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.

'stand fast' in 2017 is still a military phrase... in this war it mean do not move, hold your position, the victory is won through the Blood of the Lamb and the Bride Groom is on his way... 'stand fast' WOW!

    Isn't that a beautiful verse? Thank-you for sharing it with me and anyone else that sees it. I knew about Num. 6:24-27, and I've seen this one, but it didn't register for some reason. Have a good day, Bro. Dan ........
