"Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. 2 Corinthians 7:1 ... dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."

True fruit of the Spirit is manifested with all goodness, righteousness and truth. Those who fake the fruit of the Spirit, and those who manifest the works of the Flesh, will not inherit the kingdom of God.
We Christians know that our Lord Jesus Christ lived as a man, without committing any sin. Then we very swiftly find reasons for him not committing sins and we will always be committing sins until we die. The reason we find is simple. Catholics say that Mary got the immaculate conception and so there is not sin in his body. We know that it is a made up story, it is not in the Bible, and it is not true. Then we say that he was 100% man and 100% God and that is why he did not sin. We know that is another foolish lie, and it is opposite to what the Bible says. If you like to clear this, you may check it out from this link: "Jesus lived as Man", and "Man or God- video." Actually, Jesus was born with sinful flesh. "Romans 8:3 ...God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:" Being himself in sinful flesh, he did not commit any sin. "2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin;" He was tempted as we are tempted, but he did not commit sin because of the power of God and of the Holy Ghost. So, he will help us also, if we honestly seek his power and his spirit, "Hebrews 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 2:18 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted." If we ask and receive his power and protection, we will be his disciples. Become a disciple is not just to boast ourselves, but to follow in his steps. "1 Peter 2:21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: 22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:"
