“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.“
Every Christian can be certain that God desires our continual presence with Him, both on Earth and in Heaven.
When Jesus died on the cross, He provided us with our heavenly passport—the Holy Spirit, granting access to the Father and solidifying our identity as His children. This identity is evident through the fruit of the Spirit.
As carriers of the Holy Spirit, these qualities should consistently manifest in our lives. They are interconnected, originating from one source—the Holy Spirit. Just as sweet and bitter water cannot flow from the same spring, neither should sinful works coexist with the fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:19-21).
Our primary identifiers as carriers of the Holy Spirit and children of God should consistently be the fruit of the Spirit. We should refuse anything contrary. Without the Holy Spirit, we cannot have access to the kingdom of God, and the only way to know we have the Holy Spirit is by exhibiting the fruit of the Spirit.
Study Galatians 5:13-26; James 2:9-11.
Challenge yourself to manifest the entire fruit of the Spirit with the Holy Spirit’s guidance and walk in this consciousness.
