Metamorphosis. Inner change. Radical transformation. Romans 12:2 says, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
As children of a Loving Father, we are to reflect Him to those around us. We can only do that as we are yielded to the Holy Spirit. Let’s review the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22-23. No self-effort can produce fruit that glorifies the Lord.
I want to view the fruit as though we are watching our actions and attitudes in a mirror. What evidence is there in your life of: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control?
What is your response when your will is crossed, a goal is blocked, your expectations are broken, or a myriad of other obstacles suddenly appear? Our fleshly reaction reveals who we are yielded to in the moment.
