My personal study of Galatians 5, “The Spirit filled life”…

 Galatians 5, “The Spirit filled life”…
“24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. “

I. Observation (who, what, when, where, how, why) & Interpretation (defining Scripture using other Scripture):
A. We, Christians (those who believe & receive Christ) should/have/must…
• crucify (put to death our carnal nature, deny self) the flesh.
• walk (abide, live, & remain in, controlled by, yield to) the Spirit (God….the Father, the Son, & the Spirit).
B. God’s Word promises,…
• Those, who walk by/in/for/through God’s Spirit and Word, WILL produce good fruit (works)…love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, & self control.
• Those, who walk by/in/for/through the flesh (carnal nature), Will produce bad/evil fruit (works)…greed, cursing, covetousness, selfishness, etc..

II. Application: There’s problems when we, the church, walk in the flesh, not the Spirit or try to live the Christian (holy, consecrated, sanctified) life by works, and not by faith (applied belief) in God’s Spirit and Word. Therefore, when each Christian does not see God like characteristics in our life, but instead, carnal fruit, we are not walking in the “Light”, as we should. Therefore God commands His disciples (followers of Christ) to repent (Confess & do what is right/good fruit). “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive out sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” The application of these truths by GRACE is the Spirit filled- led life, which glorifies God.

III. Conclusion: By God’s GRACE (God’s riches at Christ’s expense) with Faith (applied belief) in God’s Spirit & Word, Christians WILL always produce good Fruit (works) that glorify God.

Prayer… Lord God give all Christians your abundant GRACE to walk the Spirit led life while “in the world but not of it”.
