Galatians 5:22-23 and Strawberries, Eastern Nebraska.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23
Live by the Fruit of the Spirit
I love fruit. Think of all its great qualities. Fruit is juicy, sweet, nutritious and it contains seeds to give life. When we think of the goodness of fruit we find it easy to understand why God told Christians to bear the fruit of the spirit.
When we first believe and start to follow Jesus the fruit of the spirit begins to grow in our life. That doesn’t mean we won’t ever sin, but if someone calls themselves a Christian we should see spiritual fruit in their life. So much so that Matthew 7:20 tell us, “So then, you will know them by their fruits.”
Christ is evident in us by our good works. When we show the Fruit of the Spirit we show Christ to the world.
Read all of Galatians 5.
