Walk, Follow, Live

  • Walk by the Spirit - what we do and dedicate ourselves to
  • Be lead by the Spirit - who we follow... the primary influence in our lives
  • Live by the Spirit - Who and how we are

to live - to have and enjoy, without end, the true, genuine and authentic life of the Kingdom of God that activates and blesses our life

"My counsel is this: Live freely, animated and motivated by God's Spirit. Then you won't feed the compulsions of selfishness. For there is a root of sinful self-interest in us that is at odds with a free spirit, just as the free spirit is incompatible with selfishness. These two ways of life are antithetical, so that you cannot live at times one way and at times another way according to how you feel on any given day. Why don't you choose to be led by the Spirit and so escape the erratic compulsions of a law-dominated existence? Since this is the kind of life we have chosen, the life of the Spirit, let us make sure that we do not just hold it as an idea in our heads or a sentiment in our hearts, but work out its implications in every detail of our lives."

The Message Galatians 5:16-18,25
