Keep in Step with the Spirit

Keep in Step with the Spirit Galatians 5:16-25 Main Point: If you live each day in the leading of the Spirit then you will not live out of your flesh (sinful nature), but we must keep in step with the Spirit. Flesh (v.19 ‘sinful nature’) = my fallen nature apart from the power of the Spirit. Sin sampler – vss.19-21> (see also Mark 7:14-23) James 1:13-15 – my desires (flesh-corrupted) give birth to sin = death (separation from the life of God) Some sins become strongholds (it’s a spiritual issue!) How do I live each day in the leading of the Spirit? 1. Die to myself each day: Luke 9:23 Ask for forgiveness & cleansing: I John 1:9 2. Ask the Spirit within me to fill me (take control) and lead me throughout this day: verse 16 > Ephesians 5:18. *The fruit will be – verses 22-23. Notice last is self control – for emphasis & connection. 3. Listen for His Voice/Leading throughout the day & follow. verse 26 It’s hard/battle – We’ve got to be intentional! He wants to show us and lead us into the deep things of God But we have to move past the elementary things. I Corinthians 2:12-14
