"the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience,
kindness,goodness, faithfulness,gentleness & self-control."
Let us reflect, answer these questions mentally:
1. What sort of fruit have you seen in your actions lately?
2. Are the fruits you're bearing show others what Jesus is like?
3. Recall your actions today of the past one week, were any of
these spiritual habits missing?
A. You can't have a mindset of self effort.
eg. Thinking "Perhaps if I try harder..."
No, the fruit of the Spirit can only be produced as we yield to God
and allow His Spirit to work in us as we walk through the events
and encounters life brings our way each day.
B. The fruit of the Spirit act as one.
They work together to present a whole.
C. As a whole, the 9 characterstics of the fruit are all produced the same way.
Whatever is said of one characteristic is true to the 8.
D. DO NOT forget the battle that is going on between your flesh and the Spirit.
Read: Galatians 5:17
You & I can overcome the cravings of the flesh by walking in the Spirit.
Always be contious of the Spirit.
Living each minute God's way-obeying Him.
Seeking to please God with:
the thoughts we CHOOSE to think,
the words we CHOOSE to say, and
the actions we CHOOSE to take.
Letting God guide us each step of the way.
Letting God work in us so that we can bring glory to Him.
