I Pet. 3:18
Spirit: loves adventure
Flesh: hates mystery
In case one of you can't get your lesson together, here are my notes should this be a help. I've never thought about posting them; but here 'tis. The idea is the battle persisting in trying to live an active spirit-evaluating life from within the confines of the flesh-bod'. Just as sin has been watered down, so has salvation. We can't reach the depths of either. Sin is worse than we credit and salvation is surer than we can interpret.
Isa. 50 is a neat text in that when it goes dark there are those plenty willing by faith to take God's hand and be led to safety. Others, non-faithers, won't accept the hand of God but will say, "No, I can strike a match, light a torch, and see my way clear" without God. The Spirit loves to operate where it can't see, but trusts God to provide while the flesh hates mystery and wants to know exactly how things will work before he sets out of his trek. One is acceptable to God; the other is labeled of Satan....Mt. 16:23.
