We have two opposing forces within us: our sin nature and our new nature. The Apostle Paul says in Galatians, the Spirit can overcome the flesh. It all depends on what we plant in the garden of our lives. If we plant Gods seed into our life then the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. We must plant seeds to please the Spirit to reap eternal life.
