A Daily Devotion for Monday Match 4


Galatians 5:22-23


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


What can one say to this? I can say there are times when these "fruits" feel inaccessible. Conflicts can bring out a different set of "fruits". When we are taken over by anger, we are not in a right relationship with God. Practice, practice, practice.


Holy Lord, help me to see when I am out of sync with you. Help me to see the fruits of the Spirit as life-vests within my reach, always nearby if not in hand. Amen

Galatians 5:22-23


If we strive to have a good attitude, we must listen to the Holy Spirit. We do this by worshipping together, learning our Bibles, and much prayer. with these activities, come the fruits of the spirit.

Prayer: Gracious God, May I always be seeking you through your words and example. Amen

This is telling me to get to the fruit you have to have the spirit, and sometimes I don’t feel the spirit because I worry too much

Galatians 5:22-23 Our goal to live by the fruit of the Spirit becomes especially urgent when we contrast it to what Paul outlined as the “acts of the flesh” in verses 19-21 - sexual immorality, impurity, debauchery, idolatry and witchcraft, hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy, drunkenness, orgies, and the like. When I think about which group appears to dominate the world around us, it can be disheartening. By calling to mind in prayer and meditation all the times I have experienced the fruit of the Spirit from others offers hope and the desire to live in kind, pushing back against the acts of the flesh.
