Spirit-Filled Living

Post by Evangelista_GP on Mon Aug 15, 2016 12:07 pm



‘When the Spirit has his way with us.’
Galatians 5:17

Always remember that no matter how long you walk with God, your carnal nature never improves. It never becomes more like Jesus, even over time. That’s why we’re told to ‘crucify’ it daily (see v. 24). Even the apostle Paul struggled with his lower nature: ‘We naturally love to do evil things … opposite from the things that the Holy Spirit tells us to do; and the good things we want to do when the Spirit has his way with us are just the opposite of our natural desires. These two forces within us are constantly fighting … to win control over us, and our wishes are never free from their pressures … But when the Holy Spirit controls our lives he will produce this kind of fruit in us: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control’ (vv. 17, 22-23 TLB). You ask, ‘Is such a lifestyle even possible?’ Yes, but you must do these four things: 1) Remember that Satan never takes a day off. You’re constantly in his cross hairs, so you must protect yourself with God’s Word and prayer. 2) Identify the sin you’re most prone to. The Bible says, ‘Lay aside … the sin which so easily ensnares’ (Hebrews 12:1 NKJV). Why? Because the area of your greatest weakness is the one in which you’ll constantly be attacked. 3) Keep your spiritual tank full. ‘The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace’ (Romans 8:6 NIV 1984 Edition). 4) Walk in God’s strength, not your own. Does the fight ever end? No, but God’s power plus your choice to obey and keep fighting, always lead to clear and lasting victory.

Prov 6-7, 1 Cor 12 (Bible in one year?)

Yes we cannot live a Holy life without the Holy Spirit. We have to dwell in it in every moment. Holiness does not come from us, it comes from God so if we don't nourish the Spirit we can forget about winning over the flesh. Everyday: prayers, read the bible, worship, praise and God's spirit in us will be lifted up.
Have a good week friends! Smile
