DEVELOPING FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT. Gal. 5: 22-23
LOVE: Love is not the absence of hateful people, you just love them from your heart by resting your strength on the word of God and power of The Holy Spirit. Rom. 12: 9. 1Peter 1: 22
JOY: Joy is not the absence of sorrow or despair but joy comes out from within you Phil. 4:4. Neh. 8:10. Nehemiah expressed that after finishing the work despite the work of his adversaries
PEACE: Peace is expressed in the midst of trouble or worrisome situations. Phil. 4:7
PATIENCE: When Patience is exhausting and instead of hasty decision, you experience long-suffering or extra-mile of tolerance.
MEEKNESS/KINDNESS: Meekness is not weakness. It’s power covered with humility (kindness) even in the face of aggression or persecution
GOODNESS: You choose freely to be good people whether or not they deserve it even to your enemy
FAITHFULNESS: is when you choose to be on the Lord’s side even in the midst of unbelievers or backsliders 1John 2:15-17
GENTLENESS: Gentleness is expressed when you are supposed to be rash in your response to people but The Holy Spirit enables you to be gentle. It’s not stupidity, it’s about being civil.
SELF-CONTROL: Like meekness, self-control is the control you bring yourself under to maintain Christ lifestyle or be a good example of believer. 1Tim. 4:12
LIVING THE WORD & YIELDING TO THE HOLY SPIRIT.
Beloved, have a fruitful week. ✝️🍇🍓
