Sometimes for me, things become more clarified and clear with a simple comparison list.

I'll use the HCSB translation for this...

Flesh-----------------------------------------------Spirit
Sexual Immorality--------------------------------Love
Moral Impurity------------------------------------Joy
Promiscuity--------------------------------------- Peace
Idolatry-------------------------------------------Patience
Sorcery--------------------------------------------Kindness
Hatreds--------------------------------------------Goodness
Strife-----------------------------------------------Faith
Jealousy-------------------------------------------Gentleness
Outbursts of anger------------------------------Self-control
Selfish ambitions
Dissensions
Factions
Envy
Drunkenness
Carousing
Anything similar



Galatians 5


19 Now the works of the flesh are obvious: [a] sexual immorality, (T) moral impurity, (U) promiscuity, (V) 20 idolatry, (W) sorcery, (X) hatreds, (Y) strife, (Z) jealousy, (AA) outbursts of anger, (AB) selfish ambitions, (AC) dissensions, (AD) factions, (AE) 21 envy, (AF) [c] drunkenness, carousing, (AG) and anything similar, about which I tell you in advance—as I told you before—that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. (AH)

22 But the fruit of the Spirit (AI) is love, (AJ) joy, (AK) peace, patience, (AL) kindness, (AM) goodness, faith, [d] 23 gentleness, (AN) self-control. (
