Every moment of the day, each decision you make, every choice and every thought is a chance to produce fragrant fruit.

In Paul’s letter to the Galatians he passionately gives them counsel on how to live freely and solely motivated by God’s Spirit. We often need these types of firm reminders because we are constantly in a struggle, a tug-of-war with The Holy Spirit and our sinful nature.

Paul says, look just make it a habit to walk and live in the Holy Spirit. Let it control and guide you in everything you say and do. If you do that, then you are guaranteed to produce fragrant fruit.

Live in me. Make your home in me just as I do in you. In the same way that a branch can’t bear fruit by itself but only by being joined to the vine, you can’t bear fruit unless you are joined with me. John 15: 5

He then warns us of the self-interest root in all of us that is always antagonizing the Holy Spirit, just as the Holy Spirit is always in conflict with our selfish, sinful, rancid fruit nature.

In fruit farming, careful attention is given to pollination, fertilization, pruning and pest control.
