The Fruit of the Spirit – Part 3: Peace
We are born at war. At birth, our sinful nature has already declared war on God and His truth. Our heart’s desire is to be separated from Him, and if we persist in this desire until death, He will give us what we want. In Romans 12:8, Paul exhorts, “If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.” This Spirit produces the fruit of peace in us as we yield our will to His leading and our actions to His Word. Only God can create peace in our lives through the work of the Holy Spirit. *And* the peace mentioned in Galatians 5 is the peace of a harmonious relationship with God.
