There are only two ways to live. Either we live by the flesh of humanity or we live by the Spirit of God. The flesh is our default. It is the way we instinctively act and think, pulling us off course with the Lord. The results of fleshly living surround us every day. When you come humbly to Christ, God incarnate, sorry for your sins and ready to be changed by His power, you are given the gift of the Holy Spirit to bring your soul to life. Under the leadership of the Spirit, you’re no longer driven by your old flesh but by the new Spirit residing within you! And friends, that makes all the difference in this world and in eternity forward. Real life is lived by the Spirit!
“Walk by the Spirit and you won’t gratify fleshly desires.” Galatians 5:16
What drives you, the flesh or the spirit?
