The Fruits Of The Spirit 


We already have all the Fruits of The Spirit within us. The Fruits represent God’s presence working within us. So when the enemy lies and tries to tell us we are missing or lacking in one of these things we can let him know he is a liar.

We have them ALL -they just have to be worked out and developed a little like building muscles.

If we stay connected to the Vine- Jesus; our fruit will be well developed and abundant.

* Below are my notes as I looked up the verses in the AMP, MSG, KJV & ESV translations for references. (Each Translation is also below)

Love (unconditional ; unselfish concern and affection for others)

Joy (Exuberance about life)

Peace (Serenity)

Patience (willingness to stick with things; long-suffering)

Kindness (a sense of compassion in the heart; gentleness)

Goodness (conviction that basic holiness permeates things and people)

Faithfulness (involved in loyal commitments; Faith)

Gentleness (not needing to force our way in life; meekness {strength under control})

Self-Control (able to marshal and direct our energies wisely; Temperance)

Fruits Of The Spirit=His Presence within us

             

             ~XXOO Michelle Bollom 

Galatians 5:22-26 But the fruit of the Spirit the result of His presence within us is love unselfish concern for others, joy, inner peace, patience not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature together with its passions and appetites. If we claim to live by the Holy Spirit, we must also walk by the Spirit with personal integrity, godly character, and moral courage—our conduct empowered by the Holy Spirit. We must not become conceited, challenging or provoking one another, envying one another. AMP

Galatians 5:22-26 But what happens when we live God’s way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard—things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force our way in life, able to marshal and direct our energies wisely. Legalism is helpless in bringing this about; it only gets in the way. Among those who belong to Christ, everything connected with getting our own way and mindlessly responding to what everyone else calls necessities is killed off for good—crucified. Since this is the kind of life we have chosen, the life of the Spirit, let us make sure that we do not just hold it as an idea in our heads or a sentiment in our hearts, but work out its implications in every detail of our lives. That means we will not compare ourselves with each other as if one of us were better and another worse. We have far more interesting things to do with our lives. Each of us is an original. MSG

Galatians 5:22-26 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another. KJV

Galatians 5:22-26 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another. ESV
