But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things, there is no law.Galatians 5:22-23
Fruit of the Spirit Devotional
Salvation is just the start of a new believer’s beginning. God places his Holy Spirit in the heart of the believer at the moment of conversion and the transformation begins. The Holy Spirit is meant to continually help and guide the believer through this life as he or she makes decisions every single day. When faced with a choice, the new believer will now have the direction of the Holy Spirit and can pray and ask for help at any time. Not only does the Spirit offer His wisdom, but He also produces fruit that will bloom throughout the believer’s life. So the old way of living vanishes and is replaced by a new life with the Lord. What is the fruit you may ask? This verse tells us the fruit the Spirit produces within us is: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. And the wonderful part of it all is that there is no law and no limit to these fruits which are constantly being produced.
Take heart that whether you are a new believer such as the one described here, or a seasoned believer, you have the Holy Spirit living and breathing inside of you, working to produce a life that pleases the Lord. The Holy Spirit never leaves, is always interceding on your behalf, and never stops producing well within you.
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you for sending the Holy Spirit to work inside of me. Thank you for never leaving me and always working to make me someone who is pleasing to you. May my life be a sweet aroma before you.
