Galatians 5:22-23 NLT
But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives:
There is no law against these things!
Have You Been Marked by the Spirit of God?
To Insure that you are Marked here are the 9 Signs to Check For:
- Patience (Endurance)
- Faith and Faithfulness
When you are fully marked all of the 9 fruits will be operating in your life it may sound impossible but believe me when I tell you that it is because it is not by might or power BUT by the Spirit of the Living God YHWH will it be possible.
Now if we look at Matthew 7:17-20 (AMP) it reads:
Every healthy (sound) tree
bears good fruit [worthy of admiration],
but the sickly (decaying, worthless) tree
bears bad (worthless) fruit.
A good (healthy) tree cannot bear bad (worthless) fruit,
nor can a bad (diseased) tree
bear excellent fruit [worthy of admiration]…
Therefore, you will fully know them by their fruits (or their actions NLT).
Now we have just read in Matthew 7 that there are two trees a healthy tree and a sickly decaying, worthless tree, for we know that were ever there is good evil is always trying to go against it because the enemy tries to imitate every good gift from God. Matthew 7 also tells us that a bad tree cannot bear good fruit and a good tree cannot bear bad fruit.
Now we need to examine ourselves and see what kind of fruit we are producing in our lives because if we look at Luke 3:9 it says “Even now the ax of God’s judgment is poised, ready to sever the roots of the trees. Yes, every tree that does not produce good fruit will be chopped down and thrown into the fire.” If we are not producing fruit we are of no use to the Kingdom of God. Jesus also said in John 15:2 NLT “He (the Father) cuts off every branch in Me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit He prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.”
If we open up ourselves and allow the Holy Spirit into every area of our life. And let Him replace our character with His. He will replace our fears with His faith, our anger with His love, our sadness for His Joy, our worry/stress for His peace, our selfishness with His kindness, our impatience for His patience His endurance… Everything negative will be replaced with His good Fruit.
Without the Fruits and the Gifts of the Holy Spirit we wouldn’t have the endurance and faithfulness to fulfill our purpose here on earth or even the faithfulness to complete the calling and assignment that God has given us. For it’s by the Fruit Faithfulness of the Holy Spirit that we are able to be faithful in all that we do for God.
Without the Fruits of the Spirit, the gifts that God has placed on the inside of us would stay locked up because the gifts of the Spirit cannot operate through us without the Fruits of the Spirit first being active in our lives. And our true potential of who we are in Christ would never be known.
When we allow the Fruits of the Holy Spirit to flourish in our lives we became so full of Joy and Peace that NO MATTER what comes up against us we are unmovable, and unshakable our foundation would be so strong that cracks cannot be formed, we NEVER lack peace or joy. This kind of Peace and Joy draws people to us, they are moved by the fact that we are ALWAYS at peace and full of joy. Unsaved people in the world can be drawn to God by His fruits operating in and through our lives.
Blessing & Love To You!
