Alexandria Covenant Church
Living by the Power of the Holy Spirit
The Christian is life hard. In fact, it is impossible without the presence and power of the Holy Spirit in us. As Christians, we are called to walk by the Spirit, which means that we are to rely or depend on the power of the Holy Spirit to guide and influence our lives. To walk in step with the Spirit requires that we submit our lives to the Holy Spirit’s control, and that we respond in obedience to the work of the Spirit and the work of the word of God in our lives. -------------- Do you ever feel like you are shackled and chained to the never-ending pursuit of things that are supposed to be life-giving only to realize they are lifeless and leave you feeling empty in the end? Join us on a journey through the book of Galatians where you will meet Jesus and discover the life-giving reality of the true gospel. The true gospel has the power to break the chains of sin and self-righteousness that lead to death and give life and freedom to those who live by faith in Jesus Christ. Not the kind of freedom that allows us to live however we want, but a freedom that helps us to live the way God wants. In Christ, we have been set free to live free!

Challenge: The Christian life is possible only through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit in us. To walk by the Spirit requires a daily surrender of our lives to the control of the Holy Spirit over our lives. It is the daily commitment to trade my will, my desire, and my gratification for the will of God and the fruit of the Spirit in my life. We do this when we live in obedience to the word of God and the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. This is what a Spirit-filled life is, and when we walk by the Spirit, we can have confidence that we will not live to gratify the desires of the flesh, but we will live to the glory of God.
