How to Conquer the Power of Sin

Episode 165 Paul tells us in Galatians 5:16-18, “But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.” What does it mean to walk in the Spirit? In today’s program, we explore this topic in detail. Show Notes: 0:32 – One of the earliest Christian debates: How do we live out our faith? What does obedience to God look like now that Jesus has come? 3:50 – Why did God give us the law covenant of Moses? To show us our inability to follow God in our own power. 7:23 – If we don’t obey God under the old covenant of law but rather under the new covenant of the Spirit, what does it mean to keep in step with the Spirit? The book of Galatians offers us three clues… 9:32 – We walk in the Spirit by indulging in Spirit-born desires. We don’t kill sinful desire by pushing it down, but by trumping it with something more desirable than sin—the wholesome desires of God and His good gifts. 17:18 – We walk in the Spirit by stirring up our Spirit-inspired hope. We shouldn’t fight against sin as if we still a slave to it, but knowing we belong to Christ, knowing it is our destiny to become righteous. 29:06 – We walk in the Spirit by resting in our Spirit-given identity. We shouldn’t fight sin as if we are a spiritual orphans trying to earn God’s love, but knowing we are adopted sons of God, loved beyond comprehension already. “The soul tends to shrink to the size and quality of its pleasures.” – John Piper Get our weekly podcasts in your inbox E-mail jQuery(document).bind('gform_post_render', function(event, formId, currentPage){if(formId == 84) {} } );jQuery(document).bind('gform_post_conditional_logic', function(event, formId, fields, isInit){} ); jQuery(document).ready(function(){jQuery(document).trigger('gform_post_render', [84, 1]) } ); Listen to more of our podcasts on iTunes.
