Links to the Fruit of the Spirit Complete Bible Study Series:

Love – This is agapē love. The perfect / genuine love God has for His people. God is the source of this love. God is love (1 John 4:8, 16). [Read 1 John 4:7-19]

Joy – from the Greek word chará. A divine joy that is beyond words (1 Peter 1:8). The gladness no one can take from you. [See John 16:22]

Peace – from the Greek word eirene. The peace the world cannot give. (John 14:27) Often used in the phrase, God of peace. [read Romans 15:33; 16:20; Philippians 4:9; 1 Thessalonians 5:23; Hebrews 13:20]

Patience – from the Greek word makrothumia. Patience is also known as long-suffering. To endure all things without anger or complaint. The ability to wait and not act or react. Showing love to others in spite of their faults (Ephesians 4:2). Love is patient (1 Corinthians 13:4).

Kindness – from the Greek word chrestotes. Kindness is also known as gentleness. Love that comes from God is kind. [Titus 3:1-8 (key verse: 4)] Kindness cares about the needs of others. It is tender, selfless and giving. Does not do things looking for a reward. Love is kind. [1 Corinthians 13:4]

Goodness – from the Greek word agathosune. Goodness says: You can rely on me. Let me help you do what is right. I have a good outlook on life. God is the perfect good. With me in you, you can be like Him. Proverbs 11:18 Meanness gets you nowhere, but goodness is rewarded. (CEV)

Faithfulness – from the Greek word pistis. Belief in God without doubt. Firm faith in and dedication to God. It is a steady commitment to God. Actions based on faith in God. In 1 Timothy 6:11 Paul urged Timothy to “…pursue righteousness, holy living, faithfulness, love, endurance, and gentleness.”. I urge you to learn to be faithful to God.

Gentleness – from the Greek word praotes. Gentleness is also known as meekness. The state of being classy, but not high-minded. Caring, and not violent or harsh to others. A gentle person is friendly, neighborly and easy going.

Self-control – from the Greek word egkrateia. Self-control is also known as temperance. The use of strength-of-will over one’s actions and desires. The aim is to obey and please God in all things.

“True Love – Agape Love”

Scripture and thought for the day:

Romans 12:9-11 Be sincere in your love for others. Hate everything that is evil and hold tight to everything that is good. 10 Love each other as brothers and sisters and honor others more than you do yourself. 11 Never give up. Eagerly follow the Holy Spirit and serve the Lord. (CEV)

If you do not have the Holy Spirit, you do not have agape love. Agápē is the only form of love gifted by God (to those who have faith in Him). Note: this is the love that husbands should have for their wife.

Have a loving day; be blessed—I love you, ♥ Tim.

Fruit of the Spirit – Can Others See God Thru You

Message in the picture

“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.
