Con: Paul compared the life of a Christian to a race. The longer we run, the harder it is. We grow tired & careless, but Jesus will help each of us win our race.
Abby: What kind of shoes do I need to buy for this race?
The race Paul talks about represents our daily battle against sin.
Nim: Professor Amos, how do I get the Fruits of the Spirit?
Amos: By accepting Christ, they are already growing inside you. It takes time, prayer and faith. But God will give them to you.
Nim: Couldn't I just buy them in a convenient juice box?
Be patient, it takes time for the Fruits of the Holy Spirit to grow within you.
