In the church, we are studying the book of Galatians. Two verses that stands out to me are from Chapter 5 verses 22 & 23 But the fruit of the Spirit are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things, there is no law.
Just because one is a believer the Bible doesn’t state that our life will be easy. In fact, we face challenges just like others do, but we are often held to a higher standard.
As Christians, the Holy Spirit lives in each of us. We are to be obedient to God by avoiding temptation. By trusting God and living daily by the fruits of the Spirit we can have victory in life.
Crosswalk.com has an excellent in-depth devotional by Kathy Howard that covers each fruit: What Are the Fruit of the Spirit?
I pray that you can live by the fruit of the Spirit as God designed and asked us to do.
