"It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing." ~ John 6:63 (NASB)
People are more prosperous now than at any time in history. STill, there is a hole in their souls. Many have tased the life I offer but have been afraid to drink of it. True life does not come from anything this world offers, and it does not come from other people. True life comes only from the Holy Spirit. His fruit of selfless, unconditional love brings true life to all who are born of Him. His fruit of joy overcomes any sorrow. His fruit of peace brings calm in the midst of trials. In My followers His fruit creates an endless patience the world can't explain. His fruit produces self-control and an active outreach of kindness, goodness, and gentleness, even toward people who don't deserve it. Most important, His fruit produces true faithfulness to the Father and to Me. Child, as My follower you have unlimited access to the Holy Spirit and His fruit. Abide in My words, and let Him perform His minitry in your life.
"If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever - the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you." ~ John 14:15-17 (NKJV)
