Big Fruit Goal

today's reading.

Galatians 5:16 But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh...

think about it.
What should be the evidence that you're walking by the Spirit? What should no longer characterize your life (5:19-21)? How does Spirit-led patience or longsuffering impact your life?

the blog.
Every time I read Galatians 5:22-23, I'm hit head on with the realization that exhibiting the fruit of the Spirit is a tall order and, while I do exhibit some of the elements most of the time, I have plenty of room for improvement. That's why I'm grateful for the fresh start I have each morning and that I have the Holy Spirit to help me combat the pull of those sinful desires of the flesh as I go about my day.

So how do you draw on the help and strength of the Holy Spirit? What does walking by the Spirit look like in your life? Tami W.
