Vital signs


The Fruit of the Spirit is listed in Galatians 5—love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. These qualities make up the Fruit.


There are “not”nine different fruits—it is a nine-part Fruit. The Fruit is like an orange, and inside the orange, there are numerous slices. So, imagine that each slice of the orange is one of the aspects of the Fruit of the Spirit.


Why was the Fruit of the Spirit even mentioned?


Galatians 5:17 says, “the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh.” Bottom line: you can be led by the flesh, or you can be led by the Spirit of God, but you can’t be led by both.


Verse 23 says “There is no law against them.” Meaning; We can never show too much love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.


Now, that’s a goal to strive for!


Remember; we only bear the fruit he produces in us. Our job is to abide in Him.
