Sermon Recap — March 24, 2019

Main Point: Walking by the Spirit’s enabling power produces godly fruit in our lives.

After listing the evidences of a heart given to the flesh, Paul contrasts that with the evidences of a heart that has been born again.

1. Walking by the Spirit produces fruit from within us.

2. Walking by the Spirit produces fruit that is gradual and progressive.

3. Walking by the Spirit produces growth that is guaranteed!

4. Walking by the Spirit is not passive but active.
