What Are the 9 Fruit of the Holy Spirit?

The Holy Spirit is God, so when the Bible talks about fruit of the Spirit it is like talking about God's character.  What are the 9 fruit of the Holy Spirit listed in the Bible?

The Holy Spirit is God, as is God the Father and Jesus Christ God's Son.  Our human minds cannot fully comprehend one God in 3 persons, but that is how God is described in the Bible.

God sent the Holy Spirit to this earth to dwell in the hearts and lives of all true believers in Jesus Christ.  We cannot live the Christian life in our own power.  When God fills us with His Holy Spirit, then His character can begin to flow through our hearts and lives.

In the Bible, the Apostle Paul writes about the fruit of the Holy Spirit in our lives.  Just as a tree bears fruit, so our lives will bear the fruit of the Holy Spirit as we yield to Him.  Here are the 9 fruit of the Holy Spirit that the Apostle Paul writes about in the book of Galatians Chapter 5:

  • Love
  • Joy
  • Peace
  • Patience
  • Kindness
  • Goodness
  • Faithfulness
  • Gentleness
  • Self-control

 

Let us ask God to make His fruit real in our lives as we yield to His Holy Spirit!
