Fruit of the Spirit series

Galatians 5:22-23
But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!

John 15:4-5
Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is served from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.

James 1:2-4
Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.


I want to thank everyone for commenting back and emailing me about the last post I did. This afternoon on the bus was rough, and it was nice to come home to encouragement.

I have quite a bit to say about the Fruit of the Spirit and my thoughts on my spiritual life right now, but on Word it's about 2 pages long, so I figured I'd break it up. Today you get the verses.

I absolutely love Galatians 5:22-23. I did a study on these and am constantly wondering if people can see them in my life. It is late though and I have an early morning. I'll post more another day.


  1. Hey, I recognize that fruit picture! :-)

  2. Let me be totally honest here. I was just thinking about writing a blog about the Fruits of the Spirit. That is so strange to me.

    In my youth group right now, we're talking about etiquette, and I don't understand why we are, but the main verse to it is Galatians 5:22-23. Two weeks ago, the senior pastor challenged us teens to memorize the verse and if we did we got a prize.

    I hate memorizing, and I thought because I wasn't going to be there (oh the joys of marching band) that I wouldn't memorize the verse. I got bored one day last week and decided to make a movie and what I came up with was actions to go along with the verse. I emailed my video to the senior pastor and he asked if he could show it to the youth group. SO even though I was at marching band during youth group, I was there in a movie.

    Needless to say, I still have it memorized because of the hand signals I used. And you know? I think I helped my youth group out a lot because a lot of them were commenting on it and doing some of the hand signals.

    Anyways, I look forward to hearing what you have to say about the Fruit of the Spirit.
