Living By the Spirit

  1. Jesus was crucified
  2. Some people choose to belong to Jesus
  3. These same people have “crucified” the sinful nature
  4. The sinful nature is made up of passions and desires
  5. Does this mean that all passions and desires are part of the sinful nature?
  6. That can’t be right
  7. Some passions and desires are godly
  8. People who have chosen to follow Jesus live by the Spirit
  9. Paul adds that these people should keep in step with the Spirit
  10. This means that a person can follow Jesus but still get out of step with the Spirit
  11. It requires constant effort and monitoring to stay in step with the Spirit
  12. Our natural tendency is to get out of step
  13. “Spiritual entropy” could be called a natural law of the soul
  14. Don’t become conceited
  15. It’s easy to get arrogant when doing the right thing
  16. Don’t provoke one another
  17. Don’t envy one another
  18. These are three more examples of how people follow Jesus but get out of step with the Spirit
