The Essential 100, Day 82
What does the Spirit look like in our lives? Are we allowing the Spirit work and move through us because if we are, there are some specific characteristics that will be evident in our life. Read Galatians 5:16-6:10.
The fruit of the Holy Spirit is the listing of the characteristics that God’s Holy Spirit lives out in our lives. These are not suggestions and they are not items that we get to pick and choose from. All of these are to be evident in our life.
As we look at our life and the way that we interact with other people, how would we characterize those interactions? How would other people characterize those interactions? You see, it’s not just about what we think we’re doing and the perception that we have our own actions, it’s really about how God perceives our actions and how God understands our truest motivations.
If we are following God and allowing him to work and move and live through our lives, then others will see the fruit of the Spirit in our life as well. How in control of our lives to we allow the Spirit to be?
