Gal.5.22-23.kjv – But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
The fruit of the Spirit is the spontaneous work of the Holy Spirit in us. The Spirit produces these character traits that are found in the nature of Christ. They are the by-products of Christ’s control-we can’t obtain them by trying to get them without his help. If we want the fruit of the Spirit to grow in us, we must join our lives to his. We must know him, love him, remember him, and imitate him. As a result, we will fulfill the intended purpose of the law to love God and our neighbors. Which of these qualities do you want the Spirit to produce in you?
Father I thank you for loving me. Thank you sparing my life to see another day. I pray for your help in putting away the things of the flesh and in the taking on of the beautiful, heavenly / earthly beneficial fruits of the Holy Spirit. I join my life to yours and declare not my will but yours be done in Jesus’s name I pray. Amen
