Human digestion should be fruitful :))

Isn’t it GREAT to know Christ and also have the benefits of the “fruit of the Spirit” ?images
You’ve heard the Scripture before…you know…the Scripture from Galatians 5:22-23 about living by the Holy Spirit’s power…

GALATIANS 5:22, 23
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

AHHHH, the natural fruit to digest is LOVE, JOY, PEACE, GENTLENESS, GOODNESS, FAITH, MEEKNESS…
Did you notice the two fruits that were left out of my easy to digest list?images
LONGSUFFERING…ewww not such an easy one is it?
My Bible defines it as patience…
TEMPERANCE…uummmm another toughy for us humans…
My Bible defines it as self-control…

The “fruit of the Spirit” is the spontaneous work of the Holy Spirit in us. The Spirit produces these character traits, which are found in the nature of Christ. They are the by-products of Christ control, and we can’t obtain them by trying to get them. If we want the fruit of the Spirit to grow in us, we must join our lives to His (see John 15:4, 5).
We must know Him, love Him, remember Him, imitate Him. The result will be that we will fulfill the intended purpose of the Law-loving God and man.
We know as humans with human minds, It can be tough to keep a right focus on God when our patience is being tried during a difficult situation. It takes every bit of our “self-control” to make good choices, especially if the suffering is a long period of time…

FRUITFUL OBSERVATION: Let’s remember as God’s children, He equimagesips us with exactly what we need to stay close to Him and live a God-centered and fruit fulfilled life.

Let’s read His Word daily so that we may digest the fruit of the Spirit, which will allow us to grow a fruitful life in Him.images
