Life in the spirit

  1. 1. Galatians 5: 16-25
  2. 2. HOW WE ONCE LIVED AND HOW WE NOW LIVE  A conflict, a tension.  For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit was is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not know what you want. (Verse 17)
  3. 3. THE LAW CANNOT CONTROL OR CHANGE OUR OLD NATURE  It is not law on the outside but love on the inside.  Not simply a divine influence but a Divine Person  We cannot simply will to overcome the flesh.
  4. 4. THE SOLUTION  Not to pit the will against the flesh but to surrender our will to the Spirit.  What you feed grows; what you starve dies.  Do not dwell on the seeds that Satan sows but feed on the Word of God.
  5. 5. CHARACTERISTICS OF THE OLD NATURE Sensual sins. Superstitious sins. Social sins.
  6. 6. I HAVE SINNED – AM I THEN DISQUALIFIED FROM ENTERING THE KINGDOM OF GOD?
  7. 7. I HAVE SINNED – AM I THEN DISQUALIFIED FROM ENTERING THE KINGDOM OF GOD?  Those who LIVE like this will not enter the Kingdom of God.  Those who PRACTICE these things.  Not an act of sin but a habit of sin.
  8. 8. THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT  Fruit grows out of life not out of works – the life of the Spirit within.  Work has to do with effort, labour, strain and toil.  Fruit has to do with love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  The beautiful graces of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
  9. 9. THE BEAUTIFUL GRACES OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN OUR LIVES.  Changing us from glory to glory into the likeness of Jesus!  The legalist might be able to boast that he is not guilty of adultery or murder – but can anyone see the beautiful graces of the Holy Spirit in his life?
  10. 10. SIMEON – LUKE 2: 25-32  Verse 25 Righteous, devout and waiting.  Verse 25 The Holy Spirit was upon him.  Verse 26 The Holy Spirit revealed to him.  Verse 27 The Holy Spirit moved him.  Verses 29-32 He received a revelation and spoke a prophecy.
  11. 11. EXODUS 33:16  “What else will distinguish me and your people from all the other people on the face of the earth?”
  12. 12. EXODUS 33:16  “What else will distinguish me and your people from all the other people on the face of the earth?”  If you presence does not go with us, do not send us up from here because what else will distinguish me and your people from all the other people on the face of the earth?
