To walk by the Spirit,
You will not gratify;
Of immoral merit,
The lusts that satisfy.
For fleshy desires,
Are against the Spirit;
That evil acquires,
An ungodly merit.
If led by the Spirit,
Then not under the Law;
Which is to your credit,
Be without a flaw.
Fleshy works manifest,
Fornication in life;
Of sexual conquest,
Anger which causes strife.
Jealousy or envy,
Idolatry or hatred;
Witchcraft or sorcery,
Evil thoughts in your head.
Things like these I warn you,
Told to you in the past;
Wickedness to construe,
Feels a fiery blast.
The fruit of the Spirit,
Is love, joy, and peace;
That you will inherit,
A life that will not cease.
Patience and faithfulness,
Kindness and self-control;
Goodness and gentleness,
That satisfies the soul.
Those belonging to Christ,
The flesh is crucified;
Passions not be enticed,
Your past is rectified.
By the Spirit to live,
No longer by a lust;
Salvation as to give,
If having faith and trust.
Let us then keep in step,
With the Spirit to walk;
His glory gives us pep,
Through the prayers that we talk.
Become not conceited,
Provoking each other;
Rather all be treated,
Like sister and brother.
