Instructions concerning the Holy Spirit

Ephesians 6:17 tells us: "And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God."

We need to be actively using the Bible (and the message of the Spirit that it contains) in our lives.

Galatians 5:16 says: "But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh."

"Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did; sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit." For the mind set on the flesh is death but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace, because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, and those who are in the flesh cannot please God. However, you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him." Romans 8:1-9

"Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption." Ephesians 4:31

Let us work at walking by the Spirit!
