MORNINGTIME 3039
 
FOR ALL THE LAW IS FULFILLED IN ONE WORD, even in this; THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR AS THYSELF. But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another. This I say then, WALK IN THE SPIRIT, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. BUT if ye BE LED OF THE SPIRIT, ye are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these ; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is LOVE, JOY, PEACE, LONGSUFFERING, GENTLENESS, GOODNESS, FAITH, MEEKNESS, TEMPERANCE: AGAINST SUCH THERE IS NO LAW. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we LIVE IN THE SPIRIT, let us also WALK IN THE SPIRIT. Galatians 5:14-25. It's already understood that you are Obeying the First and Great Commandment,  "And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be IN THINE HEART": Deuteronomy 6:5-6. To Love the Lord, is A Heart Attitude, and after this is, Love Thy Neighbour. If these first two admonitions are "feasting with the Lord", then Living and Walking in The Spirit are "Dessert". To do this is to literally walk away feeling Full, Satisfied, and Content in all things with the Lord. To "Do" these Heart Attitudes is to be so Filled Full of the Lord, that there will be no place left for self, flesh, and the old man nature. In THIS, you WILL, Be Blessed.
