Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Galatians 5:24


5:24 And they that are Christ's - True believers in him. Have thus crucified the flesh - Nailed it, as it were, to a cross whence it has no power to break loose, but is continually weaker and weaker. With its affections and desires - All its evil passions, appetites, and inclinations.


People's Bible Notes for Galatians 5:24


Ga 5:24 They that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. They cannot walk after the flesh because they have crucified their lusts. Have died with Christ, been buried, and risen, not to live their own lives, but Christ's. See Ro 6:2-6. Baptism is supposed to mark a complete separation between the old life of sin and the Christian life.

    1 PETER 2:2 as newborn babes --desire the sincere milk--of the word --that you may grow thereby-- ISAIAH 58:13 if thou turn away thy foot from the Sabbath --from doing thy pleasure-- on MY holy day and call the Sabbath --a delight-- the holy of the LORD honorable and --shalt honor HIM-- not doing thine own ways--nor finding thine own pleasure--nor speaking thine own words -- ( then ISAIAH 58:14 )
  • A disciple
    I had some thoughts I wanted to share with you. I hope they come over clearly enough as I had kind of a hard time finding just how to put in words. I think the point has to do with where we place our faith... on outward observance of the Law, and putting ourselves under a yoke that actually can misrepresent the character and nature of our grace and peace in Christ, with respect also to our place won by Christ's shed blood and sacrifice to redeem us to God and enact our Adoption as children, over servants that we were before.
  • A disciple
    "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage." The Lord Jesus said many times about how "...you shall have whatsoever you say " and in the minds of most of us, that tremendous word has been a great inspiration and encouragement both for every trial and difficulty that we should encounter and for the unsearchable wonder of His open invitation to ask WHATSOEVER WE DESIRE when we pray! In the context of what the Apostle is teaching here, our speech and confession coroborates our very standing in God's sight by the form of our religion. As with all of God's truth, the "tip of the iceberg" as we may first come to see, is still part of the whole, which is far greater and deeper than can immediately be seen. The power and authority that God has given to man to pronounce in faith, to bring things about, we are still far from fully grasping. But this is what is implied in the things and manners we take as our religion.

    GALATIANS 5:13 for brethren you have been called unto liberty only --- use not liberty --- for an occasion to the flesh --- but by love serve one another 1 JOHN 5:2 by this we know that we --- love the children of GOD --- when we love GOD and keep HIS commandments GALATIANS 5:16 this I say then walk in the spirit and you --shall not-- fulfill the lust of the flesh JOHN 6:63 it is the spirit that quickeneth --- the flesh profiteth nothing --- the words that I speak unto you they are spirit and they are life 2 PETER 2:19 while they promise them liberty they themselves are the servants of corruption for of whom a man is overcome of the same is he --- brought into bondage ROMANS 6:16 know you not to whom you yield yourselves servants to obey his servants you are to whom you obey whether of sin unto death or of obedience unto righteousness GALATIANS 5:26 let us not be desirous of vain glory provoking one another envying one another
  • A disciple
    "If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit." We ARE under Law to Christ: The Law of the Spirit of Life! We are in a war against the lusts of the flesh, which work to deceive us into sinning. We LIVE IN THE SPIRIT! Our weapons are not carnal, but mighty through God TO THE PULLING DOWN OF STRONGHOLDS! We are under Charge of God to CAST DOWN IMAGINATIONS and to control our thoughts!
