The fruit of the spirit should be an attribute of every Believer. It’s Inherently becoming more like Christ Jesus. Spiritual fruit will show itself in our lives as Believers, this will reflect in our character, attitude, and outlook. As we spend more time with God asking the Holy spirit to direct and teach us, we become more like Jesus. Same way as we continue to read, study, and meditate on the scriptures we cultivate the mind of Christ Jesus.
In the book of Galatians the fruit of the spirit has been succinctly stated, it tells we Believers how significant it is to bear such fruit. [cf. Galatians 5:22-23]
The scripture gives an excellent description of life characterized by the fruit of the spirit, As Christ followers, We need to ask ourselves this question, is our life characterized by the fruit of the spirit? Do we love our neighbors? Are we faithful to one another? Are we patient with one another and ourselves? The Scriptures makes us understand that, without these things either we don’t know Christ Jesus or we are living outside of the fellowship with Him. God isn’t asking as for a perfect life. He’s asking that these fruit should be the primary characteristics of a every Believer.
“The fruit of the spirit is a Spiritual virtue produced by the Holy Spirit which manifests in every Believer’s life.”
The more completely a Believer is filled with the Holy spirit, the greater the manifestation of the fruit of the spirit in the Believers life. The fruit of the spirit is produced automatically when we’re yielding to the Holy spirit and walking in obedience to Him. Walking by the spirit is keeping ourself constantly filled, as we yield moment by moment to the leading of the spirit, thereby bearing spiritual fruit to the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Yours In Christ, Shalom.

WALKING IN UPRIGHTNESS
Uprightness is key to God, and we ought to prioritize being upright at all times in every aspect of our life. Consider this, the upright will dwell forever with God.
Uprightness brings to mind the notions of unchanging standards, correctness, genuineness, and forthrightness. When we walk in uprightness, we also have the right to lay claim to God’s ability to defend us, and He certainly will. Continue Reading…
