    Galatians 5:22-23 states, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.” Throughout the scriptures, it talks about identifying the Spirit with a burning in the bosom, however, that is seldom the case.
