Spirit of God

Let’s review the nine fruits of the Spirit of God. We started with love, joy, peace and meekness, and devoted two columns to the art of long-suffering before moving on to gentleness, today’s topic. How many of us have now memorized the fruits in the order in which they are listed? I confess I got two of them out of order when writing and was excited to get to one I particularly liked and had to do some backtracking to get them back in perspective. Perhaps this will help: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance.

There seems to be a lack of the fruits of the Spirit of God in many of our lives in this day and age. Some have never even heard of living and demonstrating these fruits in their life and some do not believe they can undertake to do such a thing. The Bible talks about these fruits in the amazing book of Galatians in Scripture.
