That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. John 3.6.  

Who truly recognizes what the flesh is? Who understands what is meant by dealing with the flesh? or judging of the flesh? Many people deem victory over sin to be the hallmark of perfection. Yet they do not know that there is the flesh which sins! According to the Scriptures, “the flesh” is condemned by God. It is something with which God is most displeased. The flesh is everything we have through birth.  

Whatever we have by birth is of the flesh, and includes not only sin and uncleanness and corruption but also natural goodness, ability, zeal, wisdom and power. A most difficult lesson to be learned in a believer’s life is for that one to know his own flesh. The Christian must be brought through all kinds of failures and deprivations before he knows what his flesh is.
