“Fruit of the Spirit – Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control – from Galatians 5:22-23
Scripture for the day
Galatians 5:22-26 New Living Translation (NLT) But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!
24 Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. 25 Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives.
26 Let us not become conceited, or provoke one another, or be jealous of one another.
Thought for the day
The true fruit of the Spirit is unique. Jesus used examples of trees bearing fruit. “By the fruit of their lives you will know them“. Luke 6:44 For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.
A person who does not have the Holy Spirit cannot show or have true love, joy or peace. No one can fake the fruit that comes from the Spirit. These qualities in their true meanings come from God through His Spirit.
I will continue to offer more on this extremely important aspect of Christian living, be blessed— ♥ Tim.
