Evidence of God's Spirit

Balwyn AnglicanComment


This week we bring to a conclusion our series on the Holy Spirit. From what we’ve heard we might desire the Spirit. But what is the evidence of God’s Spirit at work in our lives. The Apostle Paul helps us here:

‘… the fruit of the Spirit is
love, joy, peace, patience,
kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness and self-control.
Against such things there is no law.’
Galatians 5:22-23

Here then is evidence of the Spirit at work.

Yet these are not things that we can bring about through our own striving. 

They are available to us only through wilful submission to the Holy Spirit and his guiding, leading, directing, comforting, equipping … in our lives.

I pray you and I may know these fruits and so be encouraged and confirmed in our faith.

God bless,
