“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23

"There is no law" oh, what a proclamation. The author is not suggesting a state of lawlessness where we get to do whatever we want from a position of selfish desires. But freedom from the law that finds us guilty and keeps us enslaved to our sin and separation from God. Immunity from a law that judges us according to our sinful thoughts, actions, and motives and becomes unto us a judgment unto self.

On the hand, the man who steps, walks, and is led by the Spirit of God finds the freedom from the law he wants. He discovers a new way of life. A life "of the Spirit." A single fruit with exceptional production that all can see. Not one that focused on self, but one focused on God. One with rewards that come from God, used for his purposes through you. And that is the feeling of living a lawless life.

DO THIS: Live lawlessly.

PRAYER: God, may all I do today represent you. Help me to be sensitive to your Spirit and demonstrate your fruit to others.
