We take a look at the relationship of the Holy Spirit and the believer.
What does the person that is being filled with, and led by, the Holy Spirit look like? Well, it will be quite evident by the way he treats and responds to others around them. Will they walk in love and grace, or be critical and harsh? We take a closer look at this in our study today.
As Christians, we have an internal battle going on – the flesh is fighting against the Spirit. How do we gain any ground in this fight? How do we see the fruit of the Spirit grow? We answer these questions and more in this study through Galatians 5:17-26.
We can often think that our ‘right living’ is achieving our favourable standing with God. The more that we do (or don’t do) the better we’ll be. But what really needs to be the focus is living in love. We haven’t been called to a works based relationship, but a loving relationship with Jesus. Loving God and loving others takes care of the law. As we see in our study, it brings us out from bondage and into freedom.
Paul has been in a battle for truth and has been showing his Galatian readers that the only way to be right with God is through faith in Jesus’ work done for you. And this chapter begins with an important statement to hold your ground in grace. Don’t be swayed. Stand fast!
Continuing our study through the book of Galatians.
In this study we look at what a life living under the law is like in comparison to a life that God has provided for us. One brings slavery and bondage, the other brings freedom and blessing!
We continue to look at the futility of the law and why it was never meant to make us right with God. He has provided a better way for us through faith in what He has accomplished for us. We take a look at this in our study here.
