Spirit Freedom

Galatians 5:16-26

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.  Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” Galatians 5:1

 

Main Idea: You live a life of true freedom when you choose to be guided by the Holy Spirit every day in every way.

v  When you choose to follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit you have power over your fleshly desires. 5:16-18

Warning: Following your fleshly desires leads to loss of eternal reward. 5:19-21

v  When you choose to follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit spiritual fruit is produced in your life. 5:22-23

Reminder:  Knowing your position in Christ makes it possible for you to have power over your fleshly desires. 5:24

v  When you choose to follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit your relationships are healthy. 5:25-26

Application:

  • How are you doing in allowing the Holy Spirit to guide you in all of life?
  • Is your flesh getting the better of you in daily living?
  • Is there something you need to confess now that is hindering you from following the guidance of the Holy Spirit?

Memorize: I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.  The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20
