The only way we will be able to produce the Fruit of the Holy Spirit is to answer the Vine’s Divine Call and then yield to the Husbandman’s Divine Care.
The ultimate goal of every believer is NOT to make it into Heaven. The ultimate goal of God’s salvation plan is to have every single one of His sons and daughters achieve Christlikeness. The only way to achieve this goal is to work out everything God has worked into each believer—to work God’s Perfect Will out of each believer. God’s Perfect Will in the believer is His Holy Spirit, who is every believer’s Source of power, authority, gifts, practical sanctification, and so forth.
Before we can minister effectively to others (Christians and unbelievers), we first must be able to demonstrate the moral fiber that is in agreement with Jesus the Christ’s characteristics!
Let us be born of the God’s Spirit in the true sense that Christ intended, which is for us to become new creations in whom His Holy Spirit not only dwells but also infills with God’s desires and His anointings (divine empowerments) like spiritual gifts, holiness, righteousness, power, and authority.
