God’s Holy Spirit produces fruit in His Children. The following is a list of the fruit of the Spirit from Galatians 5:22-23 in four English translations.
|Longsuffering||Patience||Patient||A Quiet Mind|
|Temperance||Self-control||Self-controlled||Control Over Desires|
There is no use trying to produce this fruit in our own strength. It is impossible. It is only when we totally give ourselves over to the God, become His servant, and make Him our Master that His Spirit can manifest this fruit in us. When we admit that we are too weak in our own flesh to produce this fruit, and that only the Spirit can produce it in us, only then will the fruit be manifested in us. We may seemingly produce it for a time, but will always fail to produce it in the long run. Stop trying to produce this fruit in your flesh—it is His fruit, not yours. Only He can produce it in you.
