Galatians 5:13-26 - Part 6 (Galatians 5:13-26)

Tim Douglass, March 24, 2019
Part of the Galatians series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Getting back to our discussion of the fruit of the Spirit after a bit of a medically induced break. We talked previously about love as the center-pin of all of these and especially about how hard it is to define love in words. God chose to demonstrate His love rather than explain it to us. The willingness of Jesus Christ to take on the burden of our sins and die for them is the greatest picture of love we can ever see. With that as the model for how we should love we have the beginning of a Christ-like life. The Spirit does more than instill in us the seed of that love, He also shapes many other part of our being. From love we move on to look at joy and peace.

Galatians 5:13-26

13For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. 14For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 15But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. 16This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulful the lust of the flesh. 17For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. 19Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another. (KJV)
