But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things! (Galatians 5:22-23)
Galatians is an incredible book which speaks of our freedom in Christ. In chapter 5 of Galatians, Paul gives us a description of what a Spirit-filled believer will live like. Specifically, there are nine main types of ‘fruit’ that Holy Spirit brings. These are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Over the next two weeks, I’d like to take a look at each individual ‘fruit.’ As a son or daughter of the Most High King, you have the power within you to produce each of these. Holy Spirit inside of you will teach you how to walk in them. These are not unattainable attributes that you’ll never be able to live up to; rather, they are who God made you to be. When Jesus made you a new creation, He saw you as becoming these characteristics. He believed that you could be defined by these qualities; I believe you can too.Like what you've read?
