Living by the Spirit

Although our sinful nature will always be “prone” to wander from God, if we are willing to surrender to His Spirit, we do not have to be enslaved to the desires of the flesh. This is the thrust of Paul’s message in the texts for the week. You see, Christianity was not merely a set of theological beliefs that centered on Jesus but was also a “way” of life to be “walked.” Walking in this context implies behavior.

Walking or living by the Spirit implies a daily walk along the path that the Spirit dictates. It requires daily choices that side with the Spirit in all matters of decision and that starve our sinful self. Scriptural Pursuit discussion this week helps to understand how this lifestyle can be a reality in your life.
