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," what a proclamation.
The writer is not proposing a state of lawlessness where you get to do whatever you want from a position of self-interest. But rather freedom from a law that binds you to shame and keeps you shackled to sin and thus separated from the Spirit. But brother, there's freedom for the man who keeps in step, walks, and is led by the Spirit of God. It's a new way of life—unshackled and productive. Fruit with exceptional byproducts readily seen. Fruit focused on God, not self. One with production that comes from God, for His purposes, for His glory, yet working through you. And that is the lawless and fruitful 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.
