But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. (Galatians 5:22-23)
To my mind, the Fruit of the Spirit is about trying to take on the attributes and characters of GOD. We have all heard the expressions “The love of God” or “The peace of God…”etc. These are all fruit of His Spirit, that we can manifest in our own lives in order to become more like him.
So as we try to follow the Holy Spirit, and seek the power and strength of the Spirit, we will see these things come to fruition in our own lives.
I sort of think that we really have no idea what we are getting ourselves in for when we ask Jesus into our lives. We receive salvation, but the process of sanctification (becoming pure, and Christ-like) takes longer.
For this, we need to start developing Spiritual Fruit.
More about these Fruit next week.
