Walk In The Spirit

Walk In The SpiritWalk In The Spirit

Galatians 5:13-15 You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge

the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. 14 For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one

command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” 15 If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be

destroyed by each other.

Jesus wants us to:
• Serve one another
• Humble ourselves
• Love all people around you

How many churches have you been to that mimics verse 15?

“15 If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.”

Paul tells us:
• In your freedom do not sin
• Love is the most important thing
• Be on guard of human tendency to bite each other
Galatians 5:16
So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.

Galatians 5:16-17
16 So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the flesh

desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each

other, so that you are not to do whatever you want
The battle going on within us
• They are in conflict with one another
• Prevent you from doing what you think you should do
• Those who live for the flesh cannot please God

We are called to walk in the Spirit and He is going to deal with the sinful desires
Romans 8:5-8
5 Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who

live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. 6 The mind governed by the

flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. 7 The mind governed by the flesh is hostile

to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. 8 Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please

God.
To overcome the flesh we need to “Walk in the Spirit”
What does it mean to “walk in the Spirit?”
2 Corinthians 10:1-5
By the humility and gentleness of Christ, I appeal to you—I, Paul, who am “timid” when face to face

with you, but “bold” toward you when away! 2 I beg you that when I come I may not have to be as bold as I

expect to be toward some people who think that we live by the standards of this world. 3 For though we live in

the world, we do not wage war as the world does.
4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine

power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the

knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
A few things that we can do to help us walk in the Spirit

See John 15:4-5
“Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. 5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”

It is not a work we do:
• The victory comes from Him
• The fruit comes from Him
• We get to choose to walk in Him
