We have looked at the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, but how about the Fruits of the Holy Spirit?
The Holy Spirit has given us the 7 gifts, wisdom, understanding, knowledge fortitude, counsel, piety, wonder and awe. It is how we use, and share these gifts which develops and produces the fruit of the Holy Spirit.
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Galations 5:22
The fruits determine our character. It is who we become.
It is how we are known
It is how we are described by others.
It is what others see in us.
It is our moral conscience.
It is our be-ing.
God planted the seed, it is up to us to produce the fruit.
You will know them by their fruits. Matthew 7:17
