The Gospel & The Fruit, Part 3
John Calvin: In his usual way, Paul draws an exhortation out of his doctrine. The death of the flesh is the life of the Spirit. If the Spirit of God lives in us, let him govern our actions. As the soul does not remain idle in the body, but gives motion and rigour to every member and part, so the Spirit of God cannot dwell in us without manifesting himself by the outward effects.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.
