Can We Talk – Homework Week #5, Day #5

Changing clothes – Putting on the New. Galatians 5:22-25. Did you glance at this scripture and realize where we were going? Have you memorized these verses as a child? The presence of these qualities is evidence of the Holy Spirit’s presence in one’s life. If we allow the Spirit control of our lives, this fruit will manifest the evidence.

Self-examination of this evidence can be painful. Especially when we don’t see the display of fruit that we imagined would be present. But God is so good to hear and answer our cries to Him to teach us to walk in His ways. And when we step out in faith and obedience, the fruit will come. Hallelujah!

A question in the study guide about what God would have me do to begin to practicing the fruit of the Spirit led to immediate action and lots of conversation with God.
