Topic: Understanding sin
Sub-Topic: Living by the Spirit & dealing with sin

Thank you to everyone who has read my series. I do this because I love it, I love helping others, and because we are in the last days. Please continue to read and to learn about your faith so continue to grow and become better. I thank you, Jesus, for allowing us to learn about your word Lord Jesus, please help us to take the word of God tonight into our everyday lives to be able to live as we should. In the Almighty name of Jesus, we pray, Amen.

Tonight we are going to continue into learning about sin. This will be an interesting post so pay close attention. Without further ado, let us take a look at scripture for tonight. If you do not have a Bible I recommend you follow along with me so you can see it for yourself.

Galatians 5:16-18 16 “So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other so that you are not to do whatever you want. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law”. The bible says to live by the spirit not by your natural mind, why? Because the flesh is in conflict and is wanting to desire what is contrary to the spirit. As true children in Christs, we are to follow the spirit, not our flesh. The one thing I want you to understand about the flesh is that the flesh wants to take you out, it seeks to destroy you and to keep you from obeying God. When you praise and seek to gratify the pleasures of the flesh you are allowing the devil to come in to take over and the devil himself becomes your father. In order to better deal with sin, you have to live by the spirit.

Galatians 5:19-21, 19 “The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity, and debauchery;  idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God”. Understand what it means to live by the flesh, To live by the flesh is to be in a lifestyle such as this scripture. This scripture literally says who will not enter into the gates of heaven by during such things and live by such ways. If you live like this then it is not okay.

By this scripture, Can you understand what it means to live by the flesh? To live by the flesh is to be in a lifestyle such as this scripture? This scripture literally says who will not enter into the gates of heaven by during such things and be living by such ways. If you live like this then it is not okay.
Galatians 5:22-26, 22 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentlenesses, and self-control. Against such things, there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other”. This scripture is pretty self-explanatory, it answers you question about how to live in the spirit. Living in the spirit gives you a good feeling, it allows to show others that you are not living by the flesh but is living by the spirit.
