πŸ‘‘ The Fruit Of The Spirit πŸ‡

β€œBut the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance; against such there is no law” (Gal.Β 5:22,23).

The β€œfruit of the Spirit” is that combination of graces evidenced in the lives of believers who β€œwalk in the Spirit.” Let us never make the mistake of supposing that β€œthe Spirit,” in Gal.Β 5 refers to β€œthe spirit of man which is in him” (I Cor.Β 2:11). It refers rather to the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God, who indwells believers. The spiritual virtues listed above do not spring from any goodness in us, but from the Spirit of God dwelling within.

Next, we should observe that these graces are not the product of human effort. The passage above declares that they are fruit, and fruit is the natural product of life and growth. Indeed, β€œthe fruit of the Spirit” is here contrasted with β€œthe works of the flesh” (Gal. 5:19-21), and these are all bad!

Finally, it is a remarkable fact that the graces which the Holy Spirit produces in yielded believers are certainly not those which the world admires. The world admires self-confidence, self-respect, self-made men, intellectual prowess, personal magnetism, authority, etc., while the Spirit produces β€œlove, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance.” But consider the difference. A man may have self-confidence, intellectual acumen, political or other power β€” and he may still be very difficult to live with, but not so with the virtues which the Spirit produces. Of those who possess these graces the Apostle says: β€œAgainst such there is no law.” source

Verse for 12/14/2017

And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born. And they said unto him, In Bethlehem of Judaea: for thus it is written by the prophet, And thou Bethlehem, in the land of Juda, art not the least among the princes of Juda: for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel. — Matthew 2:4-6
