Fear that arises when we put to death

“Just what do you think you are doing Dave?” From Kubrick’s 1968, 2001, A Space Odyssey.  Ray Ortlund ties in the clip below with Romans 8:13 and I have added Galatians 5:16,17.  Consider the fear involved when we put to death the deeds of 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.  Romans 8:13 ESV

But I say, walk by the Spirit and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of teh spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do.  Galatians 5:16,17 ESV
