Training to be like Jesus


Training to be like Jesus

Galatians 5:16-25

Two Ways of Living:

1) Being Led by the Flesh: Passive, “go with the flow” (Galatians 5:16-21)

2) Being Led by the Spirit, Proactive, Engaged (Galatians 5:22-25)

Trained by the Spirit to bear fruit

1) The Fruit of the Spirit is that it’s singular, not plural.

Integration not Isolation

2) The Fruit of the Spirit isn’t automatic.

Competencies not Requirements

3) The Fruit of the Spirit is a by-product of true life.

See also Romans 8:1-16

Grace always comes before works.
