Requirement For The Kingdom Of God Part 53!
1What I am saying is that as long as an heir is underage, he is no different from a slave, although he owns the whole estate.
2The heir is subject to guardians and trustees until the time set by his father.
3So also, when we were underage, we were in slavery under the elemental spiritual forces of the world.
4But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law,
5to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.
6Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.”
7So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.
Life by the Spirit
13You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh ; rather, serve one another humbly in love.
14For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
15If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.
16So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.
17For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. 18But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
19The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions
21and 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.
22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
24Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.
26Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other.
Remember The Holy Spirit Is Here To Help!
May God Bless You And Keep You From All Evil!
