What does the normal Christian life look like? Moving on from his earlier doctrinal and theological arguments, in the final chapters of Galatians the Apostle Paul turns to illustrating what the Christian life is like. The key to chapters 5 and 6 is to remember that Paul simply wants to be helpful to his Christian friends – to us. He wants to illustrate what the normal Christian life looks like day in and day out, empowered by the Holy Spirit. He wants to teach us the difference between life in the flesh and life in the Spirit, and how to live it.
