BIBLE PASSAGE: Galatians 5:16-18 (NKJV)‬

16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

INTRODUCTION: The life of the Christian is a constant battle between our sinful nature and our new nature in Christ (Gal. 5:17). Unfortunately, just because we have accepted Christ does not mean we are automatically immune to sinful temptations (Rom. 7:14-25). Sometimes, it may feel like we are trapped in a desire to reach for the sinful thing rather than the godly things. This does not always have to be the case. We can overcome the flesh.

TEACHING REVIEW: Galatians 5:16-18

The Apostle Paul admonishes the church in Galatia in the above scripture
i. Walk in the spirit……………..v16.
ii. For the flesh …………v17a.
iii. And these are contrary…………v17b.
iv. So that…………v17c.
v. But if ye…………..v18.




A. Now that we are in Christ:

i. we have the power to conquer the sinful desire of the flesh (2Cor. 5:17; Rom. 8:37).
ii. The very presence of the Holy Spirit in our hearts means we can now choose godliness over sinfulness (Philip. 1:22).
iii. The choice is 100% OURS (Deut. 30:19).
iv. We are no longer a slave to our sinful nature (Rom. 6:14, 18).
v. We can choose love over hate, patience over hostile frustration, faithfulness over disloyalty, self-control over lustful desires…etc.
vi.This is the beauty of having the Holy Spirit-He gives us the POWER to fight (Philip. 2:13; 4:13).
B. All we must do to tap into that power is to practice obedience to God’s word and his direction (John. 15:4, 10, 14; Col. 3:16; Ps. 1:2-3).
Have you ever overcome the desire to do what is evil? Share your experience.


A. Teacher should ask the students if it is possible to have all the components of the fruit of the Spirit.

Some Christians have asked if it is possible to produce all the components to the fruit of the spirit which are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. This seems like a lot to work on.

i. First, We should remember that God will not give us a load we cannot bear (Matt. 11:29-30).
ii. Second, the ‘yoke’ of bearing the fruit of the Holy Spirit is not just possible, it is mandatory (Luke 1:37; Matt. 5:48).

B. However, since the enemies of our Salvation – the devil and the flesh – will not give up easily on us, we are bound to face the temptation of yielding to occasionally (1Peter 5:8-10). Therefore, we must:

i. Continue to work at attaining perfection (Philip. 2:12),
ii. Surrender totally to the dictates of the Holy spirit
iii. Resist the devil (James 4:7).
iv. Make no provision for the flesh (Rom. 13:14).
v. Keep working at bearing all the components of the fruit of the spirit; it is possible (Philip.

vi. We must on daily basis, take steps to nurture our relationship with Jesus so that we can grow to look more like him in his manner, attitude and actions (HEB. 12:2; Philip 2:5).

Is it possible for someone who has just surrendered his/her life to Christ to possess all the components of the fruit of the Spirit?


Though we may struggle and fail, we will surely conquer the flesh and bear the fruit of the holy spirit. We ought to daily strive for, work for, and yearn for the fruit of the spirit


Heavenly Father, please let Your Holy Spirit constantly dwell in me so I can find it easy to manifest Your fruit.


Student should mention five (5) dangers a believers is prone to when he/she does not manifest the fruit of the spirit (2×5=10Marks).

    O how I love Thee well,
    I am happy, it makes me glad
    To rejoice at Thy birth.

    Thy friend friendship suits me well,
    Both young and will sing Thy song,
    We long for Sunday School.
  3. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
    Christ was Thy first teacher,
    The Holy Spirit, great teacher,
    Does manifest in thee.
  4. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
    This testimony is sure,
    That God, the Father Almighty,
    Poured His blessing on Thee
  5. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
    Though the sun be so bright,
    Or if the clouds be black with rain,
    I’ll be in Sunday School.
  6. O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day
    I rejoice to see Thee,
    Will thou pass over me today?
    Without my being blest?
