Galatians 5:22-23

When we allow the Holy Spirit to control our lives, He changes us. With His help, we’re able to develop certain characteristics – in the bible these are referred to as the ‘Fruit of the Spirit’ in Galatians 5:22-23.
These characteristics (fruit) are Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-Control. 

Today we looked at PEACE and discussed how the Holy Spirit produces in us PEACE with Each Other and PEACE within our Problems…

He produces in us a Peace with Each Other that enables us to be gracious, forgiving and patient with one another. Peace with Each other so that we can disagree well. Peace with Each other so that we build each other up with our words. 

He also produces a Peace within our Problems. Peace is not the absence of problems, but God’s presence within the problems. 

Praying you’d know God’s Peace this week.
