Fruit of the Spirit

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law." -Galatians 5:22-23

The outpouring of Jesus with us shows up in all areas of our lives. There's an amazing richness to life when you stand with God's Son. After hard work, toil, storms, rain, and then waiting (so much waiting!), you will finally see Christ glowing just a little bit in your attitude and actions. God is so patient with us, helping us over time, as He tries to get us to bear fruit. Some seasons will be more fruitful, some seasons will be less fruitful depending on how much we lean on our Father. However, at the end of our days after a lifetime of cultivating our souls, when God welcomes us home and says "Well done, good and faithful servant," we can be sure that we will reap the full harvest of the Spirit.
