But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!
— Galatians 5:22-23 NLT

Key Thought

We don't have the personal power to produce holiness through our own efforts. God's miracle of transformation happens in us when we yield to the Spirit's leading in our lives. Christ-likeness takes shape in us through the daily work of the Spirit! Step-by-step, we learn to display the righteous character and gracious compassion of Jesus!

Today's Prayer

O Father, I want to be like Jesus! Produce your character in me through the work of the Holy Spirit. I pray this in Jesus' name. Amen.
