References: Galatians 6
The book of Galatians carefully lays out our position in Christ, (chapters 1-5), BEFORE we are given admonitions on how we are to live. This is a lesson for us. It is essential that we know who we are in Christ so that we will be enabled to live for him. It is a dangerous thing to rely on ourselves and thereby think that THAT will place us in right standing with God.
Galatians 5:25 tells us how we are to approach life as a believer: "Since we live by the Spirit (born again), let us (admonition) keep in step with the Spirit (discipline)." Keeping in step with the Holy Spirit is the very definition of discipleship. We will fail often, but we must be quick to repent and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit by learning to live according to God's Word.
