The fruit of the Spirit is...

Fruit. It's tasty to eat, important for healthy life, good to see and exciting to watch it form. In Galatians chapter 5, Paul takes this image of healthy fruit and uses it to describe the effect of God's Holy Spirit at work in the life of the Christian:

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
Galatians 5 verses 22-23

So if this is His fruit, how should it manifest itself in my life? Do I have a part to play, and if so, what is it? Why do some of these nine seem to grow readily and others appear to wither on the vine? In this series through the autumn of 2018, we will be working through the list to get to grips with what this familiar list really has to say to each one of us today.

Here are the nine studies, along with MP3's of each sermon so that you can listen again.
