A WAY OUT: Living By The Spirit
—Mike Teel, Pastor
I Corinthians 10:12-13 12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall! 13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
Galatians 5:16-17 16 16 So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want.
A BETTER WAY
“WALK BY THE SPIRIT ”
THE TWO NATURES ...Romans 7:15
TWO SIMPLE KEY THOUGHTS
WHAT YOU FEED GROWS
WHAT YOU STARVE DIES
OVERCOMING THE APPETITES

What does this Holy Spirit do?
Romans 8:12-13 (NLT)

the power of the Spirit of God will heal me and make me whole.
FOLLOW THE PROMPTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
We need to learn to TAKE NOTE OF EVERY TIME YOU SENSE GOD PROMPTING YOU.
LIVE IT OUT
