The Fruit of the Spirit: Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-Control
We become trustworthy, faithful, gentle and self-controlled when we are building a right, growing relationship with God. True intimacy with God is not found in our feelings, works, or even by having the right theology. Rather, true intimacy is our deep affection and knowledge of Christ, practiced by our trust. The fruits of the spirit are a sign of that intimacy.
The Fruit of the Spirit
Scripture tells us that the “Fruit of the Spirit” is an essential part of our Christian growth and that it has the following attributes: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. In this post, Richard shares with us what the Fruit of the Spirit is and how to see it in our daily lives as we walk with Christ.
