“Fruit” of the Spirit….

OPAL'S JOURNAL - "TO KNOW GOD" ......

“The Fruit of the Spirit”-
not something made, manufactured or engineered…
They are the results of a life of Faith created by God.
We do not produce it by our own effort.
We cannot purchase it from another.
Neither is it a reward for good deeds;

The love of God manifested in His people draws like a magnet.
The demonstration of God’s love to us motivates us to love others.
We come to God because none of us have it in ourselves –
to acquire any of these qualities on our own.

We cannot make ourselves Joyful –
Find Peace-Be Patient-Gentle or Kind-
Be Faithful or show self control –
Not without God being in our lives –
 Because these qualities manifest God’s character.

Please help me to model Your love and values to those around me.
