Fruit of the Spirit

Together with kindness and in understanding, let’s take this time to self reflect. I am here to inspire, encourage, and remind you that God has given us the most important weapon we have to fight the enemy, his Word.

Now let’s dress our soul like we dress our bodies, EVERYDAY!

The Fruit of the Spirit

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23 NKJV

This week I have been sharing who is the Holy Spirit. John 16:13 says, the spirit of truth has come and guides us into all truth. If there is ever any guidance in our lives it should be in Gods truth. It is the only thing that will stand the test of time.

The fruit of the Spirit is the characteristic of God. It is the example of conduct manifested in our lives as believers. It is a representation of the holy spirit’s presence in our lives as we grow as believers. Theses fruits are about how we show change in our life.

Lets briefly look at the fruit:

Love- Love is the key. God loved us so much that he gave his only begotten son, so that we might have a right to the tree of life. Love always protects, trusts, hopes, and perseveres.

Joy- One of the most powerful ways to find and keep your joy, is through prayer and worship. No matter what goes on around us we have joy in knowing that God will take care of us.

Peace- “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:27 ┬áHe will keep us in perfect peace when our mind is stayed on him.

Long Suffering (patience)-There is nothing like the timing of God. Trust in him, for his Word tells us they that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength.

Kindness- “Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:32

Faithfulness- You have been faithful over the few things God has given you friends. Continue to trust his will and way.

Gentleness-To be gentle is not weakness and is visible in the way you talk, walk, and treat others. “A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” Proverbs 15:1

Self Control- It comes from the indwelling and transformation by the Holy Spirit. I read that self control proceeds out from within oneself, but not by oneself. We need the help of the Holy Spirit.

The primary purpose of the Fruit of the Holy Spirit represents change as we apply them to our daily lives.

Remember we are each others keeper and the only time we should be looking down on someone is when we are helping them up.
