“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” (Galatians 5.22-23 NIV).
When we are influence by the Fruits of the Spirit, we are beyond reproach and the Law cannot touch us. The Fruits of the Spirit only grow where the Spirit is manifesting itself. The Law was set as parameters for our lives before Jesus Christ came to give us His holiness. Now that we have holiness through faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus, the Holy Spirit can live in us by grace. When we water the Holy Spirit with prayer, the Bible and obedience, the full presence of God becomes more powerful and more plentiful in our lives. When circumstances press down on us and people ridicule us, the Holy Spirit’s fruit in our lives will present themselves in full force. We can’t be condemned because the law cannot denounce any one of the Fruits of the Spirit. When we walk in love, joy, peace forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control, none of the world’s shame can penetrate us. We will be so full of God’s Spirit and His fruit that we will walk on another dimension above the noise and confusion of the chaos below. The enemy of our souls will try to knock us down with his evil schemes, but nothing he does will ever touch us if we continue in the Fruits of the Spirit.
“So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4.7 NLT).
