Good Fruit - Today with Allen Jackson - September 29, 2017

Good Fruit

Galatians 5:22-23 (NIV®)             

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

This passage begins by listing nine separate expressions of the Spirit of God that will be made evident in our character when we choose to cooperate with Him. The next statement is truly astounding: “Against such things there is no law.” When you and I choose to cooperate with the Spirit of God, to allow the fruit of the Spirit to emerge in our character, there is no law—no physical law, no spiritual law—that supersedes those things. We are not by nature gentle, patient, self-controlled, faithful, good, kind folk. The greatest demonstration of the power of God on your behalf or mine is to see the fruit of the Spirit emerge within us.

PRAYER

Heavenly Father, I desire to see the fruit of Your Spirit in my life. Thank You that Your power to accomplish Your plans and purposes for my life supersedes every other power in the earth. Holy Spirit, guide my thoughts and my words and my behavior as I seek to live in a way that demonstrates Your work in me. May Your fruits be evident so that the world would see them and marvel at Your power in those who call themselves followers of Jesus. In His name I pray, amen.
