But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. (Galatians 5:16-17 ESV) How are those New Year’s resolutions going? We are a couple of weeks into the new year, and those with resolve are still steaming forward. But for the rest of us who have lost the desire, never had a plan, and are adverse to the pain, the hopes of change for 2016 are fading fast. I always kinda chuckle at how full gym parking lots are in January, but how empty they are in March. How about you? This week I want to talk about growth and change, but from a perspective that is greater and deeper than you may have ever considered. Paul believed that when the gospel entered a life, something was different, radically different. Far from the external conformity that the Galatian false teachers were promoting, this transformation would affect them from the inside - out.
