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