About the Book

“Walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh; these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. Now the works of the flesh are evident; sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires”.

–– Galatians 5:16-24

This book will enlightens us on how we can lay down our flesh and live according to the Spirit, despite a world that is ever-changing, given to its every whim and intent on fulfilling every desire of the flesh as it presents itself. Come, let us take a walk together for a while as we discover the Spirit, the flesh and the tools available to us as children of God, to win the victory of Spirit over Flesh, for only then can we truly be called children of God.
