We finish up this letter with a series of super practical exhortations for believers. Rejoicing, praying and living in a posture of thankfulness are all key marks of someone who is walking with Jesus and being led by the Spirit. Living this way prevents us from quenching the work of the Spirit in us. Paul finishes this flurry of commands with a beautiful & hopeful reminder that it is God who accomplishes these things in us. It’s our job to walk with Him, & His job to produce fruit within us.
