The Fruit of the Flesh, part 2

The Fruit of the Flesh, part 2

Welcome to Chapel City Church. We are glad that you have joined us for worship today. As we continue to work our way through Galatians 5, we are going to encounter the next group of “Fruits of the Flesh.” This week we will look at those things that the flesh produces that are failures to love others well. These include sins like anger that are typically against an individual, but also dissension and factions that break the unity of the body of Christ. Once again, the difficulty is not in seeing these things are wrong or destructive. The real difficulty comes in seeing these as issues stemming from our own hearts rather than blaming them on the circumstances or people around us. So how do we rightly identify these things in our lives? What is the hope that Christ has given us as we seek to put off these sinful behaviors? We would love to answer any questions that you have, and to know how we can be praying for you specifically.

But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law. Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissentions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 

Galatians 5:18-21
