The Kitchen Table            Galatians Day 26

But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do Galatians 5:16-17

Here’s the thing.  The law never was our enemy, it was God’s tool to reveal our enemy which is our flesh, our sinful nature inherited from Adam.  The Spirit’s appetite is for God and the things of God, but the appetite of this flesh is to fulfill the appetites of this sinful nature.  Our skin is used to ruling our spirit but Jesus changes that when we are born-again, and His Spirit now lives in us.  His Spirit has an appetite for Him.  There are no laws in this life, only love.  Learn to walk by the Spirit, listening to His voice.  We learn to hear His voice as we learn to listen to His Word.  Bring the Holy Spirit into every move we make, every meal we take and every mile we walk.  Only Jesus can satisfy the real appetites of life.
