“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-
and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God”
– Ephesians 2:8

Walking in the Spirit – Praying in the Spirit PART 1 – SERMON – June 21st, 1987

Series Summary:

Walking in the Spirit is a 5 part series that took place from June 21st through July 12th, 1987.   Walking in the Spirit at its core is the teaching of the path that men and women need to become skilled at walking in the Holy Spirit.  At the time this was a very powerful message that was in Pastor John’s heart.

Sermon Summary:

This series starts on Father’s Day building upon John’s previous weeks sermons about putting to death the flesh through the Spirit.  “We need to deal with the things of the flesh through the Spirit”, John says.  John then speaks on how prayer is often the main way we start to “walk in the Spirit.”

I have found that the only way to live victoriously is by walking in the Spirit.”

-Pastor John Casteel

Bible Quote:

If indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus, that, in reference to your former manner of life, you lay aside the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, and that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind

-Ephesians 4:21-23




  1. “The remaining in the vine process is what living continually in the Spirit is. Just as the vine withers the minute it becomes disconnected from its life so do we begin to wither, even if we cant see it, we begin to wither spiritually the minute we start living our own way again.”

  2. There are many truths covered in this sermon. A powerful truth about experience starts around 11 min and runs to around 15 min,
    “we must believe God’s word in spite of our own experience”
