Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Galatians 5:25

_ _ in ... in — rather, as Greek, “If we live (see on Galatians 5:24) BY the Spirit, let us also walk (Galatians 5:16; Galatians 6:16) BY the Spirit.” Let our life in practice correspond to the ideal inner principle of our spiritual life, namely, our standing by faith as dead to, and severed from, sin, and the condemnation of the law. “Life by (or ‘in’) the Spirit” is not an occasional influence of the Spirit, but an abiding state, wherein we are continually alive, though sometimes sleeping and inactive.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Galatians 5:13-26.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Galatians 5:25

If we live by the Spirit — If we are indeed raised from the dead, and are alive to God, by the operation of his Spirit. Let us walk by the Spirit — Let us follow his guidance, in all our tempers, thoughts, words, and actions.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Galatians 5:25

If we (l) live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

(l) If we are indeed endued with the quickening Spirit, who causes us to die to sin, and live to God, let us show it in our deeds, that is, by holiness of life.
