What are the Fruits of the Holy Spirit?

The Bible says there are 8 fruits of the Holy Spirit. What are they?

The Holy Spirit is God. The Holy Spirit is given to us by God as believers when we receive Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord.  The Holy Spirit lives in us as we yield control of our lives to Him.

God then brings the life of God into our lives as we yield to Christ; and just as a plant bears fruit, so the Holy Spirit bears the life of God in our lives.

Here are the 8 fruits of the Holy Spirit that the Bible lists and can be manifest in our lives:

  • Love
  • Joy
  • Peace
  • Patience
  • Kindness
  • Faithfulness
  • Gentleness
  • Self-Control

Would it not be wonderful to have all these qualities in our lives? We can through the indwelling power of God's Holy Spirit!  Thank you God for Your wonderful gift!
