Galatians 5:16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.


You didn’t think God would not give us a contrasting verse did you? Paul now is talking to Christians. When we bite and devour each other we are walking in the flesh, the remedy for that is to confess your sin’s  and get forgiveness from anyone you have offended, go into your closet and pray. We have to walk according to the Spirit and not the flesh, the flesh is at enmity with the Spirit. Ask God to give you the grace to not walk according to the flesh, and to walk according to the Spirit.  It is a daily thing we have to do, it’s not easy.  Many times we jump to conclusions, we need to wait on the Lord. We have two ears and one mouth,  be quick to listen and slow to speak.  The word is the lamp unto our feet, and the light unto our path; taking us as a guide, who not only guides us into all truth, but in the way of holiness and righteousness.

And ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh; he does not say there shall be no flesh, nor any lust of the flesh in them if they walk spiritually; or that the flesh should not act and operate in them; or that they should do no sinful action; all which is only true of Christ. A christian cannot be in bondage to a particular sin, I am not saying that christians don’t sin but we need to keep our sin accounts short, don’t let your heart become hardened, and don’t let you love grow  cold. We need to always have thankful hearts, for what God has forgiven us for. In you own power you cannot walk according to the spirit pray God would give you a willing spirit, and a clean heart. that the God of God’s would be Glorified through our live’s.
