Galatians 5:22-23 Fruit of the Spirit Bible Poster

POP QUIZ: What is the difference between the ‘Fruit of the Spirit’ and ‘Gifts of the Spirit’?

  • Fruit of the Spirit ~ grows from the inside out (as the character of Jesus is formed in us);
  • Gifts of the Spirit ~ are like Christmas ornaments – they can be put ON the tree; they can also be taken OFF. They are gifts.
  • From God’s point of view, which is the more important?

FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT ~ BIBLE VERSES

Galatians 5:22-23  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Ephesians 5:9  For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth.

Philippians 1:11  Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

Colossians 1:10  That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God.

John 15:1-5  I am the true vine and my Father is the gardener. Every branch in me that bears not fruit he takes away: and every branch that bears fruit, he purges it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now you are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can you, except you abide in me. I am the vine, you are the branches. He that abides in me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit; for without me ye can do nothing.

THINK SPOT :  Have you ever seen a fruit tree straining to produce fruit? No, of course not. It is something that happens naturally. “Abide in me, and I in you,” Jesus said. “As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in Me.” The fruit of the Spirit ~ the character of Jesus ~ is also produced naturally in us as we continually submit to the Lord Jesus and love Him ~ abide in HimJohn 15:4

FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT ~ LEARN TO DRAW ~ FREE PRINTABLE

Fruit of the Spirit – learn to draw doodles  (1arthouse):

A note from the margin of my Bible from a sermon I heard goodness knows when: The fruit of the Spirit is ONE fruit, but with different facets (like a diamond), colours, flavours all rolled into one. If one grows, they all grow. Godly character traits can only be developed through adversity. We may admire and want them, but we have to learn them the hard way. For example, the kind of love that gives freely of itself, at great cost to itself, can only be developed through situations that require sacrificial love; or by being treated unjustly and learn to suffer-long (which is the meaning of patience) the one who treats us unfairly, as we submit to Christ and draw from His patience. WARNING: So be careful if you pray for patience!  :)

Oils of life  (practicalpages) ‘I need to come to the Throne of God daily for fresh supplies of the oils of the Holy Spirit. I must confess my trespasses; forgive others their offences. I must seek Him for His mercy and grace. His very presence pours precious and gentle oils into my life; fills my life with perfect, sweet aromas, trickles smooth oils of patience, kindness, politeness, and love. I can then, in turn, pour out life, service, and holy acts of love towards everyone…’
