Live by the Spirit

August 14, 2016 Speaker: Harry Long Series: Galatians

Scripture: Galatians 5:16–5:26

Live by the Spirit
and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.

1. The Christian has two natures in conflict with each other. v. 16-18
        - The old nature, the “flesh,” the sinful nature.
                What are its “desires”?
        - The new nature, the work of the Spirit.
                What are its “desires”?

2. The two natures produce different things: v. 19-23
        - The acts of the sinful nature vs. the fruit of the Spirit.

3. How do you change? v. 24-25
        - Realize your calling as a Christian.
        - Ask yourself why you do what you do.
        - The Spirit produces the fruit.
                Producing fruit is gradual, powerful, internal, and symmetrical.
        - Which nature do you feed?
