So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.
12 I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. 14 He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. 15 All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.”
In Summary, Tim is saying…
Walk by the Spirit.
The Spirit will glorify Christ.
When Christ is Glorified to our hearts, we will not fulfill the desires of the flesh.
We must spend quality time with Christ to see His beauty and glory and to love him.
We must love him.
1. If we love Jesus with a close loving relationship, if we sin against him sexually, shouldn’t it feel as though we have betrayed him and committed adultery against him? If nothing is felt, then we really don’t love him.
John 14:21 (NET)
21 The person who has my commandments and obeys them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and will reveal myself to him.”
Joshua 1:8 (net)
This law scroll must not leave your lips! You must memorize it day and night so you can carefully obey all that is written in it. Then you will prosper and be successful.
2. If we continue to do the same sin over and over, are we not taking advantage of Jesus’ mercy and forgiveness?
