Since the Christian life is a Spirit-led life, we must seek to daily walk by the Spirit and not gratify the desires of the flesh.
1. If you walk by the Spirit, you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.
“We must listen to the Spirit’s Word, discern his will, and follow his guidance.” —David Platt
2. How do we know if we are walking by the Spirit or not?
“People commit idolatry when they look to someone or something other than God to give them what only God can give them.” —David Platt
“If someone has the Spirit in them—if they are a Christian—the fruit will grow. Whatever a Christian’s life is like, the fruit of the Spirit will burst through. A person saved by faith will be a person in whom the fruit of the Spirit grows.” —Tim Keller
3. As the Spirit grows us in our faith, we must keep in step with the Spirit.
