In the Word of God we come across a Bible verse about the fruits of the spirit. The whole point to this verse is to show us evidences or actions that should be visible within a persons life when operating through the spirit of God in your life. The Bible verse that list the fruits of the spirit is Galatians 5 22:23:
“But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things! “
We have to understand that by ourselves, we are sinful by nature and therefore according to the Word of God, we are in a constant battle between our sinful nature and our desire to serve and follow God and do what is right.
God is love, His nature and His entire being radiates love and everything else that is good and just. When we ask Jesus Christ into hearts and we make Him Lord over our lives, we are given God’s Holy Spirit.
It is through this spirit that we are able to overcome sin and that we are able to let go of our sinful nature and our enslavement to it. Through Jesus Christ we are now able to live our lives with the help of and through the strength of the Holy Spirit within us.
When we live our lives operating in the spirit of God, it gives us the ability to show the attributes (fruits) of the Holy Spirit within our lives. When these fruits are evident in our lives, people who do not have the spirit within them can tell and they see a major difference, a difference that they want and desire.
