Fruit of the Spirit

Fruit of the Spirit

Galatians 5:1-26

Is––All one, singular, and is in present tense.
I want to challenge you to look at the fruit of the Spirit differently.  In stead of looking at each item listed and different fruit,  see it as ONE fruit with 9 different nutrients.
 It is the fruit of the Spirit--one fruit, one Spirit
The word is, is as it says above.

1) Love 26 Agape––affection, benevolence; specially a love-feast:  a feast of charity.  Spoken especially of goodwill toward others
John 15:13 Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.  14 You are my friends, if you do whatsoever I command you.  15 Henceforth I call you not servants, for the servant knows not what his lord does:  but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of My Father I have made known to you.  16 You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain:  that whatsoever you shall ask of The Father in My Name He may give it you.  17 These things I command you, that you love one another.

John 17:26 And I have declared unto them Your Name, and will declare it:  that the love where with You have loved Me may be in them, and I in them.

Romans 13:10 Love works no ill to his neighbor:  therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

1Peter 4:8 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves:  for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

1John 4:7-8 Beloved, let us love one another:  for love is of God; and every one that loves is born of God, and knows God.  He that loves not knows not God, for God is love.

2) Joy 5479 chara calm delight fruition of joy
Matthew 13:44 like a man found a hid treasure in field of great price in a field for joy sold all he had and purchased the field
1John 1:1-4...And these things write we unto you that your joy may be full

3) Peace 1515 eirene (i-rah-nay  quietness
it is the peace of mind, tranquillity, that arises from reconciliation with God and having a sense of divine favor.
Romans 5 1-2 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:  by Whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

4) Long-suffering 3115 fortitude––That strength or firmness of mind which enables a person to encounter danger with coolness and courage or to bear pain or adversity without murmuring, depression or despondency.
Resolute endurance––Characterized by decided purpose.

5) Gentleness 5544––moral excellence, fairness:  an active dealing with others involving equity and justice
Respect for others:  James 2: 1-8

6) Goodness 19 benevolent  Matthew 20: 1-16  Parable of the laborers:  first called bore the heat of the day and majority of the work, while the ones called in the middle or worked one hour––all got paid the same.

The householder said, "Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own?  Is your eye evil, because I am good?"  So the last shall be first, and the first last:  for many be called, but few chosen.

7)  Faith 4102 a firm persuasion, a belief in the truth, a ground for confidence  truth itself  Having confidence in the truth itself--God's Word
How?  2Timothy 2:15 by studying
Matthew 23:23 Jesus got after the scribes and Pharisees calling them hypocrites:  because they paid tithe of mint and anise and cummin but omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith:  these you ought to have done and not leave the other undone.

8) Meekness 4236 gentleness, humility It is a condition of  the mind and the heart which demonstrates gentleness not in weakness but power.  It is a virtue born in strength or character, stemming from confident trust in God not from weakness or fear.
Ephesians 4:1-3  I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord beseech you that you walk worthy of the vocation wherewith you are called, with all lowliness and meekness, with long-suffering, forbearing one another in love; endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

2Timothy 2:24-25 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, in meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; and that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

9) Temperance 1466 self-control;  self-restraint from yielding to desire.

All of these there is NO law.

Romans 12:1-2

Galatians 5 King James Version (KJV)
5 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
2 Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing.
3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.
4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
(Works does not justify)
5 For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.
6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.
7 Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth?
8 This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you.
(What a judge to jury:  "You hear only what I want you to hear!" and the Lord said, " that goes for Me too!")
9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.  (dirt, a little gossip, a little hint of anything off color)
10 I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be.
11 And I, brethren, if I yet preach circumcision, why do I yet suffer persecution? then is the offense of the cross ceased.
12 I would they were even cut off which trouble you.
13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.
16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.  (CJB–'flesh wants what is contrary to the Spirit and the Spirit wants what is contrary to the old nature.')
18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, reveling, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
(The only way to overcome these and the "this is the way I am " attitude is by walking in the Spirit:  the fruit of the Spirit.)
(Challenge to look at the fruit of the Spirit another way:  as one fruit with 9 different nutrients i.e. banana with 12 different nutrients––one fruit with 12 different things in it:  B-6, manganese, v-c, potassium, fiber, protein, magnesium, folate, riboflavin, niacin, v-a, iron.)
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

    called  The Word Of God.

V14    and the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white
    horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean

"He bids them to be as he-goats before the flocks: by which he means that they were to hasten with all confidence. For the he-goats possess more boldness than sheep, and they go before the flock because no fear restrains them. So God takes away every fear of danger from the Jews when he bids them to be as he-goats before the flock; as though he had said that they were no more to fear, lest the Chaldeans should punish them for avowing their wish to return to their own country; for it was a capital offense to speak of their return as long as the Chaldeans ruled over the Jews. But God now promises a change, for he would dissipate the terror by which they had been for a time restrained."  Calvin

Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin[b] is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God[c] in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
5 Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? 6 And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He[d] who now restrains will do so until He[e] is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
