F.l)istle (Gal. v. I6-24). Brethren: Walk in spirit, and ye will not fullil the lusts of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and tile Spirit against the flesh: for these are contrary one to another, so that ye do not whatever things ye will. But if ye are led by the Spirit, ye are not under the law. And the works of the flesh are mani- fest, which are fornication, unclean- ness, lasciviousness, luxury, idolatry, witchcraft, enmities, contentions, rivalries, wrath, quarrels, disputes, sects, envying, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and the like: of which I foretell you. as I have before said: that they who do such things shall not obtain the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is charity, joy, peace, l)atienee, mildness, goodness, h:)ngsuffering, meekness, faith, modesty, coutinence, chastity. Against such there is no law. But they who are of Christ. have crucifi- ed their flesh with its vices and lusts. Gospel tSt. Matt. vi. 24.33). At that time: Jesus said to his tile hlstiug of the flesh against tile spirit and tile spirit against the flesh, so that you do not the things that you would. That is, though in your heart you would rather listen to the promptings of your better and nobler natnre, yet sometimes it seems as if the flesh had the upper-hand, and you are tempted to think there is no use in trying any longer. Take courage and be consoled by the experience of St. Paul. Thrice he besought the Lord that a grievous temptation might depart from him, and he received the answer, "My grace is sufficient for |hee, for power is made perfect in infirfiaity." No one has described more vividly than St. Paul this conflict with us. "The good which I will," he says, "I do not, but tile evil which I will not that I do. For I am delighted with tile law of God, according to the inward man, but I see another law in nay nemhers fighting against the law of mind, and captivating me in the law of sin.
