Summary: Walking in the Spirit, Not Flesh!!
A SPIRIT WALK
Wouldn’t it be nice if everyone in every church
Could get along with each other in a Christ like manner.
Or better still – wouldn’t it be nice if every church got
Together and prayed for each other (the Baptist for the
Pentecostal and the Methodist and so forth) Man that
Would totally drive the Devil Mad now wouldn’t it??
If We can have and keep a SPIRIT WALK everything
Will go so much better for us all. We must walk
In the spirit with JESUS CHRIST.
STAND AND READ 16-26
VS 18 SAID WHAT?
If ye be led by the spirit ye are not under the Law.
We are not supposed to be trying to play tug of war
With the Spirit of the Lord!!! We as Christians are
To be led by the Spirit…
When we yield to the HOLY SPIRIT. This turns
us away from the yearnings and sinfulness
of daily life..
Us Christians will decide if we will be led by the
Flesh or by the Spirit….
If We are led by Fleshly Motives
Then we are lacking A Whole LOT….
If we are led by the SPIRIT then we are
Not under the Law…
I’VE PREACHED IT BEFORE AND I WILL
PREACH IT AGAIN – IT ALL STARTS WITH
FAITH IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
Let me talk about the WORKS OF THE FLESH
Which are evidence!!!
ADULTERY – I THINK We all know what this one means (keep in mind its within the bonds of marriage)
And is one of the ten commandments
FORNICATION – Having a mate or having sexual
Relations outside the bonds of marriages
UNCLEANNESS – Is to be Defiled – Foul – Unfit
Back in the old Testament The Priest was to teach
The people the difference.
LASCIVIOUSNESS – OR Licentiousness – un-disciplined and un – restrained behavior, especially a flagrant disregard of sexual restraints or just plain
IDOLATRY – Is not only the worship of a graven
Image (which is against the 10 commandments)
But putting our main affection upon something other
WITCHCRAFT – OR SORCERY – Occult practices
Fortune telling – common among the Pagan Nations
Pagans are followers of False gods
They delight in sensual pleasures and material things
WORKS OF THE FLESH cont.
HATRED – Strong dislike – Disregard – Indifference
Toward someone or something.
VARIANCE – Strife or Discord.
EMULATIONS – This is very plainJEALOUSY
WRATH – The personal manifestation of God’s
Holy Moral Character in Judgement against Sin
Or Gods anger against Sin.
STRIFE – Selfish Ambition
SEDITIONS – Rebellion against authority of a
State or other lawful Government
HERESIES – False Doctrines or Teachings which
Denies one of the Foundational beliefs of the Church.
ENVYINGS – A feeling of resentment and Jealousy
MURDERS – To KILL
DRUNKENNESS – Over Drinking
REVELLINGS – Over Eating or Gluttony.
Verse 21 tells us;
I have also told you in time past that they which do
Such things SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM
GAL 6:8 SAYS – For He that Soweth
To his Flesh REAP CORRUPTION: BUT
He that soweth to the spirit shall of the Spirit
Reap life everlasting!!
Now the whole point of tonights Sermon A SPIRITWALK.
1st corinthians 10;13 says
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to esape that ye may be able to bear it!!!
Not that God will allow us to escape temptation but
Land safely on the other side of it!!!
SO WHAT IS OUR HIGHEST PEAK IN A SPIRITWALK????
We shouldn’t want anything that the devil has to offer.
His interest rates are very High!!!!!
Are you willing to buy now and pay later from the Devil??
I don’t know about you but I’m not paying the Devil’s interest rates!!!!I’m not paying him nothing!!!!!
We should want everything that the Lord has to
offer us. The Lord offers us the Fruits of the Spirit to assist
us in our SPIRITWALK.
The Fruits of the spirit are the signs of God’s
presence in your heart!!!
We have to learn how the peace of God can
flow out of our Spirit!!!!!
Gal chapter 5;22&23 – Begins with
Love - We must be on guard at all times because Satan
Will steal our Fruits
LOVE - Is the Peace Willing to give without
Thought of Return.
JOY - is the Gladness of Heart
PEACE - is our mind being free of worry and fear
Are you starting to see why we must always
Be on guard—HANG WITH ME NOW
LONG SUFFERING – Our patience in bearing anger
