Life by the Spirit

Galatians 5:16-26

16. So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.

17. For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want.

18. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law.

19. The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery;

20. idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions

21. and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

22. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

23. gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

24. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires.

25. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.

26. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.

Footnotes:

[a] Galatians 5:13 Or the flesh; also in verses 16, 17, 19 and 24


Today on All-Hallows-Eve Let us focus on the Holy Sprit instead of the Evil spirits, ghosts and goblins, etc... that are celebrated on this day.

Keep your focus on God and his will for your life!


God Bless You & Yours-
