Bible Study: Works of the Flesh – 1_1 1

Lesson One: Works of the Flesh

Text: Galatians 5:19-20

Memory Verse: "For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die; but if ye

live through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall

live. (Rom. 8:13)


Works of the flesh in Biblical terms carries the same weight and

suffers the same fate as witchcraft. Just as a witch must die, so also

is he/she who lives by the works of the flesh. Apostles Paul in the

text we read presented sin in four categories namely:

1. Sins of lust

2. Sins of idolatry and witchcraft

3. Sins of temper and

4. Sins of appetite.

Now if withcraft by evil powers or magic is listed along with works of

the flesh, therefore the works of the flesh must be taken seriously

and dealt with like evil powers. It also means that any Christian that

is not livinung a Spirit-filled life is either a witch by evil powers

or a witch by the works of the flesh.
