Christ Jesus.
THE Soul's Awakening. Every man
has within himself, in the inner self
which is called the Soul, a capacity for
God. The multitude of religions which
claim their followers throughout the
world, from the remote regions where
savagery reigns to the lands where civ
ilization has wrought her highest arte,
attest the fact that man is seeking after
something to gratify and satisfy this
yearning of the Soul. But capacity for
God is not possession of Gcd. Becauts
I feel towards God, does not prove that
have God as an inner and satisfying
portion. The Soul is kept in the dark
even while, it is longing for something
which it has not. The Spirit of God is
striving with man. trying to lead him to
the light. The promise of Jesus was
that "when He theSpirit of truth is
come, He shall guide you into all the
truth. He will convict the world in
respect of sin. and of righteousness, and
of judgment" The Spirit is the voice of
God in the Soul seeking to turn man to
God and make hirn throw off the yoke
of Self. My friend, you have heard God's
message; down deep in your heart vou
know that God wants you to surrender
Self and let the Soul expand under the
possession of God. But you will not!
The convicting work of God's Spirit has
been felt. You know what you ought to
do, but Self argues with you. He draws
before you a picture of all you will have
to give up. He uses all the somber and
HE Conflict. It Is the duty of
an army when at war to discover
the enemy, and when discovered to en
gage the foe in battle. To refuse to
give battle is traitorous and invites dis
aster. It means that the fee will dic
tate terms and bring the cowardly army
into subjection. The Soul must give
battle to the forces which would cur
tail its liberties and bring it into sub
jection. It need not know defeat. It
may have glorious victory in Christ
Jesus if it will fight in His name and
with His strength. How strong the
will of the flesh and the desires of the
flesh are can only be realized as one
struggles against them, and seeks tc
overcome them. The Christian who
knows no struggle in his inner life, who
makes no fight against the flesh, with
its appetites and lusts, is living on a
very low plane. The Soul is being
ruled by Self. God demands a differ
ent attitude and condition from His
children. "We must fight, if we would
reign." Conflict is the order of life
for the Christian. He cannot escape it.
From the moment that he accepts Jesus
Christ as Saviour from sin, he must
fight against sin in its manifold forms
within and without. Paul in our text
is not preaching a doctrine of asceti
cism. He does not mean to imply that
every joy and pleasure which can be
experienced in this life are sinful. He
does not mean that the Christian is to
be gloomy, and to frown upon every
good thing in life. He dees not mean
this, for there is no good thing which
God would withhold from His children,
but he does mean that Self should not
rule, that a higher desire and purpose
should rule the life than the mere fleshly
desires and appetites. It must no
longer be "what I want," but "what
God wants for me." This brings the
strife. Here is where the conflict be
gins. It is the flesh warring against the
Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh.
rpHE Victory and Reward. The secret
1 of victory is revealed in the open
ing words of our text. The declara
tion that the "flesh lusteth against the
Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh.
is preceded by the wise admonition to
Walk in the Spirit," followed by ths
blessed assurance tuat if we do, we
"shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh."
The Soul is to look to the Spirit for
leadership, instead of Self. One of the
essentials to a victorious army is the
wise general who knows how to lead
his army so as to avoid all the am
buscades and pitfalls of the enemy,
and to select the vantage ground from
which to give battle. The Spirit will
lead unerringly. He knows the pit
falls, the dangers which lurk on every
hand, and it is only as the Christian
seeks to walk in the Spirit that he can
hope to escape disaster and defeat. The
victory Is more than half won when
we are marching obediently by the side
of our Saviour. When we go our own
way, when temptation leads us into ths
byways of sinful desire, then are we
almost sure to fall before the enemy.
We become an easy prey to the desires
of the flesh. Self has his way, and
the Soul is brought into subjection.
But ours may be victory, if we will
walk in the Spirit," if we "through
the Spirit will mortify the deeds of the
body." And the reward is worth the
conflict. The seven-fold reward may
be ours as promised in the secend and
third chapters of Revelation, ending in
the grand climax: "He that overcom
eth I will give to him to sit down with
