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.
What causes the harsh, loud anger of those who reject God toward the ones who believe biblical truths? Listen to this lesson to learn that pagans feel threatened by the thought that there is a Creator God and try to bully anyone who disagrees with them. Find out the meaning of culture and hear an overview of Greek culture that shaped Ephesus with its emphasis on human reason. See three systems of knowledge which all depend on faith contrasted with revelation from God. As we find ourselves in an increasingly irrational world, understand that it is only by studying and applying the Word of God that our culture can be transformed biblically.
