The Spirit fights us to keep us from doing what we want (Gal 5:16-17) – A Higher Things® Video Short

Paul is clear. The sinful nature and the Spirit in you are constantly at war, fighting over what we want to do vs. what we don’t want to do. And we convince ourselves that we want to do all the right things, but that’s not what we want to do at all. What we really want to do is sin! That’s our fallen nature. The Spirit fights us to keep us from following those sinful desires.
