But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23 NKJV.
Not everyone will have the capacity to operate in all the gifts of the Holy Spirit, but everyone will be supplied the grace to manifest and possess all the fruits of the Holy Spirit.
The level of grace you need to operate in spiritual gift is different from the level of grace you need to manifest the fruits of the spirit.
Gifts are always determined by the giver but fruit is determined by the sower. It’s what you sow that you will reap.
Every tree is clearly known by their fruits, not by their leaves. A believer must be clearly known by their fruits and not by their appearance.
Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Matthew 7:17&20.
Practically walking in the fruit of the spirit, is a high class of maturity in the school of spiritual development. It is needed for promotion and uplifting.
This development is a process, you can’t suddenly arrive there in a twinkling of an eye, but you must let each day bring you closer to perfection. We must strive to spring forth the fruit of the spirit.
Living for God’s glory is the greatest achievement we can accomplish with our lives, and of one the way we can live a life that reflects Christ and His glory is by activating the fruit of the spirit. Because, when we bear much fruit, we bring glory to God.
Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. John 15:8.
When God wants to check men on earth that brings glory to His Name, fruits of the spirit are part of the qualities He checks. When the host of heavens are clapping, these are the qualities they check before they clap.
Given enough time, all physical trophies will be trashed by someone else but the fruit of the spirit can never be trashed by anyone else, they are eternal, they speak for you both in time and in eternal, they follow anyone who truly walks in it to eternity and they abide forever.
For every lover of God, the Fruit of the Spirit should be visibly evident in one’s life. It should be the foundation stone for every disciple in order to be used effectively in the body of Christ.
For a life of dominion to find expression in our lives and if we must let our lives radiate the glory of God, we must abide by the principles that govern the laws of the spirit and which fruit of the spirit is one of them.
The fruit of the spirit is essential in every believer’s life, it is needed for flying high, it is needed for dominion. Activate it today and start reflecting the glory of God.
God Bless You!
