I believe that it is an attempt to keep "the Law." Galatians is a dicotomy of Grace and Works. At least that's the way I read it. I will have opposition I know. Walking in the flesh is opposed to walking in the Spirit. One creates fighting and such the other produces the Fruit of the Spirit. If you don't see Love, Peace, Joy........................... you can bank on it being flesh. I love the Sarah and Hagar verses. Sarah got pregnant because of a promise. Hagar because of a stipulation in the law. Sarah by grace, Hagar by flesh.
