The Fruit Of The Spirit


The Fruit Of The Spirit

“But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control.”
Galatians 5:22

When you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, some of the benefits are shown in the scripture above, and will reflect the kind of life you can expect to have. When you begin looking at this scripture it includes fruits for everyone. The fruit of love, joy and peace is for your own personal enjoyment. These three fruits are the ones that will make you happy and contented, and the ones that will keep you above all the worries and cares of the world, as you will be comfortable and at peace, regardless of what is going on around you. The fruits of patience, kindness and goodness are fruits that you share with others. We need patience in dealing with people. We also need kindness and goodness to fulfill God’s commandment that we must love others as we love ourselves. These three fruits help us show our love for others, and fulfill God’s commission to us about how our relationship is to be with all the people we meet. The final three fruits deal with our relationship with God. Faithfulness is the way that we honor God, as we must put our trust and faith in Him, and depend on Him for all things. Gentleness and self control are necessary to keep us focused on honoring God and keeping His commands. This wonderful scripture has something for everybody. It has fruit that we can enjoy for ourselves, it has fruit that we can give to others, and it also has fruit that we share and honor God with. If you have Jesus, you have all nine of these fruits, and you are now complete in Jesus, as you partake of them.
