Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love. Galatians 5:13
But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Galatians 5:23
Paul tells us that Jesus has set us free from all self-righteousness. He challenges the Christians in Galatian to give room to the Spirit of Jesus.
Our life gets so easily “rule based”. We even often try to produce this wonderful fruit of the Spirit by our own effort. Only then to look down on others, to become bitter and self-righteous. We must let God do his excellent work in us.
Jesus, thank you that we can know you and your love. Fill me today with your Spirit. Help me to love people with your love! Amen
