What is in your fruit?

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

Did you notice that the “Fruit of the Spirit” is not written as fruits. That’s because these characteristics are all in one fruit. We cannot have one without the other. How can we say we have meekness and temperance but there is no love demonstrated. There is a blemish in that fruit.

If we wondering why we continued to go through the same trial, it’s because the blemish on our fruit was inspected and it did not pass the test.

2 Corinthians 13:5 (NLT) says, “Examine yourselves to see if your faith if genuine. Test yourselves. Surely you know that Jesus Christ is among you; if not you failed the test of genuine faith.”
