The Sweetest of Fruit

God’s children are known to the world by their fruit. When the Holy Spirit takes up residence in our heart and soul, what should be visible is fruit. Specifically fruit of the Holy Spirit. This comes in the form of unselfish and unrestrained love for fellow man. 

Joy…abounding from the soul. Not only in the good times, but also in life’s storms. Joy that comes only from God. These are accompanied by a soul filled with peace, which is evident even to those outside looking in. So many more “fruits” are to be harvested when the Holy Spirit lives in us. Patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. When we abide in the life changing power of the Holy Spirit, all of these fruits grow, producing a human spirit that is nurtured by the Holy one. 

 Are you living in His Spirit? Are you walking in it daily? Is there evidence of such beautiful fruit when another looks at you? That fruit sets us apart from all others. Can you taste the sweetness of the fruit of the Holy Spirit? If not, maybe it’s time to sit in the garden with Him and let Him water your garden with Living Water. Cultivate your relationship with Him. Only then will you enjoy endless bushels of Spirit filled fruit.

    Thank you Tonya. I have needed a boost in my morning time study and have been a little bit lost, which is unusual for me. We all have our down times and my M.S. has been kicking me a little bit more than I like and as a result I have just felt lost. Last night I thought to myself “I need a direction” and here you are this morning and I know this is no accident, there are no accidents with God. This is my direction and I am going to this scripture. Many, many thanks.
    Your sister in Christ

      I absolutely love how God is always present. He is always perfect in timing. I praise Him for allowing me to be a messenger for Him. I pray you feel better soon. I battle RA and Lupus. I too have been down much more recently with pain and weakness. I will pray for you dear sister. May you feel the love of Jesus wrapped around you and lifting you up.
