Life By the Spirit

November 17, 2019 Speaker: Jay Pound Series: Losing My Religion

Scripture: Galatians 5:13–26

Recap: If the Galatians should not become “slaves” to the law of Moses (5.1), how then should they live? 

A False Dichotomy: Law of Moses or Lawlessness (5.1, 13)

A Middle Way: Walk by the Spirit (16-18)

  • Walk by the Spirit and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh (16)
  • If you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law (18)

Walking with the Spirit

  • Crucify the flesh with its desires (24)
  • Keep in step with the Spirit (25)

Conclusion: Set free to love (13, 14, 22)

Take Home Idea: If we walk by the Spirit, we will not be slaves to the Law or the flesh, but will be empowered to love.
