   Fruit of the Spirit



But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy,

 peace,   longsuffering, kindness, goodness,

 faithfulnessmeekness, self control;

against such is no law.  Galatians 5:22, 23



When our lives are led by the Spirit of God (Holy Spirit), faithfulness is sure to follow.  Whatever adversities that come our way, whatever challenges we face, whatever mountains we have to climb, God is the same.  God is unchanging.  He is a steady as the stars.  He is unmovable.  It’s encouraging to know that God can be counted on.


Faithful qualities has kingly and godlike traits.  When we gain this characteristic of faithfulness, we become somebody real and dependable—not superficial.  True worth is in being, not seeming.  There is nothing more royal than that.  But this life is a struggle.  We all have them.  In those moments, look beyond the weaknesses and look to God’ strength.  Trust Him.


Watch and pray that ye enter not into temptation, the spirit indeed I willing but the flesh is week.” 

Matthew 26:41


With faith in God we find support and strength.” 

Psalm 27:13, 14


Faithfulness helps us to be examples of truthfulness to others that look to us.  What a great way to glorify God’s love for His children than faithfulness.

Meekness - Humbless, patient or docile, as under provocation from others.


Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart and ye shall find rest into your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”  Matthew 11:28-30


Meekness was one of Jesus sweet, enduring characteristics.  No vengeance.  No malice.  No false pretensions.  Jesus endured more suffering and wrongs.  He suffered them patiently.  Jesus never broke the calmness of His life.  Jesus suffered quietly.  There was nothing the world could do to break him.


We are to learn from Jesus.  If we ever want to have internal peace, we can achieve this by learning from Jesus.  As Jesus washed the feet of His disciples, we are told to do so also.  Jesus  was not a coward.  He was the true example of bravery.  He was a lamb, but when His teaching was attacked, He was fearless and combative. 


Some people think that meekness is a sign of weakness, but this is not the case.  The meek person is not concerned only with themselves, ideas and wishes.  The meek person is willing to put themselves in second place to achieve what is good for others.  It requires self-control to submit to others which is a sign of strength.


Blessed are the meek (gentle), for they shall inherit the earth.  Matthew 5:5


Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall.  It is better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly.  Proverbs 16:18, 19

Self-Control:  the ability to control oneself, in particular one’s emotions and desires or the expression of them in one’s behavior.


There is no greater victory than mastering self-control.  The opposite of self-control is an unflattering list. Here are just a few:


- gluttony

- lust

- gossip

- spite

- drunkenness

- bad temper


Even those things that are good, if pursed to excess are not good.  How is self-controlled accomplished?  These two verses say it all for me: 


“This I say to walk in the Spirit and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.”  Galatians 5:16


“And be not drunk with win, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit.”  Ephesians 4:18


These two passages tell us that it benefits us to be Spirit-filled.  The person who controls himself attains the highest accomplishments.


“Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.”  Proverbs 16:32


To be the master of yourself you are the master of fate.  Let’s remember that if we strive for self-control, we will master those things that bind us.


It’s not an easy task to have self-control in all situations, but it benefits us if we at least try.  Devote yourself to scripture daily, pray often and ask God to grant you a Spirit-filled life that will help with self-control.


“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.”  1 Corinthians 9:24-27
