Fruit of the Spirit

Not long ago, a seasoned marathoner had just crossed the finish line with an impressive time, when he suffered a heart attack and died. From the outside, he looked to be the picture of health, but a fatal condition was hiding on the inside. Every one of us needs a visit to the doctor to make sure everything is working alright and that we don’t have an unknown, serious, internal condition. The same is true with our spiritual lives. Our nature is to be creatures of habit, we tend to go through life on autopilot. We can easily get off the path Jesus has shown us, resulting in our spirit, not enjoying, the good health that God created IT for. John 10:10 Jesus Said “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. In the same way that the doctor evaluates us to diagnose potential physical problems, God has given us a process of evaluating spiritual problems in our lives: Our Text, Galatians 5:22-23: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness & self-control.
