Fruit of the Spirit

Just as a good and healthy tree bears much fruit, those who are spirit-filled also bear spiritual fruit, called the fruit of the Spirit. Bearing fruit is a figurative term for exhibiting behavior that builds others up to the glory of God.

"The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control" (Galatians -23). Such edifying characteristics flow out naturally from us when we are filled with the Holy Spirit.

Our Lord Jesus said to the disciples, "by this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be my disciples" (John 15:8). When others see Christ through us, our Father in Heaven receives glory. That is our heart's wish and the purpose of our lives.
