Set Free in the Spirit

November 5, 2017 Galatians 5:16-25 Download: Notes

Don’t you wish you could do what your really want to do? If you could do things over, would you do anything differently? I’m not sure that people really set out to do something bad or stupid, they kind of slide into behaviors that get them into more and more trouble. Then, they feel stuck and enslaved by their mistakes. They want to change, but have no power to change. Some try to make new rules, but they end up breaking their own regimen. Others just give into their habits and desires. But Paul knew a better way…

In Paul’s letter to the Galatians, he warned that the only way to continue to live in freedom was by the power of the Holy Spirit. We can live in the freedom of the Holy Spirit. How can we live in the freedom of the Holy Spirit? The text gives three steps to living in the freedom of the Spirit.
