Meditation: Galatians – The desires of the flesh mentioned by Paul in this passage are in direct opposition with the Fruits of the Spirit that he also mentions. Peace cannot exist in a situation where there is discord, jealousy, and hatred. Neither can Self-Control exist in the same situation as fits of rage, drunkenness, orgies, and impurity. I pray that through the Holy Spirit we follow God’s desires for us instead of the flesh’s desires.
