The fruit of the Spirit
The Holy Spirit is not an outside force
The Bible does not talk about feelings when speaking of the Spirit. He is not some outside influence or religious experience. He is not some force that completely controls us. He takes residency inside us.
2 Corinthians 6:19-20
He is in us. He lives inside us and through us. He enlightens us. He enlists us (1 Corinthians 12:1-11)
He prepares us. He works through us. He equipts us. He produces fruit through us (Galatians 5:22-26)
Warnings about the Holy Spirit
Have you ever resisted the Spirit of God? (1 Thessalonians 5:19)
Have you ever quenched the Spirit? This means to resist His influence – Like smothering a fire.
Have you ever hardened your heart towards the Spirit? (Ephesians 4:30)
The Spirit should never be pushed away, ignored, or rejected.
