What are the fruits of the Spirit.

Paul talked about the fruit of the Spirit in the lives of believers.How often do we as believers truly demnstrate the fruits of the Spirit in our daily lives.We can move powerfully in the gifts of the Spirit but without the fruit we are always unbalanced 1 Corinthians 13.Let us not critisize one another and grieve our fathers heart.Let us allow God to change our hearst so we can truly imitate His Dearly Beloved Son.Jesus truly is Lord.

The Gifts of the Spirit is the power and knowledge of Jesus,
The fruit of the Spirit is the Character of Jesus.
When we have produced the character of Jesus,, the power will be more effective in our lives.

The Fruit in John 15: 1--8 ranges from "No fruit" to "Much fruit"
As we grow closer to the Lord and live for Him we will produce much fruit and become more and more like Jesus.
The fruit in John 15: 1--8, Is,
" Producing the Unity, character and power of Jesus by our relationship and union with the living Christ".

The fruit of the spirit is in Galations 5:22-26
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.

Apart from Galatians 5:22-26 what about...

James 1:27
Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

Now THAT is real fruit that lasts...:smile_anim::jesus-cross:

Sister, I don't think that would fall under the fruit of the spirit. Although it is a great thing to do.
The fruit of the spirit is what one receives when they become born again. It is the Identification of the true believer! Galatians 5:22-26 is what I call the evidence of the indwelling spirit in an individual who is truly saved.

21 Wherefore putting away all filthiness and
overflowing of wickedness, receive with meekness the implanted word,
which is able to save your souls.
22 But be ye doers of the word, and not
hearers only, deluding your own selves.
23 For if any one is a hearer of the
word and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a
mirror:
24 for he beholdeth himself, and goeth away, and straightway
forgetteth what manner of man he was.
25 But he that looketh into the
perfect law, the law of liberty, and so continueth, being not a hearer that
forgetteth but a doer that worketh, this man shall be blessed in his doing.
26 If any man thinketh himself to be religious, while he bridleth not his
tongue but deceiveth his heart, this man’s religion is vain.
27 Pure religion
and undefiled before our God and Father is this, to visit the fatherless and
widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.

Actually these are 'fruits of the fruits'? If I may put it that way? They fit into the areas of love and faithfulness, self control. That being the case they do fit into the fruits of the Spirit being a direct result of the fruits.

What does the scripture say is the fruit of the spirit? It is obvious! I do not know of any other scripture where it names them specifically other than Galation 5:22-26. We can say a lot of things are a result of the fruit of the spirit in the believers life but this is the evident of such.

Galatians 5:22
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

Galatians says " Fruit " .... not fruits so what is the difference.?


I think when we are talking" fruits " that it means our Christian Character such as ...... boldness, humility, contentment , compassion , child like faith , courage , dicipline , honesty , and the list can go on .

What do you all think ?

When we become born again the Holy Spirit produces character traits in us that can is Found in Christ Jesus and it is a gift not to confused with the gifts of the Holy Spirit, but the gift, singular. They are the by product of Christ in us and controlled by the Holy Spirit. A person who exhibits the fruit reveals Christ in them.

Have you ever heard the term being a fruit inspector. Well the bible tells us we can know if one is a Christian by the fruit they bear and it will be the fruit of the Holy Spirit.

My Grandfather was a fruit and vegetable peddler all of his life and when I was just a young boy he would take me down at the state farmers market early in the morning before day break and we would drive up and down the Isles of the market and every once and a while he would stop and get out and look at the fruit and he would do that time after time and I would ask him what he was doing and he said he was inspecting the fruit and he would only buy the good fruit. I learned a valuable object lesson that day and still use it today.

By the way, Congratulations on being a new moderator!

Thanks Frank... Yes that of course was a valuable lesson. And we can apply it to CHristians . Of course we have to be careful and be led by the Holy Spirit . But you can actually tell by their fruit .... the way they live , if they go to church on Sun and live like you know who on Mon to Sat. :D
