APRIL 22 – GAL. 5:22-23

04/22          GALATIANS 5:22-23

But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!


The call is for each part of the whole.  The characteristics link together as a whole.  We don’t have a part of the nine characteristics of fruit, we work to be completely whole, each element connecting with the next.  If we love, we will have joy, underscored by peace, significant patience, a heart of kindness and goodness, significant faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.  Fruit is the makeup of the Christian life.  Live it.
