WALKING IN THE SPIRIT
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law. Galatians 5:22,23
Two trees, the tree of death, filled with the fruit of the flesh and the tree of life which yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness. There were two trees in the Garden of Eden too, the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and the tree of life.
Adam and Eve chose to eat of the tree in which God said not to eat, and if they did, they would surely die! Satan came along and said to them, "You surely shall not die!" But the outcome was death and expulsion from the garden, lest they also eat from the tree of life and live forever in sin! Because of one act of disobedience, all of mankind received the generational curse of sin, only removed by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ!
If we are going to walk in the Spirit we must crucify our flesh, take up our cross and follow Jesus on the narrow road which leads to eternal life! When one is born again he must repent and forsake his sins and be delivered and washed in the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ that breaks the curse of sin and death!
And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Galatians 5:24,25
