What does it mean to Walk in the Spirit? Galations 5:16, 17 (NLT) So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves. The sinful nature wants to do evil, which is just the opposite of what the Spirit wants. And the Spirit gives us desires that are the opposite of what the sinful nature desires. These two forces are constantly fighting each other, so you are not free to carry out your good intentions. Theme Scripture Purpose Observation Balance Action Walking in the Spirit Keep our eyes on Jesus Hebrews 12:2 Viligant and watchful for obstacles Know and use the Word of God 2 Timothy 2:15 Filled and empowered by the Spirit The Goal Let God be the one in control
He knows us better than we know ourselves

When our spirit is in control, it co-operates with the Spirit of God Compents of Walking Purpose Observation Balance Action Get somewhere Watch out where you are going Stand upright Takes energy to get anywhere Spirit, Soul, Body We are created in Gods image Genesis 1:27 So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. What is the image of God? 1Thessalonians 5:23 Now may the God of peace himself Sanctify you completely and may your whole Spirit, Soul and Body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Flesh versus Spirit When we operate in the Flesh
Influenced and controlled by our thoughts (mind)
We do what feels right (emotions)
Make choices apart from God (will) Perfect alignment Spirit Soul Body Understands the truth.
Hears God's Voice Listens to the Spirit
Applies it to practical living Carries out the desires of the Spirit Why walk in the Spirit? Why should we walk in the Spirit? Benefits
Intimacy Power Protection Growth John 10:3-4 The gatekeeper opens the gate to him and the sheep recognize his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When He gets them all out, he leads them and they follow because they are familiar with His voice. Ephesians 6:10 God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. (The Message) Ephesians 6:16 - above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope Circumspectly - vigilant... watchful It takes faith to walk in the Spirit
Romans 10:17 So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ. Don't be naive as you walk this walk in the spirit. We have a real enemy who is roaming the earth seeking to destroy not only you personally and your faith but the potency of the church of Jesus Christ. The End or whats next? Be committed Choose to be led by the Spirit

Listen and obey

Why walk in the Spirit? Soul Mind Will Emotions Spirit Mind Will Emotions Ephesians 2:1-10 Once you were dead because of your disobedience and your many sins. You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil—the commander of the powers in the unseen world. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God. All of us used to live that way, following the passionate desires and inclinations of our sinful nature. By our very nature we were subject to God’s anger, just like everyone else. But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of his grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus. God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Walk in the Spirit Commit everything to God The difference between 'involvement' and 'commitment' is like an eggs-and-ham breakfast: the chicken was 'involved' - the pig was 'committed."

Involvement in any goal or pursuit may yield a few good results in the short term, but great outcomes that last are only ever achieved by way of a committed contribution.

Commitment makes consistency possible, and consistency makes sustainable progress a reality - irrespective of the endeavour.
