Galatians 5:22-23 says, But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is not law".

What happens when we are called to love the unlovable?  What if we don't have the patience required?  What if joy is not within our reach?  If the Spirit lives in us so also should these attributes, but I will be the first to admit my own failures.  However, God does not call me to live by the Spirit without the Spirit. 

Galatians 5:25 says, "If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit". 

My ability to love is based on the power in me, not in my own ability (thankfully).  The more I am filled with the spirit and surrender my own identity, the more my fruit increases and thus the ability to live as Christ lived, with love, joy, peace, patience, etc.

Amazing blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring
writers? I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost
on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a
paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm
completely confused .. Any tips? Cheers!
