“Step by step ooh baby , Gonna get to you girl , Step by step ooh baby …. “ oh uh.. well, sometimes NKOTB just stays in your head.
But not today. I had to google those lyrics, today I am singing about keeping in step with the Spirit in Gal 5:25. I think the Message’s paraphrase is good. We have more interesting things to do with our lives then to get got up comparing with each other. Lets live by the spirit. Lets turn this world upside down.
are you ready?
Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.
— Galatians 5:25 (NIV)
The Message (MSG)
25-26Since this is the kind of life we have chosen, the life of the Spirit, let us make sure that we do not just hold it as an idea in our heads or a sentiment in our hearts, but work out its implications in every detail of our lives. That means we will not compare ourselves with each other as if one of us were better and another worse. We have far more interesting things to do with our lives. Each of us is an original.
