The Kitchen Table Galatians Day 28
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Galatians 5:22-24
Love doesn’t need law, it exceeds it. Love creates life in what it wants and how it walks. Love is lethal to the flesh. The way to overcome the flesh is not to make more laws but to live in more love. When we live in love, we starve the flesh. That’s why the secret to this Christian life is to fall in love with God. The flesh won’t live, if the flesh isn’t fed. We feed the flesh by placing our attention on it and its’ demands. Fall in love with Jesus and let His Spirit produce love in you and through you. And learn to live lavishly in His love; there is no law restricting love. Live in His love and you’ll walk in His Spirit. Live in love with Him and He will give you freedom from you flesh. Love creates life, live in love.
