Read the sermon text: Galatians 5:16-26
 
Read the sermon summary: Paul has clearly established that as believers we have freedom in Christ. This freedom removes the burden of the Law and circumcision. And it compels us to live differently than the false teachers around us. But what does this look like? We have been reconciled to God. Victory is won, yet sin remains an obstacle to our holiness. Paul takes the theology he has explained in the preceding chapters and applies it to the Christian life. He calls the Galatian believers to live out this freedom through yielding to the Spirit. He cautions them that walking by the Spirit is necessary to conquer the flesh. The works of the flesh are evident yet alluring. However, the believer who belongs to Christ pursues holiness with the knowledge that his flesh was crucified with Christ. Armed with this truth, we must move in obedience by yielding to the Spirit instead of the flesh.
 
Read the following song lyrics in relation to the sermon:
 
O Fount Of Love
O fount of love divine that flows
From my Savior's bleeding side
Where sinners trade their filthy rags
For His righteousness applied
Mercy cleansing ev'ry stain
Now rushing o'er us like a flood
There the wretch and vilest ones
Stand adopted through His blood
 
O mount of grace to Thee we cling
From the law hath set us free
Once and for all on Calv'ry's hill
Love and justice shall agree
Praise the Lord the price is paid
The curse defeated by the Lamb
We who once were slaves by birth
Sons and daughters now we stand
 
O well of joy is mine to drink
For my Lord has conquered death
Victorious forevermore
The ancient foe is laid to rest
Hallelujah Christ is King
Alive and reigning on the throne
Our tongues employed with hymns of praise
Glory be to God alone
 
From Him through Him to Him be all praise
