• Growing the Fruit of the Spirit  5-20-18

     

     Galatians 5:17 For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want.

     

    Galatians 5:19-21 19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

     

    Galatians 5:16 So I say, live by the Spirit.

     

    Galatians 3:3 Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort?

     

    John 15:4-5 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.

     

    • Living by the Spirit means having the Spirit in the first place.

     

    Romans 8:9 If anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ.

     

    • Living by the Spirit requires systematic feeding

     

    Romans 8:5-6 Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit.

     

    • Living by the Spirit means spiritual pruning.

     

    Galatians 5:24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires.

     

    Colossians 3:5 Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your sinful nature.

     

    John 15:2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.
