To put to death the deeds of the body we have to first understand what they are, and how they differ from living according to the flesh.

What does the Holy Spirit do for us?
Anything of eternal value in this life and in eternity comes through the work of the Holy Spirit in us.
What does it take to be longsuffering?
“Longsuffering” is perhaps not a common word in everyday vocabulary, but it is a fruit of the Spirit, the result of an inner cleansing process.
