Live by the Holy Spirit

Live by the Spirit. Walk by the Spirit. Be led by the Spirit.

Galatians 6:16-25

16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. 17 For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law. 19 Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, 21 envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 24 Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. 26 Let us not become boastful, challenging one another, envying one another.

  1. As a layman, my views tend to be oversimplistic.

    The interesting part of this verse, to me, is “be led by the spirit”.

    I believe the following verses describe the coming of the holy spirit, in the flesh, as Jesus.

    Isaiah 30:20 And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner anymore, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers:

    Isaiah 30:21 And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

    SECONDLY

    The, wife of our youth, referred to in Malachi 3, would seem to refer to the holy spirit also,

    FINALLY

    Job 42:3 Job appears to be talking about the holy spirit when be states;
    “Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge.”
