"Liberated from Legalism"

Galatians 5:16-18


As we saw last week, there was a certain discouragement which came with Paul's command in verses 13-15. Before we revisit the discouragement, let's look at the antidote in verses 16-18:

But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

Keep that in mind as we now return to the discouragement.


Galatians 5:13-15 says:

For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” But if you bite and devour one another, watch out that you are

not consumed by one another.
