Where’s the Fruit?

“I say then:  walk in the Spirit and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.”  Gal. 5:16

V. 22-23 “ . . . the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faith, meekness, gentleness, and self-control, which such there is no law.”

.

We have bottles of prescription medicines, vitamin and mineral supplements, special remedies to enable the physical body to function properly.  Where is the nourishment and supplements for our spiritual bodies?  I would think the fruit of the Spirit should be on everyone’s menu for each day.  Let us seek them in God’s Word daily, the Holy Bible.  Pray for them to become part of our inner beings, and practice them so we may grow into the godly examples God desires of us to bring glory to His name. Amen

God Be in My Head

~ Henry Walford Davies

.

God be in my head, and in my understanding;

God be in mine eyes, and in my looking;

God be in my mouth and in my speaking;

God be in my heart, and in my thinking;

God be at mine end, and at my departing.

    Great blog…I just bought a sterling silver bangle from Ebay with the scripture from Gal 5:22 on the inside and the scripture on the outside. I bought this and wear it so I can see this scripture all the time because I want to have and do what it says. I want the fruit of the Spirit but sometimes don’t achieve all that I want to do….but I’m working on it…thanks to the Holy Spirit who leads me. I thank you for this post! God bless your writings!

  3. so necessary to understand that the gift of the Spirit isn’t the fruit ~ Wonderful writing dear!

    Hi,
    So true! The fruits of the spirit have to be cultivated in all Christians. The problem is that cultivation brings pain before the growth, because we have to let go of those fruit that are rotten within us.

    Enjoyed reading your post.

    Shalom,
    Patricia

    • You are so right, Pat. We all shy from pain, especially self-inflicted while doing some “house” cleaning. But … clean we must, and out goes the dust. 🙂
