God Changes Us: Once Works, Now Fruit

Galatians 5:16-26

It’s possible to coerce or even force someone to do something, but for an action to be meaningful and fulfilling, it must be done because the person wanted to. This is the key difference between behavior modification and heart change, changing our actions versus changing our motivations underneath our actions. In the letter to the Galatians, especially concerning the fruit of the Spirit in chapter 5, Paul taught on grace, works, and personal transformation in the light of the gospel. What we do certainly matters, but why we do what we do matters even more.
