But the spiritual nature produces love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There are no laws against things like that. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified their corrupt nature along with its passions and desires. If we live by our spiritual nature, then our lives need to conform to our spiritual nature. Galatians 5:22-25
Notice how the kitten trustingly receives its bath.
My kisses are sweet dear bride. My word washes over you and that word is Spirit and it is life.
Then a shoot will come out from the stump of Jesse, and a branch from its roots will bear fruit. The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him– the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of advice and power, the Spirit of knowledge and fear of the LORD. He will gladly bear the fear of the LORD. He will not judge by what his eyes see or decide by what his ears hear. Isaiah 11:1-2
Be washed by the sanctifying work of the Spirit through the Word of the Spirit, resulting in the fruit of the Spirit.
He kisses and embraces His dear bride with His word which is the kiss of His lips. -Martin Luther
