In Gal 5:22-23, is where Paul teaches us about the fruit of the Holy Spirit. When we live in the Spirit we begin to exhibit the fruit of the Spirit. Paul brings out what the fruit of the Spirit is. It is love, joy and peace. You notice the last two fruit mentioned in this group are dependent on the first being love. Without love these cannot come. God loved us so much that He is willing to give us these things. Love then develops patience in all situations. It develops kindnessa and goodness. The last two fruit in this group are something that man is not born with and they only come through the Spirit. The Spirit led life then develops faithfulness. Man is very fickle and won’t usually do something without being told. Life in the Spirit will help faithfulness to obey without being told. Life in the Spirit develops gentleness. A person has a gentle disposition. God wants us to be gentle with each other. Maybe we should use the word tolerant. Life in the Spirit does something no other thing can. It develops self control. Self control is something that no man can do outside of the Spirit. Your promises are: Psalm 30:2, 34:19, 55:18, 103:3, Isaiah 53:5, John 8:36, Rom 8:2, 8:32, 1 John 3:8 and 3 Jn 2.
