6. Oh brothers and sisters, if you and I are going to survive these PERILOUS TIMES, we have got to STAY PERSISTENT IN OUR PRAYERS.
KEY #1: WE MUST STAND FIRM ON THE WORD OF GOD KEY #2: WE MUST STAY PERSISTENT IN OUR PRAYERS.
Now here is ……..
KEY #3: WE MUST STAY IN STEP WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT
Scripture: Galatians 5:16
1. What does it mean to “walk in the Spirit?” Let me use an analogy I think we can all relate to.
ILLUSTRATION: When you were growing up do you remember those times when you took hold of your dad or mom’s hands and placed your feet on top of their feet and walked around the room? Every time they raised one of their feet, you raised your foot. You see, what you were doing was “WALKING IN STEP” with them.
2. Now we can’t physically walk with the Holy Spirit so how do we walk with Him?
Actually walking with the Spirit involves two things, one is a negative the other is a positive.
(a) To walk with the Spirit means we DON’T walk in the ways of the FLESH. In other words, we don’t live to PLEASE ourself.
If you will skip down to verses 19-21 you will see what that means.
