The Fruit of the Spirit: Self-Control

The Fruit of the Spirit: Self-Control

“He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city” (Prov. 16:32, MEV).   Self-control, temperance, moderation, and self-restraint are all terms used to define the last of the fruit listed in Galatians 5:22-23. The word used in the Bible for self-control […]

The Fruit of the Spirit: Gentleness

The Fruit of the Spirit: Gentleness

“Now I, Paul, who am lowly in presence among you but bold toward you while absent, appeal to you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ” (2 Cor. 10:1, MEV).   Gentleness, one part of the fruit of the Spirit, needs a place in our everyday lives. Often translated humility or meekness, the word gentleness […]

The Fruit of the Spirit: Faithfulness

The Fruit of the Spirit: Faithfulness

“These will wage war with the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings. Those who are with Him are called and chosen and faithful.” (Rev. 17:14, MEV).   Martin Luther defined faith as “a living, daring confidence in God’s grace, so sure that one would […]

The Fruit of the Spirit: Goodness

The Fruit of the Spirit: Goodness

“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things. And an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things” (Matt. 12:35, MEV).   This statement from Jesus shows the three stages of goodness: first, the man is essentially good; second, he has good stored up in […]

The Fruit of the Spirit: Kindness

The Fruit of the Spirit: Kindness

“Be kind and compassionate to one another” (Eph. 4:32, MEV)   The kindness that comes as a fruit of the Spirit is revealed in the life of Jesus in His darkest hour of trial. When Judas and the soldiers came to the garden to take Jesus, Peter used his sword to wound the ear of […]

The Fruit of the Spirit: Patience

The Fruit of the Spirit: Patience

“Keep in mind that the patience of our Lord means salvation” (2 Peter 3:15, MEV).   The word patience, as it is used in the New Testament, really has no equivalent in the English language. Patience is the powerful capacity of selfless love to suffer long under adversity. It is the ability to bear with […]

The Fruit of the Spirit: Peace

The Fruit of the Spirit: Peace

“For He is our peace, who has made both groups one and has broken down the barrier of the dividing wall” (Eph. 2:14).   The word peace as used in the gospels and in Ephesians means to bind together those things that were separated. Jesus made peace through the blood of His cross (Col. 1:20), […]

The Fruit of the Spirit: Joy

The Fruit of the Spirit: Joy

“I have spoken these things to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full” (John 15:11, MEV).   Loveless Christians are joyless Christians. But when self is drowned in the love of Christ, the result will be unspeakable joy. Faith in Christ implants joy in the believer’s heart. […]

The Fruit of the Spirit: Love

The Fruit of the Spirit: Love

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:34-35, MEV). Love is the first and greatest of the fruit of the […]

The Fruit of the Spirit

The Fruit of the Spirit

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and self-control … If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit” (Gal. 5:22-25, MEV).    The fruit of the Spirit identifies the Spirit-filled believer. Just as speaking with other tongues confirms the baptism in the Holy […]
