New Fruit

Yesterday I mentioned the fruit of the Spirit and I’d like to look at that some more. A while back, I went through the different fruits of the Spirit and asked God which one He would work on in me. He nudged me toward “gentleness” and we had an amazing season together working on that. It’s not work that you and I do, by the way. It’s only by the presence and work of the Holy Spirit in us that this good fruit can grow. We can’t make it happen. We must ask Him to change our hearts – and be willing to let Him. In a later season, He and I worked on “self-control.” I would say He is still working that out in me, but things have gotten much better. I’m going to spend some time praying and asking Him which new fruit we will work on in this new season. I will let you know!
