But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!Galatians 5: 22-23
Fruit of the Spirit
The Holy Spirit produces all that is good in our lives. Alone, we are sinful and stray away from the Lord. But with His help, we produce love for the world to see, a joy that affects others, a peace that is attractive to those around us, patience for others, kindness to those who need it most, all the goodness inside of us, faithfulness to those we love, gentleness when it’s hard, and a self-control to live in His Word. The beautiful part of this is that there is not a law against all of these things. We can never have too much fruit for the world to see! These fruits make Christiianity beautiful to others and lead them to the love of the Father.
Look at each of the fruits. Is there one that is harder than the others? Maybe you have a hard time with self-control. Maybe it’s gentleness in tough situations. Maybe you have a hard time keeping your promises and being faithful. Pray and ask the Holy Spirit to help you with that area of your life today.
A Prayer to Remember
May the fruit in my life be pleasing to you and attractive to others. May they see you when they see me. May my fruit draw them to you. Help me live like you would have me to live. Amen
