Through me

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Gal 2:20 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control… Gal 5:22-23

If I live out the truth of Galatians 2:20 then the fruit of the Spirit will be manifested in my life. Lord, I want that to be true.

Jesus, love others – the lovely and the unlovely – through me.
Jesus, exude joy through me.
Jesus, spread peace through me.
Jesus, be kind through me.
Jesus, model faithfulness through me.
Jesus, be gentle through me.
Jesus, be self-controlled through me.

Lord, I must decrease and You must increase; live through me.

Blessings, Diane
