The Fruit of the Spirit (12 of 16)
Series: Being Set Free - Galatians
I. LUST OF THE FLESH

There is enough power in your life, enough power in this church for God to work in such a mighty, miraculous way through us but how can we have that power released? That's what you and I need to discover from the book of Galatians.
