we are to live by the Holy Spirit. "Because those who are led
by the Spirit of God are sons of God." Romans 8:14. When we
do, we will enjoy the fruit of the Spirit. The fruit of the
Spirit is more than just a list of blessings that God bestows on us.
It is also a good measure by which those seeking to live a Spirit-led
life can use to determine if their walk with the Lord is as Christ-like
as it should be. Christ is our supreme example for living.
We will look at each of these qualities; their definitions; how each
is exemplified by Jesus and give other Scripture references for each.
As you read through these pages, honestly consider if these qualities
are exemplified in you. Through God's grace and the power of
His Holy Spirit, we are transformed more and more each day into
the likeness of Christ so that people may truly be able to see our
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ living in us and through us!
"And we pray this in
order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him
in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the
knowledge of God" Colossians 1:10
the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things
there is no law." Galatians 5:22-23
