This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

Thank you, Mrs. Q... one of the most powerful passages... and I do mean "power." Our church services were cancelled because of 10" of snow today so Don and 2 of our children had the blessing of shoveling instead. This would be a great passage to do as a family this morning. Blessings to you!ReplyDelete
I love these verses in Galatians 5. In a few short sentences, Paul lays out the distinct differences between the Christian and the world. Thank you for posting it!ReplyDelete
"If we live in the Spirit, let us walk in the Spirit". Amen, Emily.ReplyDelete

These truthgul words of scripture are not just good to meditate on Sunday (e.g., The Lord's Day), but on every day of our week.
