Character of Christ
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23 (NIV)
There is a harvest to reap from your biblical faith and it is the fruit of His Spirit, not the wages of your works. When we our led by God’s Spirit, because we are feeding on God’s Word, we will produce God’s fruit. Like a tree whose fruit is easily seen and readily available to those near, so is our Christian character exposed to others for the purpose of refreshing.
Investing in our own religious works for character growth leaves us short of the prize and un-lasting. However, when we invest in learning from the Lord by keeping our focus on Him, we become changed into His character.
Let’s pray today that we may be so led by God’s Spirit that others will see the character of Christ when around us.
