An Encouragement from Galatians

Gal. 5:19-23 - "The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law."

What would you rather have, the fruit of the Spirit or, what Leah Jensen calls, the vegetables of the flesh? No brainer right? The book of Galatians gives us 6 important keys! 1) Love Him!!! 2) Receive, live and share the gospel! 3) Walk in freedom in the power of His Holy Spirit! 4) Stay strong in accountability! 5) Don’t give up! 6) Keep the right perspective! That's obviously a very short summary of an amazing book! We just got back from a great men's retreat and I had the opportunity to go into a little more detail on those 6 topics (but still not that much). Get the notes here or the MP3 below!
