Works of the Flesh

September 19, 2021 Speaker: Kevin Deyette Series: Fruit of the Spirit

Passage: Galatians 5:16–5:26

Text: Galatians 5:16-26
Title: Works of the Flesh

Fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22-23): 
Love                Joy
Peace               Patience
Kindness          Goodness
Gentleness       Faithfulness
Self Control

John Stott's Daily Prayer: 
"Holy Spirit, I pray that this day will fill me with yourself and cause your fruit to ripen in my life: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, self control"

Works of the Flesh (Gal. 5:19-21): 
Sexual immorality            Impurity
Sensuality                       Idolatry
Sorcery                           Enmity (hatred)
Strife (contention)           Jealousy
Fits of anger                   Rivalries
Dissension                      Divisions
Drunkenness                   Orgies
Things like these

Knowledge + desire = justification for calling idolatry Christian freedom.

Spiritual maturity and godliness cannot coexist with the works of the flesh. 

Secret to Fruit of the Spirit: 
1) Go all-in for your faith (Gal. 5:24). 
2) Walk in the Spirit/Abide in Jesus (Gal. 5:16,18,25).
