Have you ever wondered what exactly were works of the Flesh and works of the Spirit? I did one day and as with everything else in life, I found the answers in the Bible. As most Christians already know, works of the Flesh are part of this world and the works of the Spirit are of God. Below are the pertinent verses from Galatians in the New Testament. Remember, we should all strive to avoid all things of the Flesh and try to live everyday in the Spirit!!
Galatians 5:19-23, 25-26 ESV
“Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.”
