The Fruit of the Spirit: Patience, Kindness, Goodness

Preacher:
Passage: Galatians 5:22–23

We want to get really practical about what the Spirit of God produces in us. It is a singular fruit—perhaps summarized as Christ-likeness, that the Spirit produces. Sin, manifested by the works of the flesh is often a specialized expression in our lives. We each have different patterns of sinfulness that we fall into. The fruit of the Spirit is full-orbed. We cannot say, “Your specialization is goodness while mine is patience.”  The totality of this fruit should be manifested in our lives. It is produced by the Spirit as we dwell and abide in Christ and are filled by Him.

We learned last week that if I’m walking with Christ, I must be growing in my love for God and for people, growing in the depth of joy in my heart, and growing in being at peace in all circumstances.

This week we will consider what patience, (endurance), kindness and goodness should look like in our lives.
