Galatians Chapter 5.  verses 22-23.

22. But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.

23. Gentleness, self-control, against such there is no law.

Now that is quite a lot to live up to, but here is the character of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are commanded to be in him and through him. Colossians chapter1. verse 20-21-22.. And by him to reconcile all things to himself, by him,  whether things on earth or things in heaven. Having made peace through the blood of his cross .

21. And you who were once alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now he has reconciled.

22. In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and blameless and irreproachable in his sight.

This is what Jesus did for us on that cross and he will draw us to himself. We need to say, i look at the fruits of your holy spirit Lord Jesus and how could I live up to that. Then give the Holy Spirit permission to do whatever it takes to bring us into those fruits. 

Our natural self will put up some resistance, but who can resist pure divine love?. The Holy Spirit is described as a helper. if we cooperate and go along with what he tells us. Then we are well on our way to being full of those fruits. we have the greatest teacher in the universe to teach us and encourage us. Now that should lift us into a mindset that will be in time divine. Oh yes i  like that how about you?.
