Galatians 5:22-25 | Juicy Fruit
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit.
- Galatians 5:22-25 ESV
Overview - Godly fruit grows on those who belong to Jesus and walk by the Spirit.
1. This fruit is a reflection of God's character.
2. This fruit grows where the flesh is dead.
3. This fruit is the natural result for those who live in submission to the Spirit.
Everyone want to be free. We want to do what we want to do, say what want to say, and live the way we want to live. But in reality, freedom is not so simple. At times, what feels like freedom is actually a harsher form of slavery. In the impassioned letter we call Galatians, the apostle Paul argues that many were confusing freedom with slavery. In contrast to the world’s misguided paths, there is only one way to be fully Liberated. Join us next week as we begin discovering how salvation by grace through faith in Jesus brings true freedom from the worst slavery.
