What happens when we live God’s way?

What happens when we live God’s way?

Galatians 5:22-24.   “But what happens when we live God’s way?  He

brings gifts into our lives, much the same way  that fruit appears in an

orchard–things like affection for others,exuberance about life, serenity.  

We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in

the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and

people.  We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to

force our way in life, able to marshal and direct our energies wisely.  

Legalism is helpless in bringing this about; it only gets in the way.

 Among those who belong to Christ, everything  connected with getting

our own way and mindlessly responding to what everyone else calls

necessities is killed off for good–crucified.”
