Today's Verse: Galatians 5:22-23

Wednesday, March 10, 2021

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
— Galatians 5:22-23

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

When the Holy Spirit is alive in our hearts, the character of God comes to life in us, the Spirit conforms us, with increasing transformation, to become like Christ (2 Corinthians 3:17-18). This transformation to Jesus occurs as we place our focus on Jesus and pursue knowing him. This transformation is the goal of our lives as Jesus' disciples (Colossians 1:28-29; Luke 6:40). As we become more and more like Jesus, we then display his character, these nine qualities that are the fruit of the Spirit!

My Prayer...

Thank you, dear Father, for your Spirit within me. I consciously yield my will and heart to your Spirit's transforming control in my life. Please produce in me the fruit that pleases you and brings you glory. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
