In this passage from Galatians, believers are commanded to walk by the Spirit so that they will not gratify the desires of the flesh. As Christians, we are indwelt by the Holy Spirit, who strengthens, empowers, and guides us. He gives us the power that we need to fight the battle of sin within, and sanctifies us through the Word, prayer, and as we minister to one another in community. Are we submitting to the Holy Spirit and relying on his strength? Are we regularly in the Word, in prayer, and gathering with his people?
