Galatians 5:15, 16: “But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another! I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.” When Christians follow their sinful desires, we begin to criticize and contend with one another. Such self-centered behavior is self-defeating. Those who criticize and attack usually end up being consumed in worthless struggles. The only consistent way to overcome the sinful desires of our human nature (the flesh) is to live step-by-step in the power of the Holy Spirit as He works through our spirit. Walking each moment by faith in God’s word under the Spirit’s control assures absolute victory over the desires of our sinful nature.
