Hello all,

The Christian life is designed by God to be a fruit-bearing life, a life that experiences God’s goodness and then goes on to bear Spirit-empowered transformation from a new heart. Paul talks in Galatians about what our fleshly life produces, sin in all of its unglory. It’s not pretty to hear that, but then he says this in Galatians 5.

Galatians 5:22–23 (ESV) — 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

That fruit when we partner with the Spirit, brings glory to God and is also a blessing to our soul. This is where we work together with the Spirit and produce gospel fruit. This fruit truly is the blessed life in knowing the Lord.

This weekend at Exchange Church:

In Christ,
