Replacement parts

But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,  gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things! Gal. 5:22-23

It’s good to repent and to stop doing the things that hurt other people, ourselves, and Jesus but what about that thing  inside us that make us still want to do those things? The fruit of the Spirit are replacement parts for hate, pride, misery, anger, greed, unfaithfulness, ungraciousness, and self-indulgence. Real spiritual change happens when we allow God to replace our impulses with His own.

Lord, change my heart.
