Devotional

A fruit is the most beautiful part of a plant or tree.
In fact, it is the portion that gives the plant or tree its name.

Likewise, as children of God, the fruit we bear shows the kind of spirit that lives in us. If we bear the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, it shows that the Holy Spirit lives in us.

When you follow the Christ, cooperate with the Holy Spirit, and allow Him to lead you through the Word of God, it becomes natural that you will also bear the fruit of the Spirit.

Remember that He will use people, events, circumstances, difficulties, or challenges to bear the fruit in you. Therefore, don’t complain but instead use every opportunity to let the Holy Spirit work through you, so you can bear His fruit.

Prayer suggestion

▪︎Ask God to lead and guide you through His Spirit to bear His fruit.
