Our flesh fight against the Spirit, because the flesh is filled with envy and strife, jealousy, anger, adultery, fornication, which leads to destruction, and are not of God, but of the flesh.
To have a life of abundance, we must learn to add fruits to our lives by walking in the Spirit, which is filled with love, joy, peace, goodness, faith, and meekness, which are of God.
Let us learn, daily, to walk in the Spirit, and not in the flesh, on purpose.
Galatians 5:16-25 (KJV) – this I say then, walk in the Spirit and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other; so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envying, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Burn the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
