Staying Free: A Letter to Recovering Pharisees (12)
Sermons on St. Paul's letter to the Galatians
Reading: Galatians 5:16-24
In this section of Galatians St. Paul wants us to understand there is a kind of 'mortal kombat' going on within every Christian, a battle between the flesh & the Spirit! He introduces this idea in 5:16-18. The flesh symbolises our old sinful nature & the Spirit empowers our new righteous nature. In the following verses Paul then goes on to describe the works of the flesh in contrast to the fruit of the Spirit before finishing the Christian’s ‘fatality move’ on the flesh in verse 24. Along the way Paul encourages us, warns us & envisions us so that we accurately understand the spiritual reality we find ourselves in today as Christians.
