Scripture Verse Of The Week ‘Galatians 5 verses 24 and 25’


‘Galatians 5 verse 24 and 25’

V24 “Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with it’s passions and desires. V25 If we live by the Spirit. we must also follow the Spirit”.

And from the Message Bible:

V24 “Among those who belong to Christ, everything connected with getting our own way and mindless responding to what everyone else calls necessities is killed off for good– crucified”.

V25 “Since this kind of life we have chosen, the life of the Spirit, let us make sure that we do not just hold it as an idea in our heads or a sentiment in our hearts, but work out it’s implications in every detail of our lives”.

The verse before these are speaking about the Fruits of The Holy Spirit. To walk in the Spirit means more than to have head knowledge, or or some fancy fad tickling our hearts, It is The power of the Presence of The Holy Spirit around our lives, enclothing our lives, permeating our lives.

When we think of the children’s story of the emperor with New Clothes, we cant con anybody into thinking we are walking in the Spirit when we are not, there needs to be evidence of our walking.

Lets look back at Galatians from the Message Bible: verses 22 and 23:

“But what. happens when we live God’s way? He brings gifts to our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard–things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force our way in life, able to marshal and direst our energies wisely”.

I am sorry to say this does not come from pew sitting, it come from a revelation, and Assurance of who we are In Christ Jesus {Our Lord and Our Friend], Once we know that for ourselves, even sitting on a pew becomes exciting.

God Bless.
