9 Fruits Of The Holy Spirit
by. Dolvin ≈ October 1, 2008
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control." (Galatians 5:22)
Fruits of the Holy Spirit
Here are the 9 fruits of the Holy Spirit listed one right after the other in a bullet point format:

1. Love
If I had to rank all of the above fruits in their order of possible importance, the quality of love would have to be #1. And this is why it may have been listed as #1 fruit in the above Scripture verse.

To love, to have affection for someone; to like; to be a friend; the love of brothers for each other
One of the main messages that comes through loud and clear from studying our Bible is the extreme importance that God the Father is placing on that everyone learn how to love Him, love ourselves, love one another, and to even go as far as to be able to love our enemies and those who will try and hurt us.

2. Joy
In the rough and tough world we live in with all of the crime, disorder and bad things that can happen to anyone of us at anytime - many Christians have lost a lot of their joy in the Lord as a result of some of the beatings they have taken in this life.

The joy of the Lord can really give you an incredible surge of strength in your own daily walk with God - especially when you have to take on some really tough situations. This is why each Christian should work very closely with the Holy Spirit in not only getting Him to release His joy into your system, but to keep it running through you on a regular and consistent basis.

3. Peace
This is another major quality that we all need operating in our lives, especially with all of the uncertainty of this life and never knowing what is going to happen next.

4. Longsuffering
One of the main definitions of the word longsuffering is that it is referring to patience. And patience is another sorely needed quality in the fast paced world in which we live in today.

Learn to ride and flow with the patience of the Holy Spirit in your daily life and walk with the Lord - and you will then be able to enter into a much more restful and peaceful state within your mind and emotions.

5. Kindness
As a result of more people being impatient, having short fuses and with everyone always being in a hurry - many people have lost the ability to treat others with kindness and respect. A kind word, a kind action to another person can really do wonders for them.

6. Goodness
The Bible says that it is the goodness of God that will lead sinners to repentance and salvation. The quality of goodness is another real powerful quality to have operating through you.

7. Faithfulness
In the times we live in with half of all marriages still ending up in divorce and with many people getting backstabbed in the workplaces with people they thought they could initially trust - this particular quality is one that is really needed in our day and age. This quality is not only needed in our own personal relationship with God, but it is also needed in our personal relationships with our friends and our families.

8. Gentleness
Many men may draw back a bit from this next fruit, which is the quality of gentleness. Whether some of the liberals like it or not, Jesus was incarnated into a human flesh body - but this incarnation was done as a man - fully man and fully God. He was not incarnated into the body of a woman - no matter how any liberal tries to spin this basic fact, with many liberals trying to make God gender neutral.

9. Self-Control
Last, but not certainly least, is the quality of self-control. This one is huge, and I mean huge! Once you start to enter into a true sanctification process with the Lord - expect the Holy Spirit to move in on you very early with this specific quality.

If you don't have God's self-control operating through you - you will have very little victory over such things as bad tempers, judgmental and critical spirits, an unforgiving spirit, and vices such as smoking and the abuse of alcohol.
