What You'll Discover in this Episode:
The Flesh Versus The Spirit
I wonder how many of us as Christians have this crazy idea that, "If I just have a little more time and try a little harder, I’m going to get to where there’s almost no problems at all. I’m going to get on top of this thing called a Christian life.” What a misunderstanding, a misapprehension.
Here's the truth. The flesh lusts against the Spirit and the Spirit against the flesh. These are contrary to one another. We have flesh with us and the spirit of God dwells in us, and there’s a war going on, so that you do not do the things that you wish.
In this podcast, Pastor Jeff discusses the passage from Galatians 5:16-23 as it correlates to with Romans 5 through 8. Here we're given an insight of important the Holy Spirit is in our lives. It serves as our guide, otherwise we are left to our own devices, fleshly indulgences. We’d never do the things we wanted to do if we were not able to be led by the Spirit and not be under the law. Under the law, we always fail. Led by the Spirit, we can grow in Christ.
This is what we mean to be by the Spirit. We are led and guided by the Spirit. We are empowered by the Spirit.
This is great spiritual truth as we counsel and are counseled. This is about the Holy Spirit in counseling. This is a great section on the Holy Spirit in counseling. Counseling isn’t the context, but counseling is a major arena of application of these truths.
