From Freedom to Fruit

It’s for freedom Christ sets us free. Don’t go back into slavery.

Our freedom is from God above; our guide for living in love. 

There’s only one law, nothing else, love neighbors as you love yourselves. 

Competing to come out as first, leads to results that are worst. 

—–

By Spirit live, not by your gut, (which leads on to you can’t know what).

Your body’s good, it can do much. Some things can put you out of touch.

Focus on what you’d like to see (that lasts throughout eternity).

Banish negativity. Aim for a life that is free. 

—–

Spirit leads to both joy and to peace, and loving generously. 

Patience, kindness, self-control (these things can make you whole)

Gentleness and faithfulness, keep you out of many a mess.

No law is against the things that living by Spirit brings.
