Fruits of the Spirit... Part 1

As Jesus departed from this world he promised an advocate, the Holy Spirit. With the Holy Spirit comes fruit, but that fruit can only be accessed when you are in accord with the Spirit. The Bible doesn’t leave us wondering what the fruits of the spirit are but instead gives us scripture about them. Galatians 5:22-23 lists the Fruits of the Spirit for us - “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.” Each fruit is essential to have and grow with as a Christian, and you can only nurture and understand them when you are in tune with the Holy Spirit.

Have you ever heard of the phrase “Love Conquers All”? Well it’s true especially as a Christian. “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” (1 Peter 4:8) God commands His people to love each other deeply because there should be no place for hate in Christian’s heart. When Joy is produced by the Spirit it allows you to look at things in a lens. It causes you to see the beauty of Christ and what we have right now in this world and what is coming after it. Our joy ties into our love. Philippians 2:2 has this to say, “Then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.” Peace is probably the most vital Fruit of the Spirit because it is our spiritual reconciliation with God which we obtained when Jesus died for us. We can forget about the chaos of the world and embrace His peace with Him. “Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God.” (Romans 5: 1-2) Forbearance, also known as patience, is what separates most believers from unbelievers. As a believer we have to learn to be patient with others, situations and different seasons in our lives. The Bible tells us this: “Whoever is patient has great understanding, but one who is quick-tempered displays folly.” (Proverbs 14:29) We have to have forbearance as believers because the Holy Spirit living in us is longing to display His character to those around us.
