There is no shortcut to a holy life. The Bible is clear about the role of the Spirit and the responsibility we have to fight our sinful nature. Find out what the deeply rooted conflict between the flesh and the Spirit and the necessity of understanding our relationship to sin. As followers of Jesus Christ, we are neither bound by the law nor free to do as we like. The Holy Spirit is at work guiding us on the path of obedience; we are called to walk according to His leading.  ~ Alistair Begg

New Testament:
Galatians 5:13-26
  

But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. ~ Galatians 5:18-24

          
Summary:
Keep in Step with the Spirit

Are you standing free? You know, your freedom in Christ is a costly thing. It’s not cheap. It costs Jesus his life. In him you stand free.

The yoke of the law has been removed. Another question, are you falling? To fall from grace does not mean to lose one salvation. It means to move out of the sphere of grace into the sphere of law. It means to substitute regulations for a personal relationship with the Lord.

Are you running on course or has false teaching gotten you on a detour? This passage we’ll read is just full of questions. Are you being leavened? You know, Jesus used leaven to picture sin like yeast. False teaching is introduced quietly.

It grows secretly, and soon it affects every part of your life. Are you serving others? Freedom brings with it the responsibility to serve. Love motivates us to fulfill the law of God. And are you walking in the Spirit?

Life, not law, changes behavior. And as you yield to the Spirit Christ’s, life is manifest in the fruit of the Spirit. Law works by compulsion from without. But grace works by compassion from within.
