Since We Live by the Spirit

November 13, 2022 Speaker: Jay Pound Series: Good Since

Scripture: Galatians 5

The Human Condition:

Post-Fall/Pre-Torah (Gn. 6.5)

Post-Torah/Pre-Pentecost (Dt 30, Gal. 3.23-24)

Post-Pentecost/Pre-Resurrection (Gal. 5.16)


(Child + Parent)

(Mature Adult)

Broken Moral Judgment/Will

Broken Moral Judgment/Will

New Creation/Regeneration

No “Guardian”

Guardian (Torah)

A partner (Spirit) not a guardian (Torah)

Self-destruction, enslaved to sin & in constant danger

Protection and instruction, not free but not in danger

Full Maturity - released to thrive


Since we live by the Spirit…

  • Do not return to a life dominated by sin (Gal. 5.16-17)
  • Do not return to life under the law (5.18)
  • Do walk in the freedom and power of the Spirit (5.24-25)

If we live by the Spirit, we will not only live free from the power of sin (19-21), we will live as partners in the redeeming work of God.
