The summer before my junior year at Tech, I participated in a summer small group with the sweetest group of ladies. We read through Galatians and the focused on the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control. I remember that study so well, probably because that summer had such a tremendous impact on my heart.
But as much time as we spent in that study, I often find myself trying to display the fruit on my own, apart from the Spirit. And time and time again, I realize that I am completely incapable. There is no good in me; the only light that shines through me originates in Him. So this week, I'm reflecting on this verse as a reminder that if I walk with Him, everything else will follow.
