"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—NIV)
The fruit of the Spirit are the yardstick of the development and maturity of your Christianity. "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control." (Galatians 5:22-23—NIV)
You do not impress people positively with your piety, but the these fruits of the Spirit. The fruit of the Spirit in your life speak more loudly than the words that that come from your mouth. So, if you are looking to become more beautiful, persuasive or influential look to the Spirit of God and the fruit that that only He can produce in your life. You cannot stop the works of the flesh. Only the Holy Spirit can replace them with these fruits.
Make no mistake; it is these fruit that that will change the lives of those around you.
Enjoy God's blessing on your day!
