  1. Amen! The Spirit borne these fruits in us! I had none of these before I knew Christ and I’m still learning a few of these daily.. in gardening, in marriage, in families, in kids day camp … yes keep in step with the Spirits leading and looking more like Christ.. hallelujah \0/

  2. In Courage,

    This world makes it hard to be Christlike & bear fruit. There is so much distention & hatred. We need to take every effort to keep our tanks filled. Every day we must take time to be with God & get our empty souls, heart & minds refilled with His goodness. Praying, Reading the Bible & listening to Christian music are ways we can do this. Once done we can go out into this dark world & bear much fruit for His kingdom. Lysa Terkeurst said it best in her book The Best Yes: that saying yes to everything & everyone won’t make you Wonder woman. It will make you a worn out woman with nothing left to give anyone. We must be careful not to be constantly doing doing doing. But to pray about what tasks God has planned for us. Once we get our daily allowance of God’s goodness we will be ready to fight the battle & bear him much fruit.

    Blessings 🙂

  3. This why we must find time in the business of our day for Prayer and Bible reading. Fill our minds with the things of Jesus. As if we don’t it is so easy to get our eyes on things that are not Godly. Then the Devil creaps in then we end up doing and saying things we should not. Afterwards we end up regretting it. Wishing we never done it. Then we have to go the Father in true repentance say sorry like David did in Psalm 51. We have to make sure God Holy Spirit as Christians guids us every day in everything we do. We do everything we do in love and kindness. If we have someone we need to forgive we forgive them as if don’t. It will only eat up. It is what Gods word tell us to do in Ephesians 4 verse 32. We will feel so much better when we have done it. Also having God Holy Spirit living in us and guiding us at all times. Helping us be the Christian God wants us to be. Loving caring and kind to all man kind saved or not saved. Excellent reading.
