Class #47: The works of the flesh are OBVIOUS–and thus St. Paul lists them for us. Those who claim to be Christian, while at the same time perpetuating these obvious works of the flesh, are not Christian at all. Those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.
Even while St. Paul is pointing out fake Christians, he is warning the true Christians to walk in the Spirit and not gratify the desires of the lust of the flesh. The Holy Spirit leads Christians to love their neighbor. Believers are not moved by the Law, but by the freedom of the Gospel.
St. Paul reminds us that we belong to Jesus Christ. When we recognize the desires of the flesh to do these works, we repudiate them. We do not consent to do them, nor do we resolve to live in them. We avoid the works of the flesh. If we find that we have done them, we confess them.
