Walk In The Spirit by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Walk In The Spirit by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye
shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh
(Galatians 5:16).

S
ome people unwittingly allow every form of
strife to take root in their hearts: bitterness,
malice, anger, envy, hatred, and all forms of
wickedness. But the Apostle Paul, in Ephesians 4:31-32,
admonishes that we put away these things and walk in
love: “Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and
clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with
all malice: And be ye kind one to another,
tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for
Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”

But the question is, “How do you consistently
walk in love in a world where there’s so much hate?”
Our opening text gives us the answer: “This I say then,
Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the
flesh” (Galatians 5:16). When you walk in the Spirit,
you see and walk differently; your perspective is
different, and walking in love is natural to you. Being
born again, you have the capacity to love even the most
difficult or seemingly unlovable people.

When you walk in the Spirit, the love of God
emits from you profusely; you’re kind-hearted and
compassionate; you live beyond yourself and transcend
the human level of selfishness and your own desires.
When you walk in the Spirit, you go beyond “This
is what I want” or “This is how I like it”; you think
differently, and esteem others better than yourself
(Philippians 2:3).

When you walk in the Spirit, you see with His
eyes and think godly and loving thoughts towards
others. There wouldn’t be any iota of anger, selfishness,
bitterness or resentment manifested in or through you;
those things just don’t find a place in you. The words
of Jesus in Matthew 5:43-44 become your lifestyle:
“Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love
thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto
you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do
good to them that hate you, and pray for them which
despitefully use you, and persecute you.”

PRAYER
Dear Father, I thank you for the infilling of the Holy
Spirit that I experience always. My thoughts, words
and actions are motivated by your love, causing me
to see and to relate with others with Christ’s love, in
Jesus’ Name. Amen.
