Scripture: Romans 8:12-14
Romans 8 says, “Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.” Selfish ambition comes from another spirit. Yielding to that is a way for satan to get his will established in the earth and impede God’s purpose. If we are going to be instruments to establish God’s will in the earth, the first thing we have to deal with and shed is selfish ambition. We have to be intentional and deliberate to submit our will under the leadership and authority of our Father, through the Holy Spirit. What is authored by the Holy Spirit becomes that which is eternal fruit. “For as many as our lead by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God.” Selfish motivations go under our feet!
