Holy Ghost two step

Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.  Galatians 5:25

The Holy Spirit is the fuel for spiritual living. This is where freedom resides and where fruit bearing takes place. The flesh is pre-conversion to Christ living; it is reliance on self to seek security. The Spirit is post-conversion to Christ living; it is reliance and dependence on God. The Spirit and the flesh conflict with each other, but when the flesh has been put to death by faith the Spirit is able to come alive. Spiritual living submits to Christ. Spiritual living thrives as we  surrender daily to Jesus and His word.

The way we became a disciple, by grace through faith, is the same way we continue as a disciple. Yet, the flesh tries to flaunt its old habits as teasers to tempt us not to trust God. But we know better, it’s better not to boast in the flesh, but be humbled by the Spirit. When we walk in the Spirit we are empowered to bear the fruit of the Spirit. The Spirit brings wisdom when we consider ways that are unwise. The Spirit brings conviction when we begin to drift away from the will of God. The Spirit brings comfort when we struggle with discomfort. The Holy Spirit is the key to spiritual living.
