Live By The Spirit

If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. Let us not become boastful, 
challenging one another, envying one another. Galatians 5:25-26

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins so that He might rescue us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be the glory forevermore. Amen. Galatians 1:3-5
