23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. 24 Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
I have been studying & teaching, I have learned what if truly means to be God fearing Christian. Just like raising fruit & fruit on a vine, it takes time to grow & mature it to fully ripe pieces of fruit. Just like the ground has no way to fight back to allow a cultivator to dig & plant the fruit seeds & simply like nature takes its course I take a new believer in the Lord, to say hey God have your way with me, The Lord Jesus is the best cultivar of delicious fruit, the fruit He produce help the lost people of the dying world, they can be loved, have peace, patience , & kindness. The people with no fruit of God’s Holy Spirit don’t know true undying love, or peace, kindness & especially self-control is far from them. This passage as whole says there is no law against the fruits of the Holy Spirit, simply because, the goodness that comes from them is peace & harmony, it like having a tasty apple & a tree & enjoying in cool of the day;
Even when in between spring & summer the loss of the world, show no evidence of the fruits of the Holy Spirit in their lives. For a lost person who doesn’t surrender to the Lord but & has none of the Holy Spirit’s fruit, their peace & joy is temporary. Apart from God, if they do produce any fruit, it rotten faster.
Matthew 7:15 “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.16 You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? 17 So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit.
My dear brothers & sisters, the world needs more people with the fruits of the Holy Spirit so that love of God can be fulfilled & is not such a lawlessness & hate. People keep demanding peace & others to live a righteous life, that can’t happen along we don’t crucify the flesh with its passions and desires. Let us show the fruits of the Lord of Christ to all of God’s Children & help His Kingdom. God bless you, the Lord loves you & so do I. Sam H.
