Let's Make It Fit

Are we trying to make the essence and structure of religion to fit with what it means to be a new creation in Christ?
Isn’t it His life in us as us, the only thing that is able to bring any definition to our lives individually and collectively?
The kicker is, that with an old world mind set, we can not simply abide, allowing Him to bring forth, express through us a living expression of His personality, aka, the fruit of the spirit!
The structure (essence) of His love for us is that which will produce the fruit, but perhaps not fruit that lines up with an old world mind set.

Rich, I love how you refer to the fruit of the Spirit as being the personality of Jesus. Of course, it makes complete sense, I have just never heard it so simply put. Thanks.

Thanks Janna/Paul, yes it does make perfect sense the foolishness of His wisdom being spelled out through us uniquely.
