Fruit of The Spirit


Gal 5:22-24
 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
NIV

A fruit is product of the process of growth a seed that has been planted undergoes.
When you were born again, the seed of God was planted within you. God did this with the intension that it will bear fruit.
It is your responsibility to nurture this seed (which is your new nature that does not support sin) such that you begin to bear fruit.
This new righteous nature you have is a result of the Holy Spirit who now lives within you.
If by any means you have observed that the fruit of the spirit is not manifested in your life the way it should, do not be discouraged, instead set your heart on God. God has made the grace available for you to live a victorious Christian life in the world, plug into this grace by trusting in Him and consciously apportioning time to do the things that enhance your faith. God has also made all blessing available for you so you can do this without struggle. All you need to do is to depend on His grace and His power within you (the Holy Spirit) and stop depending on your will to bear the fruit of the Spirit.
Just like a fruit is proof of the maturity of a tree or plant, the fruit of the Spirit you bear is proof of your spiritual maturity, and this maturity is tantamount to spiritual power and authority. God’s plan for you is that you walk in this authority every day.
Prayer: Lord I thank you for your word. Please give me the grace to bear the fruit of the Spirit today and Every day. Amen
