A Life of Struggle

Passage: Galatians 5:17
Service Type:

The Christian life is …

  •         a struggle between the flesh and the Spirit
  •         a life of dying to my own desires and selfishness – say NO to selfishness and hold my desires with an open hand
  •         a life that includes sinning and being forgiven – until I die – then the sinning is done
  •         a life of struggling with (and hopefully overcoming) temptation
  •         a life of persevering, following God when my desires pull me in another direction, or serving and giving when I am tired

·         a life of self-discipline, depending on the Holy Spirit, being led by the Holy Spirit
