Looking to the example of Jesus, reading and obeying the things He has to say…
will cause growth of the fruit of the Spirit, and desiring that when we pray.

Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, and goodness are truly the Spirit’s fruit–
and faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control can flourish after having taken root.

Regular times in the Word of God, soaking up the Lord’s wisdom there–
will help us to nurture that “against which there is no law” that we’re to reflect and share.

P. A. Oltrogge

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.” Galatians 5:22-25
