Gal 5:25 If we live in ( Instrumental (By)) in the Spirit, let us also walk (Greek word which is defined as “marching in the footsteps of a soldier”) in (Instrumental (By)) the Spirit.
It is a given that we should be living our lives not in the present day world system, but in the domain, influence, and sovereignty of the world of the Holy Spirit.
Because we are being continually affected and influenced by the Spirit, in that influence and effect we must march in step as soldiers so that the Spirit’s influence can go on, deepen, intensify, and continue interrupted.
In the gospel of John, we find number of instances in which the Lord Jesus tells us that we are not of this world system.
In Galatians five and twenty-five, we then see the apostle Paul telling us that it is a given that we should be living in the world of the Spirit.
In Galatians five and twenty-five we find a wonderful example of location and instrumentality.
We live in the world of the Holy Spirit, and must march as a soldier in step to the Spirit’s workings back through us as He instrumentally influences and affect us.
Paul exhorts us to live continually in the world of the Holy Spirit, so that every action of our lives becomes permeated, influenced, affected, and controlled by the work, power, strength, and liberty of the Holy Spirit.
Victory and liberty in the Lord is found in proportion to how much the Spirit can control and take over our every action.
Victory is not found in our trying to overcome.
It is found in our being submerged deep enough into the world of the Holy Spirit so that He can influence and affect us at every point.
We are filled with the Spirit, in proportion to how much the Spirit is working back through us to influence, affect, control, and overtake our every action of ours.
Paul tells us in Galatians five and twenty-five that our lives must be lived BY THE INSTRUMENTALITY of the Spirit’s actions.
