Wherefore take unto you THE WHOLE ARMOUR OF GOD, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, TO STAND. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with Truth, and having on the Breastplate Of Righteousness ; And your feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel Of Peace; Above all, taking the Shield Of Faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench ALL the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the Helmet Of Salvation, and the Sword Of The Spirit, which is the Word Of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; Ephesians 6:13-18. But the Fruit of the Spirit is Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith, Meekness, Temperance: against such there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal For to one is given by the Spirit the Word Of Wisdom; to another the Word Of Knowledge, Faith,  Gifts Of Healing, Working Of Miracles, Prophecy,  Discerning Of Spirits; Divers Kinds Of Tongues, and, Interpretation Of Tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as He will. 1 Corinthians 12:7-11. Yes, we are to strive for all these things to be a Part of our Life, as we Grow in Christ, and CHRISTLIKENESS, as we Run The Race and pass each Milestone on our way, keeping in mind that all these things are to Equip us, and to Prepare us, TO PREACH, TEACH, AND DEMONSTRATE THE GOSPEL TO A DEAD AND DYING WORLD!!! Our Growth is NOT the end game, but merely us Living and Demonstrating Christ to an unbelieving world AND to call out of that world all the lost sheep into the Fold of Christ. No goats will enter Heaven, and NOT ONE of Christ's lost sheep will stay lost, NOT ONE. Imagine, all these Things of Christ being manifested to, and through you, as the Holy Spirit determines, that ALL will, Be Blessed.
