Galatians 5:22 (NET) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness
From when Lanre was a little boy, he knew his mother did not love him like she did his brothers and sisters. He also wondered why his father was so mean to him and to every one of his siblings. It wasn't until he turned 12 that he realized that neither his mother nor his father were his biological parents. The woman who was raising him was his mother's younger sister. The man he grew up to call daddy was her husband, and neither he nor her three other children were his biological children.

As Lanre grew older and became a believer, he stopped being angry and bitter with the fact that he was not loved by the woman he called mother. He got to a point where he could understand that she was just a human being. She did not have enough love to extend to anyone who was not her biological child.

When we speak about the fruit of the spirit, it is the nature of God that is sown in our spirits when we believe and abide in Christ. It is a nature that has attributes we find in Galatians 5:22-23 and 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. Normally, the more a believer grows spiritually, the more his life should manifest the fruit of the spirit.

We were born with a nature that is hostile to God. This nature is called "flesh" in scripture. But when we become believers in Christ Jesus, God's goal for us is that we become like Him in nature and character. The more of God's nature our lives manifest, the more fruitful we are in the sight of God.

Go into today remembering that Jesus has ordained you to bring forth fruits that will remain.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
