Galatians 5:16- "So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh."
"Our sinful selves want what is against the Spirit. The Spirit wants what is against our sinful selves. The two are against each other, so you must not do what you please." (Galatians 5:17, ICB). It's interesting how effortlessly easy it is to do the wrong thing, but it takes a conscious effort to do what we know is right, why is that? It's because we were born into sin and it comes naturally, but Jesus was sent to pay the ultimate price for our sins; He came so that we could have a full life. (John 10:10) There is no greater love that that!
When we choose Christ as our Savior, we choos to live a NEW life; a life of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23). Living in the Spirit is right in the eye's of our Heavenly Father. It requires dedication, focus and giving up our selfish sinful feelings. It means dying to self DAILY, by renewing our mind, applying God's word to our lives, and letting the Spiriet lead you.
When you choose to live by the Spirit, you choose to EVOLVE!
