5:16 I say then - He now explains what he proposed, #Gal 5:13|. Walk by the Spirit - Follow his guidance in all things. And fulfil not - In anything. The desire of the flesh - Of corrupt nature.
Ga 5:16 Walk in the Spirit. Under his guidance, as he directs. We have his directions in the words of Christ and the apostles. Ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. He who is guided by the Spirit will not obey "the lusts of the flesh". See 2Pe 2:18.
Timothy Wayne George's comment on 2013-06-30 06:01:45:
The Apostle Paul is teaching us how to stand fast in the liberty, where with Christ Jesus has set us free. We must walk in the spirit, and then we will not fulfill the desires of the flesh. Those that are born again in Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh, with it's desires, and will not yield their members anymore to do those things. As we walk in the spirit, the fruits of the spirit will be produced in our lives: Love, joy, peace, patience, meekness, self control etc.
Against such there is no law. So don't be entangled in the yoke of bondage again, for who ever keeps the law is debtor to keep the whole law. We have liberty in Christ Jesus, only do not use your liberty as a cloak of bondage. The thief came to kill, still, and destroy, but Jesus came that we might have life and that more abundantly. The whole law of God is completed in one word: Love thy neighbor as thyself. So walk in Love, and you will be set free. Jesus said a new commandment give I unto you, that you love one another as I have loved you.
