“The Fruit of the Spirit”

As I mentioned in my previous post I likened the fruit of the Spirit to a bunch of grapes–individual grapes attached to one small vine. If we have the Holy Spirit within us (along with God the Father and God the Son), He helps us exhibit/show all the fruit.

It won’t work if you try to play whack-a-mole: working on one or two of the fruit while neglecting the others. It just doesn’t work that way. We can’t live them out by will-power. It must be the Holy Spirit working in and through us.

“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23
