  4. 4. Fruits of the Holy Spirit St. Paul wrote a letter to the young Christian community in Galatia, in ancient Turkey, around AD 56. In it, he says that if we are led or guided by the Spirit, then we can live “Spirit-filled” lives. He says that the “fruit” of the Spirit in a person’s life is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, trustfulness and self-control. ©

  8. 8. Love When we try to live lives full of love for God and for others, when we try to think of and care for other people, we are allowing the Holy Spirit to be active in our lives. I showed love when ...... ©
  9. 9. Love The ability to unconditionally accept others; to give ourselves in service to others without expecting anything in return. ©
  10. 10. Love There are two types of love the Scriptures tell us we should have. For the sake of simplicity we will call the one “inferior” love and the other a“superior” love. ©
  11. 11. Love 1. Inferior Love This word “love” usually refers to a great fondness or affection for somebody or something. For instance, when a wife is told to love her husband (Titus 2:4), she is supposed to have a fondness for him. ©
  12. 12. Love 2 Superior Love This “love” is the word used in our text to describe the fruit of the Holy Spirit. This love is a willingness to sacrifice yourself for somebody or something because of your relationship to that person or affection for that person. ©
  13. 13. Love The Bible says, “Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.”(1 John 3:16). This verse says our perception of God’s love is that of sacrifice. ©
  14. 14. Love What a person sacrifices for is what they love. This is the fruit of the Spirit. When our love goes beyond a fondness for God into a willingness to sacrifice our all to Him, then we are maturing in the Holy Spirit. ©
  15. 15. Love Luke 6: 35 But love your enemies, do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return. Your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High; for he is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked. ©
  16. 16. Love John 3:16 ‘For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. ©
  17. 17. Love 1 Corinthians 13 :4-7 'Love is always patient and kind; it is never jealous; love is never boastful or conceited; it is never rude or selfish; it does not take offence and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people's sins but delights in the truth; it is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes. Love does not come to an end.' ©
  18. 18. Joy When we try to be full of joy because of God’s goodness to us and when we try to make life happier for others, we are allowing the Holy Spirit to be active in our lives. I showed joy when ...... ©
  19. 19. Joy a deep, inner gladness that comes from your relationship with Jesus Christ. ©
  20. 20. Joy Joy is much deeper than happiness. Happiness is usually produced by happenings. When the happening is over, the happiness subsides. For instance - riding a boat might make someone happy. It does not last long and certainly does not get someone through when troublesome times come. ©
  21. 21. Joy Joy abides deep within the Holy Spirit filled believer even on the worst day of their life. Joy is the ever present work of God as He cheers us no matter what we are going through. The importance of joy is summarized in the statement, “... the joy of the Lord is your strength.” (Nehemiah 8:10b). Sounds important! ©
  22. 22. Joy John 15: 10-11 If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. I have said these things to you so that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete. ©

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. ©
  26. 26. Joy Colossians 3: 16-17 'With gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns and inspired songs to God; and never say or do anything except in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.' ©

  28. 28. Peace an inner harmony and sense of well-being, bringing sense of peace to others, faith that God is in control no matter what happens. ©
  29. 29. Peace Peace is an inner calmness and quietness produced by the Holy Spirit. It means to be serene or at rest in soul, spirit, and heart. “For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. For he that in these things serves Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men. Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.” (Romans 14:17-19). ©
  30. 30. Peace John 14:27 'Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.' ©
  31. 31. Peace Isaiah 32:17 The effect of righteousness will be peace,  and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust for ever. ©

  33. 33. Peace Philemon 4-7 When I remember you in my prayers, I always thank my God because I hear of your love for all the saints and your faith towards the Lord Jesus. I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective when you perceive all the good that we may do for Christ. I have indeed received much joy and encouragement from your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you, my brother. ©
  34. 34. Peace Romans 5:1 Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, ©
  35. 35. Patience When we try to have patience, even in times of hardship, even when things don’t go our way, we are allowing the Holy Spirit to be active in our lives. When we wait for others and try to understand that some people may need more time than we do, we are allowing the Holy Spirit to be active in our lives. I showed patience when ...... ©
  36. 36. Patience Patience or Long suffering means to suffer for a long time! It refers to forbearance, fortitude, longanimity, endurance. This fruit of the Spirit will keep us from quitting and questioning. ©
  37. 37. Patience Philippians 4:6 'There is no need to worry; but if there is anything you need, pray for it, asking God for it with prayer and thanksgiving, and that peace of God, which is so much greater than we can understand, will guard your hearts and your thoughts, in Christ Jesus.' ©
  38. 38. Patience Colossians 3:12-13  As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience. Bear with one another and, if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other; just as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. ©
  39. 39. Patience Ephesians 4:2 with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love ©

  42. 42. Kindness When we try to be kind to those around us, to care for them, to listen to them, we are allowing the Holy Spirit to be active in our lives. I showed kindness when ...... ©
  43. 43. Kindness Kindness or Gentleness is to be “excellent in character and demeanor; to be useful in manners and morals by kindness, easiness, and graciousness.” “Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.” (Psalms 18:35). ©
  44. 44. Kindness “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be ill-treated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.” (James 3:17). “But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children:” (1 Thessalonians 2:7). “And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,” (2 Timothy 2:24). ©
  45. 45. Kindness Colossians 3:12 'You are God's chosen race, his saints; he loves you and you should be clothed in sincere compassion, in kindness and humility, gentleness and patience.‘ ©
  46. 46. Kindness Romans 2:4 Or do you despise the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience? Do you not realize that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? ©
  47. 47. Kindness Romans 11:22 Note then the kindness and the severity of God: severity towards those who have fallen, but God’s kindness towards you, provided you continue in his kindness; otherwise you also will be cut off. ©
  48. 48. Kindness Ephesians 2:6-7 and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness towards us in Christ Jesus. ©
  49. 49. Kindness 2 Peter 1:5-8 For this very reason, you must make every effort to support your faith with goodness, and goodness with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with endurance, and endurance with godliness, and godliness with mutual affection, and mutual affection with love. For if these things are yours and are increasing among you, they keep you from being ineffective and unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. ©
  50. 50. Goodness When we try to put the needs of others first and do what is good for them, we are allowing the Holy Spirit to be active in our lives. I showed goodness when ...... ©
  51. 51. Goodness having the nature of God, able to tell right from wrong, doing good to others and avoid evil. ©
  52. 52. Goodness Goodness is virtue or beneficence. When this fruit of the Holy Spirit is manifest in us, as we mature, our life becomes beneficial to God and others. ©
  53. 53. Goodness “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.” (Acts 10:38). Life is not about us, but life is about how many people benefit from our help. ©
  54. 54. Goodness Isaiah 58:7-8 'Share your food with the hungry and open your homes to the homeless poor. Give clothes to those who have nothing to wear, and do not refuse to help your own relatives. Then my favour will shine on you like the morning sun.' ©

  58. 58. Goodness Ephesians 5:8-11 For once you were darkness, but now in the Lord you are light. Live as children of light— for the fruit of the light is found in all that is good and right and true. Try to find out what is pleasing to the Lord. Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. ©
  59. 59. Trustfulness When those around us know that they can trust us and when we trust others and give them a chance, we are allowing the Holy Spirit to be active in our lives. I showed trustfulness when ...... ©
  60. 60. Trustfulness Trustfulness or Faith is confidence, dependence, trust, or reliance upon Christ, His abilities, and His Word. A person maturing in the Holy Ghost has more and more of this type of faith. Some do not have this. “And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.” (Matthew 13:58). ©
  61. 61. Trustfulness They do not see mighty works in their lives, churches, or neighborhood. As our faith grows, its potential is LIMITLESS. “Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.” (Matthew 21:21). ©
  62. 62. Trustfulness John 17:20-21 'I pray not only for these, but for those also who through their words will believe in me. May they all be one Father, may they be one in us, as you are in me and I am in you, so that the world may believe it was you who sent me.' ©
  63. 63. Trustfulness Matthew 23:3,23-24 therefore, do whatever they teach you and follow it; but do not do as they do, for they do not practise what they teach.   ‘Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint, dill, and cummin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. It is these you ought to have practised without neglecting the others. You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel! ©
  64. 64. Trustfulness Matthew 25:21 His master said to him, “Well done, good and trustworthy slave; you have been trustworthy in a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.” ©
  65. 65. Trustfulness 1 Corinthians 4:1-2,17 Think of us in this way, as servants of Christ and stewards of God’s mysteries. Moreover, it is required of stewards that they should be found trustworthy. For this reason I sent you Timothy, who is my beloved and faithful child in the Lord, to remind you of my ways in Christ Jesus, as I teach them everywhere in every church. ©
  66. 66. Trustfulness Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who has promised is faithful. ©
  67. 67. Gentleness When we try to be gentle with others, with old people, with our younger brothers and sisters and all those with whom we work and live, we are allowing the Holy Spirit to be active in our lives. I showed gentleness when ...... ©
  68. 68. Gentleness Gentleness or Meekness is the inner strength to trust in God to take care of your battles, circumstances, and needs. It is putting all in God’s hands, and leaving it there. (Not fighting your own battles OR DEFENDING YOURSELF.) ©
  69. 69. Gentleness “And Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman. And they said, Hath the LORD indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And the LORD heard it. (Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)” (Numbers 12:1-3). Meekness is humility. ©
  70. 70. Gentleness Matthew 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. ©
  71. 71. Gentleness Ephesians 4:1-2 'I, the prisoner in the Lord, implore you to lead a life worthy of your vocation. Bear with one another charitably, in complete selflessness, gentleness and patience. Do all you can to preserve the unity of the Spirit by the peace that binds you together.' ©
  72. 72. Gentleness Ephesians 4:2-3 with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, making every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. ©
  73. 73. Gentleness Titus 3:1-2 Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarrelling, to be gentle, and to show every courtesy to everyone. ©
  74. 74. Gentleness 1 Corinthians 4:21 What would you prefer? Am I to come to you with a stick, or with love in a spirit of gentleness? ©
  75. 75. Gentleness 1 Timothy 6:1 Let all who are under the yoke of slavery regard their masters as worthy of all honour, so that the name of God and the teaching may not be blasphemed ©
  76. 76. Self-Control When we try to have self-control so that we don’t spoil games or cause trouble at home, when we try to control our temper so that we don’t say things in a moment of anger that hurts others, we are allowing the Holy Spirit to be active in our lives. I showed self-control when ...... ©
  77. 77. Self-Control Temperance is self-control. Holy Spirit-given POWER to control your emotions, body, thought, life, soul, etc. “And every man that strives for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.” (1 Corinthians 9:25). ©
  78. 78. Self-Control 1 Corinthians 6:12  ‘All things are lawful for me’, but not all things are beneficial. ‘All things are lawful for me’, but I will not be dominated by anything. ©
  79. 79. Self-Control 2 Peter 1:5-6 For this very reason, you must make every effort to support your faith with goodness, and goodness with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with endurance, and endurance with godliness, ©
  80. 80. Self-Control Philippians 4:8 'Finally, fill your minds with everything that is true, everything that is noble, everything that is good and pure, everything that we love and honour, and everything that can be thought virtuous or worthy of praise.‘ ©
