Flesh vs. Spirit Isn't Two Warring Natures | In the Meantime, pt. 4
Flesh vs. Spirit is often talked about as if Christians have two natures that are battling within them, the flesh (the so-called "sinful nature") and the Spirit. But this fails to pay close enough attention to Paul’s language … and how it’s shaped by the already, not yet overlap we’ve been talking about. Paul speaks of either being of the flesh or of the Spirit - both/and.
So in this episode we'll explore:
two key texts - Romans 8:1-9 and Galatians 5:16-24.
what Paul means by flesh
how to walk by the Spirit
So that, here in the meantime, we can follow Jesus more fully. Because you can’t follow Jesus unless you walk with the Spirit!
