Galatians 5:16-23 teaches that at any moment we are either walking by the Holy Spirit or according to the sin nature. Walking by the Spirit, enjoying fellowship with God, walking in the light are virtually synonymous. During these times, the Holy Spirit is working in us to illuminate our minds to the truth of Scripture and to challenge us to apply what we learn. But when we sin, we begin to live based on the sin nature. Our works do not count for eternity. The only way to recover is to confess (admit, acknowledge) our sin to God the Father and we are instantly forgiven, cleansed, and recover our spiritual walk (1 John 1:9). Please make sure you are walking by the Spirit before you begin your Bible study, so it will be spiritually profitable.
After Absalom was killed and his rebellion crushed how did David resume his role as king? Listen to this lesson to learn how David treated his defeated enemies in grace with the exception of his own general, Joab, whom he replaced. Hear the two limited roles of government according to the Bible which our Founding Fathers followed. Just as David did, we need to learn to love our enemies and treat them in grace.
