The War Within

Do you ever feel like you are at war with yourself?  Do you sense the tension that is within you?  The Apostle Paul speaks of this war within us in our passage for this Sunday, towards the end of Galatians chapter 5 in the New Testament.  Every person that has become a Christian by faith in Jesus has the Spirit of God living in them.  Along with the Spirit of God remains the flesh, that which is left over from the old man before salvation.  These two are at war with each other.  Sometimes the things we want to do, we don’t end up doing and the things we want to avoid, we fall into.  This tension is explained by both God’s Spirit that abides in us and the flesh, our sinful nature.  The one that we submit to the most is the one that will dominate our life.  The Bible shows us some pretty clear evidence in Galatians 5 of how to know who is winning this war.  Who is winning the war inside of you?  Join us this Sunday at 10:30am as we dive into this topic in more depth.
