How do you know you are walking in the Spirit?

Galatians 5:16

Walk in the Spirit and you shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh

 

As a believer we are directed through the Word to walk in the Spirit, so that we will not sin. But, how do we know if you are walking in the Spirit?

Are there signs we can look for?

Yes!

We first must understand why as believers that we must walk in the Spirit.

Galatians 5:17

For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other.

We are in a battle constantly, and the war is also against our own flesh. The Spirit wars against the flesh, they can not accompany the same space/body/soul.

Signs of Walking in the flesh:(Galatians 5:19-21)

1. adultery

2. fornication

3. uncleanness

4. Idolatry

5. lasciviousness

6. witch craft

7. hatred

8. variance

9. emulation

10. wrath

11. strife

12. seditions

13. heresies

14. envyings

15. murders

16. drunkenness

17. revel lings

 

These sins of the flesh prevent us from inheriting the Kingdom of Heaven.

 

Signs of Walking in the Spirit:

1. Love

2. Joy

3. Peace

4. long suffering

5. gentleness

6. goodness

7. faith

8. meekness

9. temperance

 

As you can see the war is one we can not battle without the help of the Spirit. Dear Saints, seek ye first the Kingdom of Heaven and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you (Matthew 6:33)

If we live in the Spirit then let us walk in The Spirit(Galatians 5:25)

Dear Saints,as we walk in the Spirit we can bring glory to God not only with our words, but through the manifestation of the Spirit in our lives.

Let this be your focus this week.

May our Lord be Glorified
