EQUIPING OF THE SAINTS

EQUIPPING THE SAINTS

Galatians 5:16-17 “So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature.”

The Scene: A basket of fruit, symbolic of the fruit of the Holy Spirit. (See Galatians 5:22)

God has given His people the fruit of the Holy Spirit, so that they may have the tools to help us live a more godly life in this world. Everyone’s spirit is in conflict with their sinful nature, so we have been given God’s nature to overcome the world.

Galatians 5:25 “Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.”

John 15:1-3 “My Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you.”

God’s way of helping us is to mature His people spiritually to become more like Him each day.
