Let The Holy Spirit Be Your Boss

Who is your boss? To answer that question you might immediately think of your boss at work. Are, if you are self-employed you might smile and say, "I am my own boss!"
If you are a Christian, you have a boss and He is the Holy Spirit. In Romans 8:9, the apostle Paul said, "But you are not controlled by your sinful nature. You are controlled by the Spirit if you have the Spirit of God living in you."
Think about that verse…"you are controlled by the Spirit if you the Spirit in you." If you have accepted Christ as your Savior, you have the Spirit within you. But, you must allow the Spirit to control you. And if the Spirit controls you, your life will produce the fruit of the Spirit.
And, what is the fruit of the spirit? In Galatians 5:22-23 Paul said, "the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness…So if the Holy Spirit is your boss, your life will produce the fruit of the spirit.
So, is your life marked by love? Joy? Peace? Patience? Kindness? If you are like me you will say, "some times." My old flesh jumps up and controls me at times. Today, lets determine to allow the Holy Spirit to control us.
