“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.” - Galatians 5:22-23
When we walk in the Spirit, we can’t help but model the affect the Holy Spirit has on our lives. The Spirit fills us up and guides us. He counsels us and convicts us of the things that are not of God. It’s literally impossible to not model the fruit of the Spirit when we’re walking inline with God’s will for our lives. But while we know what the fruit of the Spirit IS, do we really know what these words mean? After all, the joy of the Lord goes much deeper than “the emotion of great delight or happiness” that the dictionary defines it as. The same it is with peace. The peace that passes all human understanding goes so much deeper than “an absence of fear, anxiety, war, etc”. This week, John and Zach are (finally) back on the podcast to talk through what peace is in terms of a fruit of the Spirit, how it works itself in our lives, and how we can lead our mentees in enjoying a life of peace.
