In His Word Wednesday

Fruits of the Spirit...

Galatians 5:22
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

My footnotes say..
Christian character is produced by the Holy Spirit, not by the mere discipline of trying to live by law. The indwelling Holy Spirit produces Christian virtues in the believer's life.

In the coming weeks I think I'll take these "fruits of the spirit" one by one and look up verses on each one.
I think as humans it's impossible to have these "fruits" all the time , but we should strive and improve ourselves toward that goal with the Holy Spirit's help!!
What has God been teaching you lately.
Do you have a prayer request?
Do you have a Bible verse that has stuck out to you?
You can just leave your link, words, or prayer request here as a comment. We'd love to know how to pray for you. If you don't want to elaborate just let us know you have an unspoken prayer request. We can still pray for you because God already knows!!

Prayer Request --
My mom made it to the Dominican.
Pray for continued safety and that God's will be done.
~Thank-you for your prayers~

Hey, Beth Moore has a great study on the Fruits of the Spirit. I will look up some things that really stuck with me, and share those with you... She is such a wonderful teacher.

I think you can possess all of them also... It takes some hard work tho, between you and the Spirit...
