When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear:
Haunted by sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures always near;
Obsessed with (American) idolatry while watching movie sorcery;
Always giving in to hostility, quarreling, jealousy and outbursts of anger--
Maintaining selfish ambition, causing dissension, division and danger;
Infatuated with envy, gossiping with no thought of the consequences--
Fixated on drunkenness and throwing “bad” wild parties like a dog:
Observe these things and you will not inherit the kingdom of God!
Let me tell you about the good life of following the Spirit of Christ:
Let Jesus in your heart and immerse you in His love--which is the key--
Obtain His joy unspeakable, and discover comfort in His peace;
When Christ reigns, you have His patience with everyone you meet;
Inspired with His kindness and goodness to everyone you greet,
Newly filled with His faithfulness and gentleness, you have Christ’s
Great self-control: There is no law against these things!
? When you look at what you’re doing with your life, ask yourself:
Who am I following?
Reference: Galatians 5:19-23 (New Living Translation)
When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God. But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!
