Follow the Spirit

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:1 -

It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:2 -

Look! I, Paul, tell you that if you have yourselves circumcised, Christ will be of no benefit to you.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:3 - And I testify again to every man who has himself circumcised, that he is obligated to keep the whole Law.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:4 - You have been severed from Christ, you who [fn]are seeking to be justified by the [fn]Law; you have fallen from grace.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:5 - For we, [fn]through the Spirit, [fn]by faith, are waiting for the hope of righteousness.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:6 - For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, but faith working through love.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:7 -

You were running well; who hindered you from obeying the truth?

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:8 - This persuasion did not come from Him who calls you.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:9 - A little [fn]leaven leavens the whole lump of dough.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:10 - I have confidence [fn]in you in the Lord, that you will adopt no other view; but the one who is disturbing you will bear the punishment, whoever he is.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:11 - But as for me, brothers and sisters, if I still preach circumcision, why am I still persecuted? Then the stumbling block of the cross has been eliminated.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:12 - I wish that those who are troubling you would even [fn]emasculate themselves.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:13 -

For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but serve one another through love.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:14 - For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.”
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:15 - But if you bite and devour one another, take care that you are not consumed by one another.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:16 -

But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:17 - For the desire of the flesh is against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, in order to keep you from doing whatever you want.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:18 - But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:19 - Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: sexual immorality, impurity, indecent behavior,
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:20 - idolatry, witchcraft, hostilities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions,
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:21 - envy, 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.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:22 - But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:23 - gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:24 - Now those who [fn]belong to Christ Jesus crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:25 -

If we live by the Spirit, let’s follow the Spirit as well.

Unchecked Copy BoxGal 5:26 - Let’s not become boastful, challenging one another, envying one another.
