Daily Meditations: War Between The Conscience And The Ego

Must read

The worst possible combination you could ever find in a man is to have a weak will and a strong ego.

Man is an amphibian. Half spirit, half animal.

Your will comes from your spirit man while your ego is from the animal part of you.

Whichever you feed will determine the power that is strong or weak. Galatians 6:8 puts it best by saying “Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life”.

Your spirit, which will manifest itself sometimes through your will and sometimes through your conscience needs to be fed a regular diet of The Word of God or it will be overpowered by your ego.

So, when you find yourself getting offended and saying to yourself ‘who is he?’ or ‘how dare you?’, it is time to check yourself, the animal in you may have sue zed control from the spirit in you. Why? Because the answer to the question ‘who are you?’ is that without God we are nothing.

Even Jesus, the Son of God said “I can of my own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not my own will, but the will of the Father who has sent me”-John 5:30.
