The Holy Spirit tells us,
“Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry” (Colossians 3:5), knowing that we have a problem with these things.
Our members on the earth, that is, our bodies, have tendencies that take us away from our spiritual devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, in our minds we have to put those desires to death. Repeat that to yourself, and see whether it helps.
