“I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh." Galatians 5:16 (NKJV)
We live in a sick and sinful world. Trying to live in a way that pleases God can sometimes seem impossible. Everywhere we look so many influences are attempting to steal our attention from Christ. From the content of our favorite shows to the billboards and ads we drive by every day; being righteous is a difficult lifestyle to maintain. But thank God that we have a divine Helper to walk this thing out with us.
Paul tells us that if we walk (live) in the Spirit, we won’t give in to our sinful desires. In the Holy Spirit God has given us all we need to live the Christian life effectively. He will direct you when you’re lost. He will tell you when you’re right and wrong. The Spirit will bring scriptures back to your memory, if you study your Bible diligently. Having a Christ centered church home and Christian friends help, but the Holy Spirit is the One who gives all we need to please God and live our best lives possible. The Father knew we could not do it on our own so he gave us a Helper. Wow, God really is love!
