Sunday Walk 43 – Fruits of the Spirit

Pisgah National Forest, Overlook

ο δε καρπος του πνευματος εστιν αγαπη χαρα ειρηνη μακροθυμια χρηστοτης αγαθωσυνη πιστις
πραοτης εγκρατεια κατα των τοιουτων ουκ εστιν νομος

Galatians 5:22 and 23 with various translations

It is not merely that I can know them by the way they express, or don’t, the fruits of the Holy Spirit, but I can know myself by the way I express those fruits as well.

These fruits do not come from consuming therapies, taking drugs or following self-help programs to not behave badly. They are not my fruits, but the fruits of the Spirit, the Holy Spirit.

There is nothing easier than expressing them in stillness. There is nothing harder than giving up the addiction to my own spoiled fruits since faithlessness suggests that’s all there is.

  1. It would be wise of all those who claim the name “Christian” to examine whether or not they have really been born again if no fruit comes to life at least, even if it has not fully developed.

  2. I appreciate reading this, it is a beautiful reminder to me – Fruits of the spirit express with much ease and joy, and it is for us to learn of ourselves more from how we express them – very powerful.
