The Fruit of the Spirit -- --

 

 

The focus of the sermons as we worship God through the end of the year will be the scripture found in Galatians 5: 22-26.  It is crucial for us to understand that this fruit is not produced by us, it is produced in us; by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.  Please note that this fruit is singular; it is not plural.  These are not the fruits of the Spirit, they are the fruit of the Spirit.  You see, it is not like the gifts of the Spirit where different Christians have different gifts, although no one Christian has all the gifts.  But every Christian is to bear the full fruit of the Spirit.  The fruit of the Spirit is not like an apple on a stem, it is like grapes in a cluster.  This fruit is never out of season, it is always ripe and tasty.  

 

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.  (Galatians : 22-23)

 

Each of these is a characteristic of the Holy Spirit's active presence in our daily activities.  It is helpful for each of us to examine our own lives as we look at each fruit of the spirit.
