WALKING IN THE SPIRIT!
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit (Galatians 5:25).
Every Christian needs to walk in the Spirit. Walking in the Spirit is to live in the Spirit and allow the Holy Spirit to take charge and full control of your life. Until you yield yourself fully to the Holy Spirit, you can never walk in the Spirit. In the opening text, the Bible tells us that if we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Walking in the Spirit is the only way by which a Christian can experience total freedom forever.
The life of the flesh and the life of the Spirit are contrary and in total enmity to each other. You cannot be in the flesh and at the same time be in the Spirit. Anyone who is in the Spirit cannot gratify the desires of the flesh. That is why the Bible says in Galatians 5:16, “I say then: walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.” When a Christian walks in the Spirit, he can never fulfill the desires of the flesh. Of course, walking in the Spirit is for one to humbly submit self to the will and leading of the Holy Spirit always.
In fact, for one to walk in the Spirit, he is expected to exercise his faith. Without faith in God, you cannot walk in the Spirit. That is the reason why the Bible says, “For without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6). Every Christian who really wants to walk with God and please Him in everything he does must learn to walk in the Spirit by faith alone. Take note of the fact that God is Spirit; therefore, learn to worship Him in spirit and truth (John 4:24).
Daily Tip: Every Christian is expected to walk in the Spirit by exercising his faith in God alone. Shalom!
Golden Text: For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish (Galatians 5:17).
