Becoming: 9 Heart Qualities that Change Everything (part 2), Pastor David Welch

October 16, 2022



What matters most?

Answer: Becoming matters most of all.


22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 24 Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.
Galatians 5:22–25 (NASB 1995)

The idea:

What matters most is that love completely transforms who you are.

This only happens when you are loved so completely that it changes you.



How Love Changes You.

What you think love is must change

Galatians 5:22
