Accepting Jesus into our lives blends our Spirit with His Spirit. From this union comes the fruit of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control. As we begin our Christian walk, we need to live the integrity of the Spiritual Fruits.
The Fruit of Love is the most important fruit that we can taste. We are to love our fellow man as our selves. Without love, nothing else matters.
Joy…Happiness, a great pleasure, delight.
Peace…Can only be drawn from the Lord.
Longsuffering…Long, patient endurance of injuries, insults, trouble.
Kindness…Sympathetic, tenderhearted, generous.
Goodness…Honorable, respectable, morally sound.
Faithfulness…Unquestioning belief in God.
Gentleness…Courteous, calm, tranquil, quiet.
Self Control…Control our emotions, desires, actions.
The Fruits of the Spirit that we receive while here on earth is just a beginning of what we will encounter when we meet the Lord. With this in mind, reach forward for those things which are ahead.
