Walking in the Light of God’s People
Loving God’s People #6 – Expressing the Fruit of the Spirit as a Lifestyle and Identity
As you dwell in Christ and the Holy Spirit dwells in you, the Fruit of the Spirit becomes a part of your nature and identity. You were created to bear the Fruit of the Spirit! Be encouraged by the work of God already in you, and ask Him specifically how he wants you to continue to obey and align yourself to His will. Then, do it!
