“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23
You are different. You are not ordinary. You don’t fit in…and you’re not supposed to! As a child of God, you have something, rather Someone that the world desperately needs: you have the Holy Spirit of God living on the inside of you. You have a great Treasure on the inside. You have a Light that cannot be out, and a Power source that can’t be extinguished.
The Holy Spirit, resident within each believer of Jesus Christ, is there to give us power—power to live as children of God, walking in victory and fulfilling our destinies. He leads us. That means He steers us in the direction that God has designed for our lives and as we follow Him, we become more like Jesus and we are abundantly blessed.
As we yield to the Holy Spirit, the fruit of His presence and leadership is visible—there is evidence that we belong to Him.
We should become more loving, more joyful, more peaceful, more longsuffering, more kind, more good to others, more faithful, more gentle and we exhibit more self-control. If we are led by the Spirit we will be changed.
So…How is your fruit today? Is it blossoming in your life? What areas do you need to work on?
The Holy Spirit is here to help you!
