When a tree or a plant is healthy, it will bloom with nutritious fruits too. Likewise, as we depend on God's power to change us. We live by the Spirit-working in our lives to produce Christ-like character in us. The fruit of the Spirit is evident when we allow God to mold us. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control will be all present in our lives. Here are 3 steps that we need to take in order to bear this fruit in our lives: 1. Decide to live by the spirit. (Galatians 5:16) 2. Be dependent on God's power to change you. (Zechariah 4:6) 3. Be directed by the Spirit in every situation. (Galatians 5:25)
A heart full of pride has eyes set upon himself. With a forehead so high, he wouldn't dare look low. Oh what a shame when his feet stumbled upon a rock. He would rather sink himself in the mud than to face up.The only source of wisdom is God. The question might be is how do we listen to God so that we would be wise? By allowing to deny ourselves from things that are hindering us from obeying God. This is tough but rest assured that when we obediently seek His will, we can be sure that He will direct us to make the right choices. And once we know His will, it could only be the right choice and we have the responsibility to embrace it and obey Him completely. “The proud person always wants to do the right thing, the great thing. But because he wants to do it in his own strength, he is fighting not with man, but with God.” - Kierkegaard
