“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Galatians 5:22-23,25

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

The fruit of the Spirit is

love, joy,

peace, patience, kindness,

generosity, faithfulness, gentleness,

and self-control.

There is no law against such things.

.

If we live by the Spirit,

let us also be guided by the Spirit.

.

– Galatians 5:22-23,25 (NRSV

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

What we receive

from letting the Holy Spirit work in our life – His fruit –

is in complete contrast with our sinful tendencies.

.

Earlier on in the same chapter from his letter to the Galatians, The latter St. Paul lists many of inclinations and desires

which cause the ruin of our soul:

“sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures,

idolatry, sorcery,

hostility, quarrelling, jealousy,

outbursts of anger, selfish ambition,

dissension, division, envy,

drunkenness, wild parties,

and other sins like these.” (Galatians 5:19-21)

.

Do I abhor the above

and work hard at embracing the fruit

which the Holy Spirit freely gives

to those who call upon Him with faith and humility?

.

Do I prefer decadent behaviour and immoral attitude

over pure and just love, joy,

peace, patience, kindness,

generosity, faithfulness, gentleness,

and self-control?

.

Which do I choose?

.

If I claim to live,

or want to live by the Spirit,

then I should let Him take over

and guide me,

otherwise…

.

.

The choice is entirely mine..

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Come Spirit of God, I have made my choice.

Guide me, Holy Spirit!
