Fruit Of The Spirit

Galations 5:22-23

(22) But the fruit of the Spirit is love,joy,peace,long suffering,gentleness,goodness,faith.

(23) Meekness,temperance:against such there is no law.

Today’s scripture is about the fruit of the Spirit. The word fruit is significant for three reasons.(1) It means the result,product,outcome or effect produced by the Spirit in the believers life.

(2) Unlike the gifts of the Spirit only some of which are given to a Christian,each believer is to have nine virtues composing “the fruit of the Spirit”.

(3) As a fruit on a tree takes time to grow and mature,so the Spirit does not cultivate these virtues in the believers life overnight.

In contrast to the works of the flesh,which any individual is capable of performing,the fruit of the Holy Spirit can be produced only by God. Christian character thus results from “Christ in me”. For this fruit to develop ,all nine aspects of the fruit of the Spirit must mature.

Prayer:

Lord,

Today I pray and ask that you help me grow in ways and keep me on the right path so all nine aspects of the fruit of the Spirit mature inside of me. This i pray in Jesus’ name. Amen!
