The Flesh and the Spirit - (28/4/2013) - Rev Smith
Bible Readings - Galatians 5:16-25
The Galatians lived in a very promiscuous society - and today we can recognise that our society is the same.
We are in the midst of a conflict. There are two forces pulling us in two different directions. A sinful nature pulling us back to our old life and then the Holy spirit challenging us against our sin.
What does our sinful nature lead us into?
Not just looking at sexual sin but also religious sins like idolatry where we put something in the place that God should occupy in our lives.
What happens when Jesus saves us?
The transforming power of the Gospel that produces the fruit of the spirit. The ultimate test of the Spirit's presence in our lives is our character.
He utterly transforms us. He takes selfish, self-centred, prideful, lustful, critical, miserable people and puts love, joy and peace in our hearts. Patience, kindness, goodness into our relationships and faithfulness, gentleness and self control into our backbones - that is our wills.
