Life By the Spirit
Scripture: Galatians 5:13–5:26
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.
