Spiritual Motivation vs Fleshly Imitation

The works of the spirit and maneuvers of the flesh NEVER go hand in hand. They are actual like oil and water, which cannot mix and only separate. When u begin something motivated by spiritual enlightenment and direction, u cannot expect it to be completed by leaning to your own understanding and giving into the flesh. Be mindful of the nature of the works u begin, and the motivating force behind it...This will determine your success or downfall...

 Galatians 3: 2-6 (NIV)
2 I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by believing what you heard? 3 Are you so foolish? After beginning by means of the Spirit, are you now trying to finish by means of the flesh?4 Have you experienced so much in vain—if it really was in vain? 5 So again I ask, does God give you his Spirit and work miracles among you by the works of the law, or by your believing what you heard? 6 So also Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.
