    It's hard to have one without the other and make any function. Not that we have any way of earning our salvation, but without evidence of a change in behavior from selfishness to selflessness our conversion might be suspect. In Ephesians Paul speaks about being created in Christ Jesus for good works. Doing for others, living a Godly life is a natural by product of being in Christ, we are not our own, we were bought with His blood.

    I've described it by my experience in a taxidermy class I took in high school. We had a book written by a renowned taxidermist named Richard Schmidt. The teacher described it as the taxidermist's bible. It was a small paperback that I studied and memorized, I knew it cover to cover. Knowing everything in that book however didn't make me a taxidermist, even getting my taxidermist license didn't make me a taxidermist. It was not until I did the job of a taxidermist was I considered a taxidermist.

    If we are part of the body of Christ we will naturally be about the will of God. You can't be a part of Christ and make no change in our lives and not exhibit and of the fruit of the Spirit.
