How do we walk in the spirit?
First we must know the different types of people.
There are 3 the bible tells us about those walking in spirit vs. walking in the flesh.
Discern these types of people & we can have understanding for them.
#1 Natural Man
14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. (1 Corinthians 2:14)
This is the personal that is also known as the basic man.
Walking in darkness & hasn't accepted Jesus.
#2 Carnal Man
3 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. 2 I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; 3 for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men? 4 For when one says, “I am of Paul,” and another, “I am of Apollos,” are you not carnal? (1 Corinthians 3:1-4)
The person that has accepted Jesus but may be yielding to its flesh & not the spirit.
The flesh is contrary to the spirit & they war against each other.
#3 Spiritual Man
15 But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. 16 For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ. (1 Corinthians 2:15-16)
One that has a mind of Christ & submits their thoughts to God.
Walking in the spirit also produces fruits! We will know them by their fruits.
Which one are you?
If you look around in your every day life, have you encountered or can discern these types of people around?
These are great verses to read the chapters & evaluate where you are with your walk with Christ.
