In Galatians 5:16-26, Paul says that every believer is engaged in a fight between the flesh and the Spirit. The flesh represents the sinful ways we turn our desires of God’s good gifts into abnormal, over-desires. The Sprit, on the other hand, works within us to produce fruit that makes us more like Jesus. Paul tells us that since we are Christ Jesus, Christians must engage in the fight, so that the over-desires of the flesh are subdued and the desires of the Spirit are fruitful.
