King James Version (KJV)
22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law
I started a new 10 week bible study I know you could never guess the title of this Study ~~the fruits of the spirit
Last night being the first night we were asked when introducing our self's to say which fruit was our favorite and how we like it best .
I like all fruits so this was one off the top of my head that I picked
the orange --some are beautiful and bright in color, some are not as bright kind of dull, then some are just a little green some are bigger than the others, some are sweet, some are sour, some are more juicier than others and then there are some that has hardly no juice at all --Kind of just hard . There are those Orange's that the skin is easy to peel to get to the heart and others have that tougher skin harder to get to the heart of the orange
Comparing the orange to the gifts of the spirit , we need to have the beauty not only on the outside but the inside as well, easy to peel , juicy overflowing with the spirit, joy way down deep in the heart that overflows to the outside , Love that is from the heart to all not just a chosen few GOD loves all not just a few .
Gentleness with each one just as GOD is gentle with us ,forbearance means I need to refrain from deliberately saying or doing something that would hurt others .
We need to be faithful to GOD and each other in truly showing all the fruits.
My prayer that doing this study will allow me to absorb all GOD is showing me in the fruits of the spirit just as he has showed me about the orange that I choose as my fruit. I want the to be the bright and shiny orange that is tender outside have the heart that is juicy with his love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,Meekness, temperance:
