“…the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is love [unselfish concern for others], joy, [inner] peace, patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting], kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law.” (Galatians 5: 22-23, Amplified Bible)
When we act as the result of God’s presence in us, we stand on a firm foundation. The conscious awareness of God, good, dwelling with us and in us, leads us to the most honest and fruitful experience. We are aligned with God’s purpose and express His qualities naturally and effectively.
Knowing and accepting God’s infinitude, we can’t help but be loving and unselfish. For we understand that Love is boundless, powerful, and the most pleasing to receive as well as to share. This inner knowing of Love, impels us toward good works, not merely because it is humanly nice, but because this compassion and kindness, gentleness and graciousness, is the way we truly want to be. It feels genuine because it comes from the heart, from God’s presence with us, not the world’s expectations.
And so, we stand on the invincible law of Life. This assures us in each moment that in being about God’s business, we are protected as well as productive. We feel peaceful and patient, and this gives us that freedom and incentive to do good works, without fear and with God’s own faithful strengthening Love behind us.
