Welcome to our new ministry website and blog. I will be making posts bi-weekly to encourage a deepening of your walk with Jesus.
“How’s Your Walk?”
Galatians 5:16 states “walk by the Spirit and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.” Galatians 5:25 states “…let us also walk by the Spirit.” The verses (5:17-24) between the two “walks” give instruction on the various activities of “walking in the flesh and walking in the Spirit.” The term “walk” is used in 5:16 & 5:25 to bracket the importance of the teaching of the “flesh vs. Spirit.”
There is a subtle shift in terms for “walk” in 5:16 & 5:25 calling the readers to “walk in the Spirit.” Galatians 5:16 uses the term “walk” for a “conduct of life” (lit. as you walk around). Your mindset should be dependence on the Holy Spirit. Galatians 5:22 uses a different word for “walk” pointing out the “individual steps/footprints.” Each and every thought and activity in our lives is to be directed by the Holy Spirt.
Are you walking by the Spirit in your thoughts, actions and words?
