Discussion for Galatians 5

  • A disciple
    How do we know its an Apple Tree, or an Orange Tree? Because of its fruit! How does God know that we are saved and really in the Good Tree? By the fruit! Not every one who says, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of God, but he that does the will of the Father. If we love Jesus we will necessarily also DO what He says. If we have His Spirit and grace really working in us, then we will reflect it!
  • A disciple
    "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law." A law is a rule or set of rules for good behavior which is considered right and important; a law is a natural process in which a particular event or thing always leads to a particular result. We do those things that ESTABLISH the rules of good behavior.
