22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. (NIV)
Over the next several days, I'll take a word a day during my study time and get a little more in depth as to what God is saying with each of those traits so that I may apply them more to my life.
These traits contrast the traits of verses 19-21 known as the acts of the sinful nature:
19 The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. (NIV)
I'll do a summary and post on here in addition to my other posts for the day. Don't hold me to every day for the next 9 days due to my trip to DC this weekend, but for the most part that is the schedule I will try to stick to.
