ACTS OF SINFUL NATURE

Updated: Jun 14

Galatians 5:19-21

19: The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity, and debauchery; 20: idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21: and 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.

5:19-21 We all have evil desires, and we can’t ignore them. In order for us to follow the Holy Spirit’s guidance, we must deal with them decisively (crucify them—5:24). These desires include obvious sins, such as sexual immorality and witchcraft. They also include less obvious sins, such as selfish ambition, hatred, and jealousy. Those who ignore such sins or refuse to deal with them reveal that they have not received the gift of the Spirit that leads to a transformed life. Tyndale. Life Application Study Bible

These are just some of the acts of the sinful nature. But they all lead to being separated from God’s will and spirit. We can’t say that they will lead to hell because Jesus is always quick to forgive thru His grace and mercy. But we must repent and change and turn from our sinful nature which can only be obtained by the love of Jesus and His leading our life by the Holy Spirit. These next few days we will start and look at the acts of the sinful nature. ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and be lead by the Holy Spirit.
