SCRIPTURE TEXT: “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience … goodness, faithfulness … self-control.”— Galatians 5:22-23  

It’s hard to “be good.” When people ask, “How are you?” I often reply, “Fine,” or, “Good”—whether I mean it or not.
But “being good” is much different. Jesus told people to be as holy—or perfect—as our Heavenly Father is (see Matthew 5:48). I don’t come close! Do you?
Help is on the way. Receiving the Father’s gift, the Holy Spirit, promised by Jesus and delivered on Pentecost, is another element to the faith I receive when I am delivered from sin and guilt through the cross. Because of the cross, the Spirit is poured out on God’s people. The Spirit’s specialty is to empower people to take on the character of Jesus Christ—making them holy. The beauty of our redemption is that when we are made right with God through Christ, we’re also launched on a journey to make our lifestyles right. The Spirit lives in the heart of the believer. If we have new life in Christ, we are being made holy. It is all God’s free gift.
The question is, Will I give up my desires to run the show myself, and surrender control to the Holy Spirit?
The Spirit’s fruit defines holy living. The fruit is unmistakable and so desirable: “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self- control.” Why not ask the God who saves us to give us holiness too?

PRAYER: “Father in Heaven, Your gifts through Christ’s cross are immeasurably rich. Thank you for sending your Spirit. I pray to see the Spirit’s fruit in my life.” Amen. 



SCRIPTURE TEXT: “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you.”— Acts 1:8  

The book of Acts features the Holy Spirit as the main player in bringing the church to life: Jesus gave instructions to His followers through the Spirit, saying that the Spirit will be given as a gift and that they will be “baptized with the Holy Spirit.” That happened on Pentecost.
The Holy Spirit is so prominent in the book of Acts that, as scholars have noted, Luke’s record of the spread of the Gospel from Jerusalem to Rome could well be titled “The Acts of the Holy Spirit.”
The sending of the Spirit by the Father and the Son is another breathtaking result and blessing of the risen Jesus (see Luke 24:49). The word for “power” in the original Greek language of our Scripture verse today has come into English in our words “dynamo” and “dynamic.” In other words, the Holy Spirit comes into our lives with the dynamic power of God.
Thinking about the astonishing effects of Good Friday and Easter, we might ask, “How does all this become real to me?” The Spirit is God’s gracious answer. Jesus said, “The Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father—he will testify about me” (John 15:26). So if you know the Lord, it’s because of the Spirit! If you’ve given your heart and life to Jesus, it’s because of the Spirit! If Christians worship and prayer build you up spiritually, if God speaks to you in the Bible, credit the Spirit!

PRAYER: “Come, Holy Spirit, Heavenly Dove, with all Your quickening powers. Kindle a flame of sacred love in my cold heart, and teach me to live like Jesus. Amen.” 



Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”– Matthew 11:29-30 & Matthew 7:24-27• Who is Jesus Christ

Jesus’ proper name derives from the Hebrew “Joshua”, meaning “Yahweh saves” or “salvation is from Yahweh” (Matthew 1:21). Christ is the Greek term for “anointed”, equivalent to the Hebrew Messiah. This anointed Saviour is also Immanuel, “God is with us” (Matthew 1:23; Isaiah 7:14). Paul’s favourite term for Jesus was kurios, “Lord,” and the earliest Christian confession was that “Jesus is Lord,” The sublime introduction of Jesus in the prologue to John’s Gospel presents Him as the logos, the “Word” who created all things (1:3) and who became flesh and dwelt among us (1:4). He is the Life (1:4) and the Light of mankind (1:4); the Glory of God (1:4); the only begotten God who makes the Father known (1:18). The Gospels record Jesus’ own self designation as Son of Man, the title He frequently used to speak of His humiliation, His identification with sinful mankind, His death on behalf of sinners, and His glorious return. While Jesus was the Son of Man in respect to His ministry and passion, He is also Son of God, the uniquely begotten one sent from God Himself (Mark 1:1; John 3:16). The book of Hebrews shows Jesus as God’s great high priest (3:1; 4:14) who both makes sacrifice for His people and who is Himself the sacrifice (10:10-14). Hebrews also presents Jesus as the creator of all things (1:2), the perfect representation of God (1:3), and the apostle of our confession (3:1). The metaphors used of Jesus, particularly in John’s Gospel, speak poignantly to the indispensable need for a person to know Jesus. He is the water of life (John 4:14). The bread of life (6:41), the light (8:12), the door (10:7), the way, the truth and the life (14:6).• Live like Jesus

Jesus, the divine Son of God, set aside the privileges and powers of deity for a time and lived as a man on earth. This means that you, as a reborn child of God, filled with the same Holy Spirit as Jesus was, have the same opportunity to live as He lived on earth. In fact, that is exactly what He intends. In John 17:18 He said to the Father, “Just as You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.” He’s given you the ability and the command to live above sin, to live in fellowship with the Father, to preach the gospel and to make disciples.• What Does it Mean for a Christ-follower to be an Example?

Though Scripture exhorts leaders to be examples (1 Pet. 5:2-3),we should all be examples as Christ-followers regardless of how we serve because we all represent Him (2 Cor. 5:20).  Being an example means reflecting Jesus to those around you in a way that causes them to take notice, not of you, but of Christ in you.  As an example, you will:• Exemplify Christ in all you say and do.• Put out sin and impurities from your life so people see Christ.• Affect others with the love of Christ.• Model Christ-like character & conduct.• Position yourself under Christ so He is the Head.• Line up with Christ in not only what you do but how you do it.• Enhance people’s lives because of Christ in you.

God works first through the ordinary experiences of daily life to form the character of Christ in us. Through these experiences we come to know on the deepest levels that Jesus is with us always, that he never leaves us nor forsakes us, and that we can cast all our care upon him. In addition, we learn that ordinary life is sacramental, and that divine guidance is given primarily in these common junctures of life.• Being an Example of Christ means:a. Following His teachings – believing that God is our Father and trusting Him to care for us. – John 15:4-7b. Learning to overcome the world and the devil.c. Christ’s example of service to others. Serving others who are also children of God our Father. Jesus said of Himself, “The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:28). And that’s exactly what He did—serve others and give His life for them—setting an example for us to follow.• Being an Example of Christ means adopting His attitudes: – Philemon 2:1-4

a. Attitude of Humility. That the Father knows what is Best for the us and therefore we should humbly surrender ourselves to His direction. Christ was totally yielded to the will of His Father. He completely humbled Himself and remained faithful in doing His Father’s will all the way to His death: “In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to His own advantage; rather, He made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 

b. That knowing who our Father is we should be willing to battle against evil and temptation.

c. Christ’s amazing example of godly love. We should love another especially the family of God or the people of God’s household. He not only loved His friends, but also His enemies: “But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous” (Matthew 5:44-45). His love is so great that He died for friend and foe alike. May we follow that example!

d. Modelling Christ in our Work. Christians in the workplace should be motivated by our desire to glorify God and to inspire others to desire to know him. Those who don’t know Christ may be inspired to seek Him and influenced to reconsider Christianity. Jesus also took on “the very nature of a servant.”

e. As children of God, we are called to live in INTEGRITY. Jesus is the perfect example of a man of integrity. After He was baptized, He went into the wilderness to fast for forty days and nights, during which time Satan came to Him at His weakest to try to break His integrity and corrupt Him. Jesus was wholly man and wholly God at the same time, and He tempted in every way we are, yet he never sinned. He is the only one who was ever without blemish, perfect, completely truthful, and always showing a pattern of good works. 

f. Truthfulness. The Bible also describes integrity as the truth. What is the truth? Jesus is the only real truth and the only way to attain eternal life. Nobody comes to the Father unless he goes through Jesus who is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6). Many times, Jesus prefaced His words by saying, “Truly, I say to you,” which, in essence, means “I tell you the truth.” Jesus never lied, and His actions defined integrity.

gBoldness. Jesus and his apostles were extremely bold and gave either their jobs or money away to do God’s ministry. Trust in God the Father as He did.  He stood firm in God alone.  For Him God the Father alone was the rock on which His soul could stand. Christian courage is the willingness to say and do the right thing regardless of the earthly cost, because God promises to help you and save you on account of Christ. 

h. Empathy. Jesus was always sensitive to the plight of others. Jesus is our best example of empathy. Matthew tells us how Jesus, “when he saw the crowds, . . . had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd” (Matthew 9:36). On another occasion, Jesus observed a widow about to bury her only son. Sensing her pain (the NLT says that Jesus’ “heart overflowed with compassion”, He approached the funeral procession and resurrected the young man (Luke 7:11-16). 

i. EvangelismOur Lord Jesus came to seek and to save those who are lost and modelling Him in our generation must give a passion for evangelism and discipleship. We must not only share our faith but live it so that all those who come into contact with us will feel attracted to the Lord Jesus and give their lives to Him as His followers. If ever there was a time to share Christ Jesus and demonstrate His power to transform lives it is now. As His ambassadors that is what we should be doing as effortlessly as the way we breath everyday remembering that the Holy Spirit lives in us to enable us so to do.

Stay blessed!

SCRIPTURE TEXT: “When He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth.”—John 16:13 

We have to admit that the truth is hard to handle without help. But Jesus helps by providing a helper, the Spirit of truth.
Jesus was preparing to leave his disciples and return to his Father, and his disciples were afraid. They imagined themselves spending much time with Jesus, learning about his kingdom and finding their places in it. The truth they could not handle was that Jesus had to leave them. Their lives had to transition from the God they could see to the God who would be in them.
But Jesus gave them truth they could handle. The Spirit of God would remind them of the truth of Jesus as the only Savior whom they—and we—will ever need. The Spirit takes us by the hand and helps us to live into the words and actions of the Father and the Son. We can handle that truth!
Has the Spirit been speaking to you this week? Are you taking his counsel to heart? Let the Spirit lead you and guide you every step of the way!
PRAYER: “Holy Spirit, I need your guidance to take in the truth of God’s Word. Help me as I receive the truth of Jesus as the very words of life.” Amen.



Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm.  Let nothing move you.  Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labour in the Lord is not in vain.” 1 Corinthians 15:58 (NIV)

Beloved in the Lord, when Paul wrote this admonition to the Christians in Corinth, he was encouraging them to consider what a glorious heritage they had as believers.  Their Lord, Jesus Christ had risen from the dead.  It was a fact, undisputed – totally confirmed even by his enemies.  Because of theresurrection, the Christian had hope – hope that they would not be overcome by Satan through death.  On the contrary their own reservation and re-union with the Lord Jesus Christ was assured.  For that reason, they were to be actively involved and engaged in the work of the Lord.

They were not to allow the world to draw them back through – false teachings and doctrines:  persecution compromise to the worldly way of life, competition for the acclaim the world so readily gives fear of rejection, ostracization, pressure from peers to conform.

The admonition was timely and relevant because those who turned to Christ in those days faced real pressures.  But Paul reminded them that their decision to give their lives to Christ was the right one – it had been initiated and confirmed by God Himself through Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit.

Beloved, this exhortation is very timely and relevant to us also.  Ours may not be such a hostile environment.  In fact, it is quite fashionable to be a Christian these days – 71% of the nation professes Christianity.  But please don’t let us get carried away.  We too live in very dangerous times – subtly dangerous.  

The signs of the dangers may not always be clear, especially to those who take everything for granted.  But believe me, the times we live in are extremely dangerous.• We are bombarded daily with false teachings and false doctrines on radio, television and other media;• We are drawn and even pushed into compromise because of prevailing social norms and cultural practices;• We face persecution if we decide to stand for and do what is right.  We get punished, banished and sometimes lose our promotion in the workplace;• We are sometimes rejected by family and friends because we want to follow Christ Jesus more closely and live for Him;• We are accosted by fear because we do not know how we can face all these pressures and survive.

This however is the time to strongly trust in our Lord Jesus Christ by whose resurrection the Lord God our Father has categorically confirmed that Jesus is indeed Lord and Saviour.COVID-19 has made it palpably clear that all we hold dear can be wiped out in an instant.

This is the time to know that we are on the Lord’s side, we are standing on the Solid Rock – Jesus Christ Himself.  This is the time to show boldly by our lives that we need no argument; we need no plea; it is enough that Jesus died and that He died for you and for me.  As Christians, we too are called into various ministries; we are not to be spectators, NO!!  We are to be busy for the Lord – not busybodies, gossiping, bringing conflict, etc.  No.  We are to be fully engaged for the Lord as He, by His Holy Spirit enables us.  As we read in the Bible – we are called to be co-workers in the Kingdom; disciples of believers; engaged in evangelism; serve in the local church as deacons, deaconesses and other active workers; we are given the gifts of prophecy; we are to operate in all the spiritual gifts that the Lord in His wisdom has fully given us by His Holy Spirit.

How then do we as Paul admonishes us, stand firm and let nothing move us?  I would like us to see ourselves in the light of Eph. 6:10-18. Paul speaks to us to be strong in the power of the Lord, to always wear our spiritual armour and pray!!! He uses the word STAND four times between verse 13 – 14a. • Take our stand against the devil’s schemes;• Stand our ground when the evil day comes;• Stand after we’ve done everything;• Stand firm with our full armour.

What I learn is that it is all about our total dependence in the one who has called us into His Kingdom – Jesus Christ.  We stand and remain immovable in Him and in His strength even in these very uncertain, disruptive and scary times of the COVID-19 pandemic.

To Ponder:

Oh, it is hard to work for GOD, To rise and take His part,Upon this battlefield of earthAnd not sometimes lose heart! Workman of GOD! O lose not heart, But learn what GOD is like, And in the darkest battlefield thou shalt know where to strike. – Frederick William Faber

Who is on The Lord’s Side – MHB 820

1. Who is on the Lord’s side? Who will serve the King?
Who will be His helpers, other lives to bring?
Who will leave the world’s side? Who will face the foe?
Who is on the Lord’s side? Who for Him will go?
By Thy call of mercy, by Thy grace divine,
We are on the Lord’s side—Savior, we are Thine!

4. Chosen to be soldiers, in an alien land,
Chosen, called, and faithful, for our Captain’s band;
In the service royal, let us not grow cold,
Let us be right loyal, noble, true and bold.
Master, wilt Thou keep us, by Thy grace divine,
Always on the Lord’s side—Savior, always Thine!

(Frances RidleyHavergal, 1836 – 1879)

SCRIPTURE TEXT: “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. ” – John 3:5 

God’s grace doesn’t just “happen” to come to us. It comes to us from God the Father through the obedience, death, and ­resurrection of Jesus Christ. And the saving work of Jesus comes to us through the Holy Spirit.
The Bible teaches that we all share the stain of Adam’s sin. From the moment we are conceived in our mother’s womb, we are in rebellion against God. Our rebellion, though rooted and connected to Adam’s first sin, includes our own inescapable inclination to sin. Our hearts are hardened against God: we have plugs in our ears and blinders over our eyes. On our own, we are hopelessly lost.
But the Holy Spirit comes to us and changes our hearts.
The Holy Spirit’s work in our hearts is sometimes overlooked or downplayed. Through the sometimes dramatic though often mundane events of our lives, the Spirit woos us, draws us to him, and moves us toward the love of our Father in heaven. And when—and only when—the Holy Spirit has softened our hearts, unstopping our ears and removing the blinders from our eyes, do we turn to God.
We are saved by grace alone through the power and work of the Holy Spirit. Be aware of the Spirit working in your life today, filling you with grace and flowing to those around you.

PRAYER: “Creator Spirit, you laid the world’s foundations, and you set us free to live in God’s love and mercy. Make us your sacred temples to live and serve and glorify our Father”. Amen.



SCRIPTURE TEXT: “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” – Acts 1:8 

The gifts of the Holy Spirit are nowhere more relevant to our lives than in the area of witness.  The Holy Spirit not only gives us the power to speak, but through His gifts of wisdom and discernment He shows us when and how to speak in any particular situation.  We all live under the shadow of the great commission to go and make disciples of all nations, but we are not left to ourselves in this task.  Jesus promised His first disciples that He would always be with them and He is always with us, giving us power and guidance through the Spirit whom He has sent, to enable us every day in our witness for Him.
The Holy Spirit leads men and women into areas of effective witness.  He is always taking the initiative in opening the right doors where He has prepared the ground for the reception of the gospel – e.g. Acts 8:26-39.  Life takes on a new dimension altogether when we are prepared every day to follow the leading of the Spirit on every occasion.  The Holy Spirit will prepare the hearts and lives of those with whom we come into contact, so that they can receive the witness we give them to the power of Jesus.
Our whole life is an opportunity and if we will open ourselves to the possibilities of the Holy Spirit, we will be surprised at how many opportunities we will be given to share what our faith in Jesus means to us.  This does not mean that we will always need to be straining to barge into people’s lives: it means that we need to follow the Lord as He opens the door by His Spirit.
Witness means many things.  At one time it will mean making a clear statement about what we believe and why we believe it; on other occasions it will mean that we are the outlet for God in that situation, demonstrating His love and power through our attitudes and concern for other people.  In any event, it is not a witness to ourselves, but to the loving power of the Lord Jesus Christ 

PRAYER: Pray and ask the Holy Spirit to lead you in every situation.



SCRIPTURE TEXT: “Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us,  set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come..” – 2 Corinthians 1: 21-22

The Holy Spirit is perfectly equal with God the Father and Jesus the Son and this is demonstrated in certain specific events in the New Testament:

At Christ’s baptism the Holy Spirit appeared like a dove and settled on Him while God’s voice was heard expressing His pleasure at the Son – Matthew 3:16-17

In the temptation of Christ – the Bible tells us that Jesus was led by the Holy Spirit into the desert to be tempted and throughout the temptations Jesus overcame Satan with the Word of God – Matt. 4:1-7 

While Jesus was in the upper room with His disciples just before His arrest and crucifixion, He talked about asking the Father to send them another Counselor, the Holy Spirit – John 14:16 and 26.

Paul declares in Eph. 2:18 that through Christ we, all Jews and Gentiles, have access to the Father through the same Holy Spirit. The doxology which we so often share also demonstrates the oneness of the Triune Godhead for we sayThe Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowships of the Holy Spirit, be with us all, now and forever.  Amen

Peter also tells us in I Peter 1:2 that we have been chosen by God, Father, made holy by the Spirit and enabled to obey Christ who has cleansed us by His blood.  He also says in I Pet. 4:14 that we are blessed if we are insulted for being Christian because it means that the Holy Spirit and the glory of God rests upon us.  I pray that when we go through trials and sufferings because of our faith in Jesus Christ we will stand firm knowing that it is because of the presence of the glory of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that leads to such insults and ridicule.

In Acts 2:3 Peter also declares the perfect equality of the Holy Spirit to God the Father and God the Son in His powerful evangelistic message on the day of Pentecost.
It is awesome to know that God Himself, the Almighty, All-wise – Everywhere present God lives in you and me by His Spirit and that it is the same Holy Spirit who indwelt Jesus and enabled Him to do so much good, exhibiting God’s love and demonstrating God’s compassion through healing, casting out of demons and standing courageously before His enemies. It is this same Holy Spirit who indwells us.  Such knowledge should totally liberate us from all our fears, prejudices, pride and sin and enable us to live lives transformed by God’s power to do good works and spread righteousness all around us.  There is victory in Christ Jesus who lives in us by His spirit.

PRAYER: “Dear Lord when I go through trials and sufferings because of my faith in Christ, help me stand firm knowing that You are with me” Amen. 



SCRIPTURE TEXT: “And I will give you a new heart with a right desire, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony heart of sin and give you a new, obedient heart.  And I will put my Spirit in you so you will obey my laws and do whatever I command.” – Ezekiel. 36:26-27

The Holy Spirit, the third Person in the Godhead, is very central to our coming to faith in Jesus Christ. He is also very central to sustaining our faith. It is therefore essential that Christians recognize the importance of the Holy Spirit in God’s redemptive purpose. The Holy Spirit is the One who gives us power to live our new life in Christ. He also gives us power to share the gospel of God’s salvation of the world through Jesus Christ.  His work is crucial to the believer.
Yet though the Holy Spirit is so important, most believers do not have the faintest idea about who the Holy Spirit really is and what He does in the lives of us who believe. God’s plan for believers is that we be transformed in character to become like Jesus Christ as we read in Rom. 8:29: For God knew His people in advance, and He chose them to become like His Son.  So that His Son would become the First Born with many brothers and sisters. This is reiterated in 2 Cor. 3:18b – And as the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more and more like Him and reflect His glory even more.
God knows that by ourselves we cannot bring any changes in our disposition – that is, the intrinsic nature of ours that seeks to have its own way. That is why God has made His Spirit available to guide us into all truth and righteousness.
The Holy Spirit was sent by the Father to bring believers into the intimate presence and fellowship of Jesus Christ as we read in John 14: 15-18;26. We should therefore treat Him as a person and regard Him as the infinite living God within our hearts, worthy of our worship, love and surrender.

PRAYER: “Dear Holy Spirit I surrender my all to You, come and live in my heart and help me live in Christ.” Amen. 



SCRIPTURE TEXT: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law”– Galatians 5:22-23

Contrasted to the acts of the sinful nature is a single-minded lifestyle called “the fruit of the Spirit.”  This is produced in God’s children as they allow the Spirit to so direct and influence their lives that they destroy sin’s power, especially the acts of the sinful nature, and walk in fellowship with God – Rom. 8:5-14; 2 Cor. 6:6; Eph. 4:2-3; 5:9; Col. 3:12-15; 2 Pet. 1:4-9.  The fruit of the Spirit includes:

“Love” – a caring for and seeking the highest good of another person without  motive of personal gain.

“Joy” – the feeling of gladness based on the love, grace, blessings, promises and nearness of God that belong to those who believe in Christ – Ps. 119:16; 2 Cor. 6:10; 12:9; 1 Pet. 1:8; Phil. 1:14.
“Peace” – the rest of heart and mind based on the knowledge that all is well between the believer and his or her heavenly Father, resulting in freedom from the turmoil of anxiety – Rom. 15:33; Phil. 4:7; 1 Thess. 5:23; Heb. 13:20.
“Patience”– endurance, long suffering; being slow to anger or despair –Eph. 4:2; 2 Tim. 3:10; Heb. 13:20.
“Kindness” – not wanting to hurt anyone or cause them pain – Eph. 4:32; Col. 3:12; 1Pet. 2:3.
“Goodness” – zeal for truth and righteousness and a hatred of evil; it can be expressed in acts of kindness – Luke 7:37-50, or in rebuking and correcting evil – Mt. 21:12-13.
“Faithfulness” – firm and unswerving loyalty to a person to whom one is united by promise, commitment, trust and honesty – Mt. 23:23; Rom. 3:3; 1 Tim. 6:12; 2 Tim. 2:2; 4:7; Titus 2:10.
“Gentleness” – restraint coupled with strength and courage; it describes a person who can be angry when anger is needed and humbly submissive when submission is needed – 2 Tim. 2:25; 1 Pet. 3:15; for gentleness in Jesus, compare Mt. 11:29 with Mt. 23 with Mk. 3:5; in Paul, compare 2 Cor.10:1 with 10:4-6 and Gal. 19, in Moses compare Num. 12:3 with Ex. 32:19-20.
“Self-control” – mastering one’s desire and passions, including faithfulness to one’s marriage vows; also purity – 1 Cor. 7:9; 9:25; Tit. 1:8; 2:5. 
Paul’s final comment about the fruit of the Spirit indicates that there are no restrictions to the lifestyle indicated here.  Christians can – in fact, must – practice these virtues over and over again; they will never discover a law prohibiting them from living according to these principles.
