Sermon Series: Living Out the Resurrection
Live by the Spirit

Galatians 5:16-26, NRSV

Let us not become conceited, competing against one another, envying one another. — Gal 5:26

  • Live by the Spirit, or, Led by the Spirit of God
  • a cosmic conflict – between flesh and spirit
    • two worldviews
    • two identities
  • pursue the relational wholeness
  • Apostle Paul’s challenge to us:
    • never throw in the towel
    • recognize the possibilities of having another identity (two different motivations)
      • root in the identity of flesh (either pride or despair)
      • root in the identity of spirit
    • 3 words to the strategy to this challenge (to root in identity of Spirit)
      • fight!
      • relax! (cut yourself some slack)
      • serve (one another)
