The Fruit of the Holy Spirit
The presence of the Holy Spirit in your life produces results that are called the Fruit of the Spirit. The Holy Spirit gives you the desire to do the right thing, and then He gives you the strength to do it as you let Him lead and help you in this way. He develops in you a wonderful Christian character. Your attitude, speech, and actions are like delicious fruit. Your family and friends will enjoy being around you, but most of all this fruit of the Spirit will please your heavenly Father.
Galatians 5:22-23 –“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control.”
Jesus had this to say for you and for me in John 15:8 – “By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.”
My friend, this is God’s desire for you and me, that we would live such a self-forgetful life, and as we do this His Holy Spirit comes through us all the time as we live life here on this earth. We must live with immediate and continual surrender to the Holy Spirit who lives inside of us.
