Speaker: Lukus Counterman - The first and great evidence of our walking by the Spirit or being filled with the Spirit is not some private mystical experience of our own, but our practical relationships of love with other people. Since the first fruit of the Spirit is love, this is only logical. But it is easy to talk about “love” in an abstract and general way; it is much harder to get down to concrete, particular situations in which we actually demonstrate our love for one another. Paul takes time in Galatians 5:25-6:5 to see the practical out-workings of love for those who are walking by the Spirit. May the Lord help us to love not in word or tongue, but in deed and truth by the power of his Spirit.
