How to Walk According to the Spirit

Taken from notes from a teaching by Mike Bickle on "How to Walk According to the Spirit".

We live according to the Spirit:
  • By living by what the Word says concerning who we are in our spirit in Christ. ("But He who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him." 1 Cor 6:17)
  • By living with awareness of our born-again spirit that has been made righteous. ("If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation... that we might become the righteousness of God." 2 Cor 5:17-21)
  • By continually dialoguing with the indwelling Spirit.
  • By the confession of faith, that is, speaking back to the Lord what He has said about our spirits.
  • By growing in confidence that we are enjoyed by God.
  • By using the authority of the name of Jesus to stand against the works of darkness in our lives and in others'.
  • By being aware of our commission or divine assignment that gives us real purpose
We live according to the flesh:
  • By living in ignorance and unbelief about who we are in Christ.
  • By our primary orientation to life coming from our natural experiences (bodily appetites, five senses, emotions, and circumstances) without any reference to the truths of the Word.
  • By approaching God with condemnation and with a sense of defeat and intimidation when sinful desires arise in us.
  • By filling our minds with immoral things that stir up lust.
  • By speaking things, going places, and yielding to peer pressure that comes from friends walking in sin.
