The Fruit of the Spirit
The fruits of the Spirit, which includes love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, should be visible in our lives as Christians.

You’ll be able to identify them by their fruits.
According to Matthew 7:16–19
16. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17. Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Furthermore, no other name has been given among men by heaven by which we may be saved, so there is no salvation in any other name.
We cannot earn the right to appear before God, as emphasized in Acts 4 :12. We cannot earn eternal life. Only when we place our faith in Jesus Christ, who died on the cross to atone for our sins and rose again on the third day, do we find salvation. Accepting this gift requires us to directly ask Him to become our Lord and Savior. ALSO READ ON THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD
What the Spirit Produces in us
According to Galatians 5:22–23,
“Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control are the fruits of the Spirit.”
Are We Displaying The Fruit Of The Spirit In Our Lives?
Here are some queries we can pose to our kids and ourselves:
Have I grown in my love for God since last month? a year ago? How do I know? How might others know?
Although I know I can’t always be joyful, do I feel joy when I realize God is in charge and that I can put my trust in Him? Do I feel happier than I did before?
Do I sense His peace even in the midst of chaos? What impact does His peace have on me personally?
Am I getting more and more impatient or more and more patient? Our capacity for patience is influenced by a variety of situations, but like with all spiritual fruits, it’s crucial to consider the big picture.
Do I show kindness to people even when they are not showing it to me? How can I improve even more?
Do I understand what goodness is? Am I studying the Bible to understand what it means from God’s viewpoint?
Am I requesting that He operate in and thru me?
Do I follow through on my commitments, particularly when it comes to spiritual matters? Am I trustworthy?
Would people say I’m gentle? Do I communicate properly and softly, even when I can’t avoid conflict?
Do I practice restraint? Do I rely on God’s strength to carry out His will rather than my own when my wants conflict with what the Bible says is His will?
Recognizing Your Weaknesses And Asking For His Help
I have to admit that exercising self-control is perhaps my biggest challenge. I frequently give in to the small sourpuss voice in my head that cries, “I don’t want to.” Although I am grateful that God has already pardoned me, I still need to ask for His will to be done rather than my own more frequently.
I urge you to have a discussion with your kids about each thing on this list. Talk about what they see to be the meanings of kindness, serenity, and other concepts. Talk about what each means in light of the Bible. After that, ask God for this fruit to ripen in each of your lives.
And when we fall short of displaying the fruit of the Spirit as we would like, let’s prayerfully develop a plan to improve the next time, seeking His aid that only He can provide.
I implore you to accept God’s offer of salvation if you haven’t already. And if you have, I implore you to pray for the manifestation of the fruit of the Spirit in your life to grow.
According to chapter 5 of the Epistle to the Galatians, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” The term “fruit of the Holy Spirit” is a biblical term that encapsulates nine characteristics of a person or community living in accordance with the Holy Spirit. In this chapter, the fruit is compared to the acts of the flesh that come right before it.
The goal of the fruit of the spirit is to glorify God and make us more like Christ. Love, joy, and peace are listed as the fruit of the Spirit of God in Galatians 5:22–23. These are the things that bring us contentment and tranquility. It is simpler to show others kindness, compassion, and forgiveness.
