Abide in Me, and I will abide in you. A branch cannot bear fruit if it is disconnected from the vine, and neither will you if you are not connected to Me.
But the fruit of the [Holy] Spirit [the work which His presence within accomplishes] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness, Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control
If we lack any fruits of the Holy Spirit, we should seriously examine. Because we are not fully connected to God.
Fruit of the Holy Spirit can only be able to be accomplished by the Spirit, that’s why it’s called the fruit of the Holy Spirit.
Galatians states that the fruit of the Holy Spirit is the work which His presence within accomplishes.
His presence increases as you are fully connected to Him, which means that you are fully committed and fully determined to be all in.
Pastor Kim preached about doves and pigeons. If you act fleshly, you are basically kicking out the presence of God. Then who will replace it? You know who already. Then you will become more fleshly.
The Holy Spirit is a humble Spirit. He won’t dwell within the person who won’t humble themselves.
But when you follow your own wrong inclinations, your lives will produce these evil results: impure thoughts, eagerness for lustful pleasure, idolatry, spiritism (that is, encouraging the activity of demons), hatred and fighting, jealousy and anger, constant effort to get the best for yourself, complaints and criticisms, the feeling that everyone else is wrong except those in your own little group-and there will be wrong doctrine, envy, murder, drunkenness, wild parties, and all that sort of thing. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
To whom are you connected to?
Pastor Yoojin Kim
