In the audio message linked below, I teach that we cannot walk by the Spirit of God if we are not postured by the gospel.
There’s a strong connection between the ministry of the Spirit and overcoming the destruction of peaceful community described vividly in Galatians 5.
Notice the connection between the ministry of the Spirit and the power to overcome destructive relationships.
- Galatians 5:15-16 – “If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other. So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.”
- Galatians 5:25-26 – “Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.”
