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 5:21-23
It stuns me how easy it is, even for myself, to disregard the gift of the Holy Spirit in our lives. God in the form of the Holy Spirit...right here...right now...guiding, directing, counseling, comforting...all for the taking. Yet, we do not see, therefore, we do not believe, therefore, we do not receive. Yet, there is evidence of the Holy Spirit for those who do believe...love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
You see, you have to believe, in order to receive, in order to see.
