We would love to see you at church this weekend
This Sunday, 26th June we look at Galatians 5 and the Fruit of the Spirit. In his letter to the Galatians the Apostle Paul is dealing with the arguments of those who want to turn the non Jewish Christians into adhering Jews by making them jump through hoops of circumcision and religious observance. They want them to get the external observances right. Paul says that’s not necessary because God has done something new in Christ through faith that brings deep down spiritual change, which is transformational. As he says in Galatians 5:18 “if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.”
f you live your life just trying to be good in your own strength and religious observance, what lies beneath will eventually bubble to the surface and it wont be good. It won’t be good because it won’t be God changed. But if we keep in step with the Spirit we will see the fruit of the Spirit in our life, love, joy, peace etc. reflecting from a changed beneath.
