Walk in Stride with the Spirit

Thoughts by Pastor Brad

The apostle Paul shares in Galatians 5:6, “Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.” Do you believe that Bible promise today? How can a person live an entire day, week, month, or even year not fulfilling the lust of the flesh or not sin? No one can accomplish this on their own strength since we are all sinners by our very nature. We open the gift of salvation in Christ by faith and God changes our hearts or minds to follow Him. We still must make choices everyday since we will battle against sin until Jesus comes back and changes us once and for all. If we confess our sins to the Lord and are cleansed by the blood of Jesus, the Holy Spirit can fill us with the ability to walk in stride with Him. If we are focused on the Lord and walk in stride with the Spirit, there is no room for sin to happen. The supernatural becomes natural. I know that this seems impossible and it is in our own strength, but with God all things are possible. Let’s focus on the Lord this morning and walk in stride with the Spirit through a life of surrender. Then we will bear the fruits of the Spirit that others can see and enjoy.
