Work a little harder, please

“Paul brackets the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5 with this emphasis and strategy: “I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh” (Gal. 5:16). “If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit” (Gal. 5:25). Though we are called to purpose and to do, we are completely dependent on the Spirit to act and to achieve anything genuine and lasting.”— Vine Ripened Life

Amen! It is entirely as we depend on the Holy Spirit that anything good can happen.
