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.

Duration: 1 hr 5 mins 27 secs
How do we cast all our cares on God? Listen to this lesson to learn that this involves submitting to authority and obedience to God’s Word. Find out that when we have genuine humility God will lift us up, but that going through the motions of worship must be accompanied by a humble mental attitude. See that our example is that Christ did not depend upon Himself to bear the suffering on the Cross but was totally dependent on God the Father and that should be our mindset when we face adversity and suffering.

Can we do something so terrible that God can never forgive us? Listen to this lesson to learn that every sin mankind has ever committed or will commit was nailed to the Cross without exception. Because of God’s grace we are never without hope for forgiveness.
