Spirit Filled Accountability

Series: Galatians

May 03, 2020
Pastor Daniel Lee

I want to include the last verse of chapter 5 (v.26) because I think it fits with the overall message of chapter 6:1-10. Here Paul is explaining the practical outworkings and evidence of a Spirit filled life, and that is to love one another. Walking in the Spirit means the freedom to truly love one another through mutual accountability. This means to look out for one another. But in order to do this with true love, there needs to be personal accountability. This means to check yourself before you wreck yourself (examine your own faith, pride or envy). And lastly, a genuine fruit of the Spirit will produce a persevering accountability. Let us not grow weary in doing good, a very much needed reminder in the season that we are in.
