0806 – Walking in the Spirit 顺着圣灵而行

Galations 5:16 -18(NKJV) I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.God will be an unjust God if we are not able to have the ability to produce the fruit of the Holy Spirit of peace in our lives. All the fruit of the Holy Spirit is found in us the moment we are born again. We are a new creation now that we are born again. We have the nature of God and the ability to yield to the Holy Spirit therefore walking in the Spirit is an ability that God has given us. We have the Holy Spirit living in us that empowers us to walk in the Spirit and not gratify the desire of the flesh. Therefore, we have victory over temptation.

He has empowered us to produce the fruit of the Holy Spirit in our lives by abiding in the vine/in Christ and choosing to walk in the Spirit rather than succumb to the flesh. We are not abiding in Christ and allowing the Holy Spirit to rule and reign in our lives if we gratify the desire of the flesh.

We were subject to the law of sin and death before we were saved. The sin nature in us dictated what we should do and our emotions got the better of us. We were living solely in the soulish realm. Just like the law of gravity applies to everyone and nobody is able to break free from it until we apply the law of aerodynamics. The airplane is able to take off from the runway despite of the law of gravity because the law of aerodynamics helps the aircraft to lift off. Similarly the believers life is able to break away from the control of sin when we allow the law of Spirit of life in Christ Jesus to work in us .We must know that we have the life of Christ in us and the power of the Holy Spirit to empower us to deal with the flesh in particular the soul. We pursue peace by walking in the Spirit and deny the flesh 1000 times!

When we continue to abide in the Lord, remember His teachings and walk in the Spirit then we will see the fruit of peace being shown or produced in our lives. It is within our ability and power to bring about peace at home, at work and in the country of our residence.

Sermon Series: Peace – Fruit of the Holy Spirit


顺着圣灵而行

加拉太书5:16-18我说:你们当顺着圣灵而行,就不放纵肉体的情欲了。
因为情欲和圣灵相争,圣灵和情欲相争,这两个是彼此为敌,使你们不能做所愿意的。
但你们若被圣灵引导,就不在律法以下。

如果我们没有能力在生命中结出和平的圣灵的果实,那么上帝将是不公正的上帝。 我们重生的那一刻,所有的圣灵之果就已在我们里面了。我们如今是新造之物,我们重生了。 我们具有上帝的天性和顺服于圣灵的能力,因此顺着圣灵而行是上帝赋予我们的能力。 我们有圣灵住在我们里面,使我们有能力顺着圣灵而行不会沉溺在肉体的欲望。 因此,我们就战胜了诱惑。

我们因与葡萄枝子连结/在基督里,选择顺着圣灵,而不屈服于肉体,这使我们得以在生命中结出圣灵的果实。 如果我们沉浸在肉体的渴望,我们就不会常常在基督里面,也不会让圣灵来管理和掌管我们的生活。

在我们得救之前,我们是服在罪与死的律法的权下。我们的罪性决定了我们该做的事,我们被自己的情绪所左右。我们曾活在一个单一属魂的领域。 就像万有引力定律适用于所有人一样,除非我们应用空气动力学定律,否则任何人都无法摆脱这定律。 尽管有重力定律,飞机仍能够从跑道起飞,因为空气动力学定律帮助了飞机升空。 同样地,当我们允许基督耶稣里的生命之律在我们里面工作时,信徒们的生命就能摆脱罪的控制,我们必须知道我们拥有基督的生命和圣灵的能力 使我们有能力去处理对付肉体,尤其是灵魂。 我们通过顺着圣灵去追求和平 并1000次地克制住血气!

我们继续常在主里,牢记祂的教导并顺着圣灵而行时,我们就能看到自己的生命中显露出或结出了和平的果子。在我们的能力及权力所及之处 — 家中、职场以及我们所居住的国家—带来和平。
