WALKING IN THE SPIRIT

He who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. Galatians 6:8 (NKJV)

You are driving on a long trip to visit your folks for Thanksgiving. In the backseat, friction is rising between your ten-year old and twelve-year-old. You have a decision. Will you lose your temper and discipline the children, or will you firmly correct them with your emotions under the Spirit’s control?

Such are the constant choices each individual makes to “walk in the Spirit.” It is not a mystical experience but practical submission to God’s will in everyday circumstances. Walking in the Spirit is thus a cultivated lifestyle, learning to act and react under His direction and influence rather than being controlled by temperament or personality.

Each day brings increasing cooperation with the Spirit’s will and power. You can walk in the Spirit one trusting step at a time. Begin with the next decision you must make.
