Tuesday 19th March

But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!

Galatians 5:22-23

 

What a beautiful bunch of fruit this list is! And so much to aspire to, where do we start?! Fruit takes time to grow - there are seasons when the work needs to be done, to get the ground ready, to plant the seeds. Then there is a season when it looks like very little is happening and there are no obvious signs of growth and then one day the start of something delicious begins to appear, but not overnight.

It takes time and effort to produce fruit.

And the same is true of the fruits of the Spirit.

The Spirit is at work in us, but we also need to play our part. So maybe today just pick one quality!

Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you as you read through that list again and speak to you about a fruit you need to develop today. I pray that he might specifically guide you and give you opportunity this day to work on this fruit!
