With The Holy Spirit In Control, We Automatically Bear The Fruit Of The Spirit, And We Automatically Obey The Laws Of God, Which Will Then Be Written In Our Heart And Mind

FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT

In Galatians, chapter five, Paul lists seventeen things as "works of the flesh" and nine things as "fruit of The Spirit. He says that flesh and Spirit are in conflict. And he urges us to live by The Spirit and not by the flesh.

       GALATIANS 5:13-26 (KJV)
       
        13
               For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use
               not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love
               serve one another.
        14
               For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this;
               Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
        15
               But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye
               be not consumed one of another.
        16
               This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not
               fulfil the lust of the flesh.
        17
               For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit
               against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the
               other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
        18
               But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
        19
               Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these;
               Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
        20
               Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath,
               strife, seditions, heresies,
        21
               Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like:
               of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in
               time past, that they which do such things shall not
               inherit the kingdom of God.
        22
               But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
               longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
        23
               Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
        24
               And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with
               the affections and lusts.
        25
               If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
        26
               Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one
               another, envying one another.

LAWS OF GOD

With the Holy Spirit in control, God's laws are written in our heart and mind, and we obey.

           "And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in
            my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them."
            (Ezekiel 36:27 KJV)

           "This is the covenant that I will make with them after
            those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into
            their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;"
            (Hebrews 10:16 KJV)
           " . . . for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you." (John
            14:17 KJV)
           "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit
            Of God dwelleth in you?" (1 Corinthians 3:16 KJV)

           "For this is the covenant that I will make with the
            house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I
            will put my laws into their mind, and write them in
            their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they
            shall be to me a people:" (Hebrews 8:10)

           "But this shall be the covenant that I will make with
            the house of Israel; After those days, saith the
            LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and
            write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and
            they shall be my people." (Jeremiah 31:33 KJV)

           "At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and
            ye in me, and I in you." (John 14:20 KJV)
