It is the Divine Grace of God that flows uninterrupted in the Believer’s life that changes us from glory to glory into the image of God by faith in the Cross of Christ alone. This is the Fruit of the Spirit that brings glory to God. We can’t manifest this ourselves but it is a spiritual work done by the Holy Spirit when we look unto Jesus Christ and Him crucified. The Holy Spirit circumcises our hearts and removes those things which are not pleasing to God.
Too many of us unknowingly try to perform the ministry of the Holy Spirit by doing these things ourselves. When we stop applying vain philosophies in a sincere effort to gain these spiritual victories and instead apply faith the size of a mustard seed into Jesus Christ as the Source and His Cross as the means by which we receive the power of the Holy Spirit to break the chains of sin, we will see victory as the Holy Spirit does what He is commissioned to do.
Our faith is placed in the Jesus Christ, Who HE is and what HE has done and the Holy Spirit will go to work making those crooked paths straight.
Look unto Jesus. Those who believe do not follow the signs and wonders but signs and wonders will follow us.
“17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the Glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.” 2 Corinthians 3:17-18
