Topic: Fruits of the Spirit
Text: Galatians 5:22=24
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
Welcoming you to another moment of refreshing today! God through His Spirit will refresh us in Jesus name. Fruits of the Spirit is one of the topics that the teachers of the Word do speak or teach among the Christians or in many churches worldwide from time immemorial, but it is painful that the fruits of the spirit could not be found in the lives of many who claimed to be Christians or church goers nowadays.
Fruits of the Spirit are Christlike characters that we begin to produce as a result of our new found faith, belief in Christ or confession and acceptance that Christ is the Lord and our personal saviour. All who had accepted Christ must have the fruits of the Spirit, it must definitely manifest in the lives of everyone who claimed to have accepted Christ to be his or her personal Lord and saviour.
Many people are not really living Christian standard today because fruits of the Spirit is nowhere to be found in their lives. Someone who claimed to know the Lord still engage in sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry, witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, envy; drunkenness, orgies
Are the fruits of the Spirit manifesting in your life? how many of the fruits are manifesting in you? The simple truth is that without it you cannot really claim to be a Christian. Show me your fruits of the spirit and I will tell you if you are a Christian or not. Every Christian must live his or her daily life manifesting the fruits of the Spirit which are: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance.
Bearing of fruits is a must, stop being canal! Repent and be saved.
