Galatians 5:13-15 and 16-22
The Spirit produces character traits, not specific actions. We can’t go out and do these things, and we can’t obtain them by trying to get them. If we want the fruit of the Spirit to develop in our lives, we must recognize that all these characteristics are found in Christ. Thus, the way to grow them is to join our lives to his (see John 15:4,5). We must know him, love him, remember him, imitate him. The result will be that we will fulfill the intended purpose of the law—loving God and others. Which of these qualities most needs further development in your life?
