Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, self control.There is a difference between thee fruits of the Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit.  The gifts are exactly that – gifts. They cannot be bought, earned or deserved. They are given us solely by the grace and choice of God. When we come into God’s family through His Son, Jesus Christ, we are implanted with the seeds of the fruit of His Holy Spirit. The seeds of these fruits must be fertilized, watered, pruned, grafted and used. They are grafted to the main vine, Jesus. They are fertilized through the written Word of God, the Holy Bible. They are watered by the Holy Spirit through prayer and worship. As we learn to flow in the fruits they grow and ripen. From time to time they need pruning. As we walk through the pruning trials we confess our sins and God cleans the weeds implanted through our sins. Let us be sure to take care of the fruits of God’s Spirit planted within us.
