God is Love-Day 12

God is Love-Day12-Galatians-5-22-23

But the fruit of the Spirit [the result of His presence within us] is
love [unselfish concern for others],
[inner] peace,
patience [not the ability to wait, but how we act while waiting],
kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.
Galatians 5:22-23 AMP.

Those who belong to Christ Jesus have the Holy Spirit living within them.
The Holy Spirit’s presence within us gives us nine-character traits that show visibly in our daily life.

Live It Out:
If we belong to Christ and have the Holy Spirit within us these nine-character traits should be very visible to the world around us.
We should be loving others unselfishly, be joyful in all circumstances, and have an inner peace that surpasses all understanding.
We should have extreme patience, so much so that it shows best when we are waiting for something, like in a long line or when dealing with a stressful situation.
We should always show kindness to everyone, others should see goodness in our actions as we are gentle with humans and animals.
Our faithfulness to God and His word should be seen by others in the way we act and talk, and we should always exercise self control.
If we are walking in the Spirit daily we will be exhibiting these characteristics automatically and others will notice.
If you are a believer and perhaps are struggling with one or more of these characteristics, pray and ask God to show you why and how you can start being fully fruitful daily.
