But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23
What does the Spirit of God, who through the hearing of God’s Word brings us to repent of our sins and trust in Christ Jesus, also work in us as fruits of faith in Christ? “Love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance.” The law forbids none of these things. In fact, they are necessary to the keeping of God’s commandments.
“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me” (Ps. 51:10). Amen.
