This is what may be the first of many on this subject.
Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
:23 Meekness, temperance; against such there is no law.
:24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
Eph 5:9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth)
:10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
Love, joy, peace! Wow just the first three are awesome aren't they? And then the list goes on to include so much more.
How do we grow these things in our life? We crucify the flesh and live in the Spirit. Sounds easy right? NOT! Flesh doesn't like being crucified does it? And walking in the Spirit? Well flesh really doesn't like that because it has to deny some things and do others that it would rather not.
Mt 16:24 Then said Jesus unto His disciples, " If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me."
Take up his cross, that shows right there it won't be easy to follow Jesus and show forth the fruit of the Spirit. But it is so worth the price.
