Daily Devotion

We cannot be good without Christ, for our natural inclination, which lives in the flesh, is diametrically opposed to everything that is Christ like. We must therefore make a conscious effort to live according to the spirit, for only through Christ can we acquire the fruits of the spirit.

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit."
Galatians 5:22-25 (NIV)
