Before the fruit comes, the Word has to be planted, watered and nurtured. The fruit of the Spirit becomes evident in our lives, when our hearts have been transformed, and able to reproduce and bring forth fruit from the Word-seed. Listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy on December 4, 2016, with key Scripture Galatians 5:19–24.
The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 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.
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.Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. —Galatians 5:19–24
