Jesus made the first choice, didn’t He? The choice about living a sinless life and dying a sacrificial death and rising again. We have the second choice. We either receive that or we don’t. And the moment we receive Christ, the moment we apply and appropriate the redemptive work of Jesus on Calvary, what happens? Jesus places the person of the Holy Spirit inside your life and mine. And the Holy Spirit’s full time job is to help you and to help me become a producer of fruit. I am talking about farmer’s market type spiritual fruit.
The Apostle Paul highlighted this concept in Galatians 5. “But the fruit of the spirit….” We can’t manufacture it ourselves. “…is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control.”© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young
