The Titanic was called the unsinkable ship. It was almost a world unto itself- luxurious, ornate, elegant, and majestic. The idea of it sinking was so unthinkable that they didn’t even provide enough lifeboats for the passengers. And then the unthinkable happened.
In the same way, this life is like the Titanic. We can get so captivated by its glitter that we don’t consider its end. No matter who you are, everything about the flesh is just a sinking ship. If you have any doubt about it, just attend a funeral. Therefore, if you know you’re on a sinking ship, what do you do? You get your eyes off the ship and off of its details. You get your life into the lifeboat. Scripture says that the way of the flesh is death, but the way of the Spirit is life. Salvation is the lifeboat of this life. And you dwell in it by living it in the Spirit. The flesh is sinking, so abandon the sinking ship and get aboard the Spirit. Live by the Spirit of God, and when the ship goes down, you’ll still be floating.
Today’s Mission – Today, evaluate your life. Abandon any area in which you are living in or relying on the flesh… Leave the flesh… Walk in the Spirit.
