Today’s Victory Verse – Stay in step with the Spirit (Galatians 5:25)

Galatians 5:25
If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit.


Today’s Devotional

This is Paul talking. His words are tied to a larger teaching for the church in Galatia. At the time there was a debate between the Jews and gentiles over how to live the Christian life (Acts 15). Paul is reminding them that Freedom, through repentant faith in Christ, should transform all people (5:1). True Freedom is not freedom to live how they want, but freedom to live how God would have them live (5:13). When we don’t know how to live, we can turn to passages like this and read through these thoughts (And though what Paul refers to as the fruit of God’s Spirit – See 5:22 -26) and know more what it means to walk in step with God.
