Galatians 5:22- 23
This is an intense verse telling you that God gives you these specific fruits of the Holy Spirit. These fruits come not from ourselves but from the Holy Spirit. As in all things, God wants you to understand and obey these fruits, to have them shine through from the very depths of your heart for all to see. God wants all of us to enter into a holy union with Him. He wants to mold us, shape us, and transform us so that we can express the image of His Son. He does this by renewing our minds with more of Him so we can have right thinking in our thought process.
Jesus has already told us that He is the vine and we are the branches. Just as the branch draws its life from the vine, we must draw our life directly from Jesus. You have to be willing to work in cooperation with the Holy Spirit once He begins to start this process within you. Your job in all of this is to get into the Word to find out what God is trying to transform in you.
I’m always ready for God to transform me… for Him to lead me into deeper understanding of Him. I want to walk more like Jesus!
I will be studying the fruits, I pray, if it touches your heart, you will come along on this journey with me.
