Today's Verse : Galatians 5:22-23

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things, there is no law. — Galatians 5:22-23


Where the Holy Spirit lives, the human character is changed and spiritual fruit can be seen. Certainly this maturity isn't found overnight! It is, however, noticeable over the long haul of life. What fruit is the Spirit bearing in your life? In what ways have you matured? In what areas do you want the Spirit to exercise greater control? Why not take a moment and consciously yield those areas in which you struggle to him now, as you pray?


Almighty and ever-present Father, thank you for empowering positive changes in my life as I seek to be more like Jesus. Please bring to full maturity the fruit the Holy Spirit is growing in my life. You know very well that I continue to struggle with __ in my life. I intentionally turn over that part of my life to your Spirit to redeem and fully sanctify. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.

  1. Amen and Amen. The visibility of the fruit of the spirit could be a quick pointer to the state of our koinonia. The more vibrant and intimate our love relationship is with God, the more influence His spirit has over our lives, and the less of the work of flesh is given place to. God help us all.
