Title: Why Believers Struggle

Text: Ephesians 2:1-6

I. They See Only from the carnl veiw.

    EVERYTHING revolves around them. Their wants, likes, and needs. We live in a world of our own even though we have been quickened and made alive we still think in terms of what I need, what I want, and what I like in order to satisfy the flesh.

    I Corinthians 3:1-3 We need to refocus and put God in the center. Romans 11:36 Sitting in heavenly places where everything is about Him and we begin to see things as God sees them. Col. 1:9

    He quickened us and put life in us and RAISED us UP. in the Realm of the Spirit we see things from Gods' point up view we see what has happened and why what is happening now and what will come. We must see and live from God's point of view. 

II. They live after the flesh and claim to live after the Spirit.

    They try to make the carnal man spiritual which is the enemy of God. John 3:6,7; Romans 8:1 You can't live in sin and just get by. If they do not bother you then you are in big trouble. 

    Life in the Spirit is only attained by the crucifixion of the flesh. Dead TO sin. Galatians 2:20

    2 cor 5:15 gal 5:24
