SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:25

Si vivimos por el Espíritu, andemos tambin en el Espíritu.

Clarke's Bible Commentary - Galatians 5:25

Verse 25. If we
live in the Spirit] If we profess to believe a spiritual religion, let us walk in the Spirit - let us show in our lives and conversation that the Spirit of God dwells in us.

John Gill's Bible Commentary

Ver. 25. If we
live in the Spirit , etc..] Or by the Spirit, as all do that are spiritually alive. Sin has not only brought on men a corporeal death, and made them liable to an eternal one, but has also induced upon them a spiritual or moral death; they are dead in trespasses and sin, nor can they quicken themselves, nor can any creature give them life; not the ministers of the word, nor the angels in heaven, only the blessed Spirit is the spirit of life from Christ; who entering into them, frees them from the law of sin and death, and implants a principle of spiritual life in them, whereby they live a life of faith on Christ, of holiness from him, and communion with him: and this the apostle makes use of, as an argument with believers to walk after the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit : or by the Spirit; by his help and assistance, according to the rule of his word, and under his influence and direction as a guide, to which he had before advised in ( Galatians 5:18).

Matthew Henry Commentary

Verses 16-26 - If it be our care to act under the guidance and power of the blesse Spirit, though we may not be freed from the stirrings and opposition of the
corrupt nature which remains in us, it shall not have dominio over us. Believers are engaged in a conflict, in which they earnestl desire that grace may obtain full and speedy victory. And those wh desire thus to give themselves up to be led by the Holy Spirit, are no under the law as a covenant of works, nor exposed to its awful curse Their hatred of sin, and desires after holiness, show that they have part in the salvation of the gospel. The works of the flesh are man and manifest. And these sins will shut men out of heaven. Yet what numbers, calling themselves Christians, live in these, and say the hope for heaven! The fruits of the Spirit, or of the renewed nature which we are to do, are named. And as the apostle had chiefly name works of the flesh, not only hurtful to men themselves, but tending to make them so to one another, so here he chiefly notices the fruits of the Spirit, which tend to make Christians agreeable one to another, a well as to make them happy. The fruits of the Spirit plainly show, tha such are led by the Spirit. By describing the works of the flesh an fruits of the Spirit, we are told what to avoid and oppose, and what we are to cherish and cultivate; and this is the sincere care an endeavour of all real Christians. Sin does not now reign in their mortal bodies, so that they obey it, Ro 6:12, for they seek to destro it. Christ never will own those who yield themselves up to be the servants of sin. And it is not enough that we cease to do evil, but we must learn to do well. Our conversation will always be answerable to the principle which guides and governs us, Ro 8:5. We must se ourselves in earnest to mortify the deeds of the body, and to walk in newness of life. Not being desirous of vain-glory, or unduly wishin for the esteem and applause of men, not provoking or envying on another, but seeking to bring forth more abundantly those good fruits which are, through Jesus Christ, to the praise and glory of God __________________________________________________________________

Vincent's NT Word Studies

25. Lipsius makes this verse the beginning of ch. 6. Weizsacker begins that chapter with ver. 26. There seems to be no sufficient reason. Ver. 25 is connected naturally with the immediately preceding line of thought. "Such being your principle of life, adapt your
conduct (walk) to it." The hortatory form of ver. 26, and its contents, fall in naturally with the exhortation to walk by the Spirit, and with the reference to biting and devouring, ver. 15, and envyings, ver. 21. The connection of the opening of ch. 6 with the close of ch. 5 is not so manifest; and the address brethren and the change to the second person (vi. 1) seem to indicate a new section. In the Spirit (pneumati). Better, by the Spirit, the dative being instrumental as ver. 16.

Walk (stoicwmen). A different word from that in ver. 16. Only in Paul, except Acts xxi. 24. From stoicov a row. Hence, to walk in line; to march in battle order (Xen. Cyr. vi. 3, 34). Sunstoicei anewereth to, Galatians iv. 25 (note). See also on stoiceia elements, Gal. iv. 3. Paul uses it very graphically, of falling into line with Abraham's faith, Rom. iv. 12.

Robertson's NT Word Studies

5:25 {By the Spirit let us also walk} (pneumati kai stoicwmen). Present subjunctive (volitive) of stoicew, "Let us also go on walking by the Spirit." Let us make our steps by the help and guidance of the Spirit.
