  • Beverley Duncan on Galatians 5 - 8 years ago
    This passage as well as others, is here as a guide for us to follow in Christ's footsteps. As Christians ,the fruit of the Spirit is a requirement . I see it and accept it as in depth cleansing of the old self and me becoming a new creature, this will not happen overnight, but will happen if one is willing to let God through the Holy Spirit come into our hearts and reside there.
  • Sheldon on Galatians 5 - 8 years ago
    Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
  • Antoinette on Galatians 5 - 8 years ago
    I love Verse 22 and 23 best about the Fruit of the Spirit from God.These fruits do not just come out overnight. Just like regular fruit trees, the farmer plants the seeds, water the plants and sooner or later the fruits come out. some take longer than others to bear fruits. Each us need to work on each fruit continuously by renewing our minds daily until we cultivate all the FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT.

  • Lilian on Galatians 5 - 9 years ago
    Thanks to Jesus for washing our unrighteousness from his precious blood. God doesnt want to bless us only but he want our soul also to be saved. By Accepting and inviting Jesus into your life and obey his words are the key to our salvation. From his words we have life in abundance. Thank you Lord for your precious blood, your resurrection, your ascencion and thanks for sending us the Holy Spirit. Amen

    Bro. Daniel FC 's on Ryan Jashua Shepperd 's comment about verse 4. Part Two: Yes, we are all saved by grace only and no one can boast. In Romans chapter 7, Apostle Paul makes it clear: 7 What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet. 12 Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good . Lip service only, to God, is not going to be enough. According to Jesus Himself: Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven but he that DOES the will of my Father which is in heaven. And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work INIQUITY Matt. 7: 21, 23 . The word iniquity according to Strong s concordance has the following meanings: 1. the condition of without law 2. because ignorant of it 3. because of violating it 4. contempt and violation of law, iniquity, wickedness. Remember: We keep the Moral Law not in order to be saved, but BECAUSE WE ARE SAVED AND LOVE THE LORD. Does that make sense?

    Bro. Daniel FC 's on Ryan Jashua Shepperd 's comment about verse 4: how totally impossible it is to SIN our way into heaven Hi Ryan, are you saying that keeping the Ten Commandments is sin? Last time I checked, sin is the transgression of the law 1John 3:4 : not trying to keep it. In his letter to the Galatians, Apostle Paul is talking to the new converts who were misled by those maintaining that you need to be circumcised in order to be saved. Please don t confuse the Ceremonial Laws fulfilled by Jesus and rendered obsolete with the Moral Laws, which every Christian must live by.

  • Margaret on Galatians 5 - 9 years ago
    Galatians 5 is a guide to live by if you know Christ Jesus and I am glad to know My Jesus for without him I probably wouldn 't be here now. I look at it as a way to check myself daily to make sure I have stayed in the right, and to ask forgiveness if I haven 't.
  • Betty Harrison Holmes on Galatians 5:10 - 9 years ago
    I thank God because this verse is encouraging me to know that "WHOSOEVER IS TROUBLING MY SPIRIT " WILL BARE HIS JUDGEMENT. MEANING GOD IS GOING TO STOP THE PERSON THAT HAS BEEN TROUBLING MY SPIRIT. THE SPIRIT OFWITCHCRAFT. WILL BE NO MORE AND THE PERSONS THAT HAVE BEEN RESPONSIBLE GOD IS GOING TO CUT THEM OFF. TOUCH NOT MY ANOINTED AND DO MY PROPHET NO HARM. WE CANNOT MESS WITH GOD 'S ANOINTED ONES. JESUS SAID THAT HIMSELF.

    GALATIANS 5:4 COMMENTS 3 31 2015 This verse Apostle Paul portraits unto the saints. Rom.9:31 Heb.12:15. We justified, called and save by the grace of God through our Lord Jesus Christ. As Rom. 3:24,6:14 Gal. 1:6, 15 Eph. 2:5,8. Thank you Lord for grace that you given to us. A-men.
  • Lilian on Galatians 5 - 9 years ago
    God already gave us life in abundance we are already forgiven and pardoned from the precious blood of Jesus. We must invite the Holy Spirit and God to dwell in our life and all the desire of thine heart will be follow. Without Christ in our lives we cannot do anything. Blessed are those who are poor in their hearts for they shall see God. Blessed are those who believe in Jesus for they shall be saved and have eternal life. Give thanks to Jesus and praised him for he is worthy to be praised. He loves us so much and from his precious blood we are covered and washed from our sins. Thank you Jesus there is no other Jehovah is just you. Amen

  • MockingBird on Galatians 5:1 - 9 years ago
    I am to stand in the liberty of freedom from sin through my Lord Jesus Christ : Sin is bondage. Being made free from sin does not give me a license to sin. I am accountable to God to stand fast in the liberty that is purchased for me . I look back at what Jesus has brought me from and I see the horrible bondage that I was in : and I thought when I was in that bondage at the time that it was not bondage. OH !!! How manifold the Grace and Mercy of God toward me !!!!!!
  • Caleb samuel on Galatians 5:1 - 9 years ago
    Yes we dnt fight to win bt we stand in the liberty which Christ have set to win....
  • Phyllis henruchs on Galatians 5 - 9 years ago
    Making it all practical. I will say, from experience the fruits of the spirit is awesome. It is fruitful, heart fulfilling, encouraging, easy to live. The art of sharing, caring, giving, sacrificing is like sewing seeds on the field or grooming your garden. The marvellous picture you see when everything grows is an amazing feeling. Can we all imagine a life where we all with care and concern for one another,live together, that is heaven on earth,what a lovely placece our world would be. Selfish interest pursue the fruit of the flesh. These fruits are bitter and destructive, no matter what. We need the grace to live the fulfilling life of the spirit. Yet as we keep pursuing it, the grace will make us whole. Life is unfair as long as human beings are concerned. Yet there is nothing fruitless like a life without peace, joy, love, unity etc.as stated to be the fruits of the spirit. Beloved, let us love. Love is of God, life is too short. Live it intensively, bearing the fruit of the spirit and leave a legacy of hope, joy and happiness for the generation to come. After all this was the example of Christ. May His amazing love and grace make us whole.
  • Katrina on Galatians 5:16 - 9 years ago
    Thanku for the words of encouragement
  • Tekulvia on Galatians 5:26 - 9 years ago
    Galatians 5:26 verse is telling us that we shouldn 't provoke one another we shouldn 't hate each other cause we wouldn 't want to be treated the same wah and that we should learn that god as all power to do any thing so we should down talk people just to get attention we should be helping each other get closer to god.
  • Victor Marcus on Galatians 5:16 - 9 years ago
    In this context,the apostle Paul is giving us a solution in which we can live a pure life by not fulfilling the lustful desire of the flesh.Fleshly desires attack the flesh we give in to them when we are walking in the flesh because our mind is focused on what the flesh wants.But when we live in the spirit,we do what the spirit wants.The proverb states if you are in Rome do what the Romans do so when we walk in the spirit,the flesh loses its power over us.
  • Motdaugrnds on Galatians 5 - 9 years ago
    Here the Heavenly Father makes it so clear how simple a spiritual life is...not that it is easy to live such a life in this world...just that it is easy to understand. Nothing is hidden from those who wish to understand because God 's Holy Spirit guides us to Scripture after Scripture to assure our understanding. All communication not understood by man cannot teach man yet man 's heart-felt desires that he she may have no words for can be understood by God because the Holy Spirit makes intercession for us. So, make sure you can actually REASON with those studying Scripture with you that you be not misled.
  • Centyfano Arnold on Galatians 5:1 - 9 years ago
    "For He who called you is holy, therefore be ye also holy... " I love scriptures of that sort, reminding me of the plan of redemption of Rev 13:8 after the fall of man. God bless!!!
  • Dr.Selvon Seebran on Galatians 5 - 9 years ago
    America is in desperate need of revival, revival like unto the Ministry recorded in the Gospels the Book of Acts. If every Christian should read this chapter and practice this, we can have one of the greatest revival in America and souls would swept into the Kingdom of God. a
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson on Galatians 5 - 9 years ago
    Hello Steve O: The gifts of the spirit is from the selfsame spirit, 1 Corinthians 12: 11. This is the Holy Ghost and the evidence of having the Holy Ghost is speaking in other tongues as the spirit of God gives utterance. We are unified into one body that belongs to Jesus Christ. Gifts come without repentance. You can learn to speak many languages like Paul and some other people, but there is a language that no man can speak or know interpretation thereof unless God gives it to that person. This is why the tongues were split on the day of Pentecost to demonstrate there were two types of tongues. If a person never speaks another language other than their own, they have to have the language of God in order to know that they have the true Holy Ghost.
  • Steve O on Galatians 5 - 9 years ago
    Many are seeking the gifts of the spirit instead of the fruits of it. The gifts and calling are without repentance. The spirit comes in after our repentance and baptism in Jesus name, and not only when we speak in unknown tongues. Jesus is our high priest and example of this, and the spirit descend on Him after His baptism as it will you. Read Matthew 3:12-16: Romans 6:3-5 Galatians 3:27. Peace and prosperity to all who love God.

    GOD FEARING MEN CAN ONLY POSSES AND APPLY THESE CHARACTERS TOWARDS THEIR FELLOW BEINGS , WHILE LIVING ON THE EARTH.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson on Galatians 5 - 9 years ago
    Hello Beverly Johnson The circumcision of the male children was a twofold thing. First it was to keep the covenant with God and second their whole house was saved, if the men did this. Now we are circumcised of the heart, Romans 2 29. Even though circumcision of the ** does not save you this does not mean that we should not circumcise our young men. I believe that they should be circumcised because of all the health risk that are involved if they do not get circumcised. This is a parent s choice and when the child gets older it will be his choice. In the end, the circumcision of the heart is for everyone. We will all meet God in the end on our own merits, the deeds done in our own body individually not relying on anyone else.
  • Beverley Johnson on Galatians 5 - 9 years ago
    My understanding of the teachings of Galatians 5 is that circumcision was a means of purification in Moses ' days. If you were circumcised you had to obey all the other laws which were burdensome. Christ died for us so circumcision is not important. We should practise the works of the Spirit in our daily lives and do away with the works of the flesh.
