The Spirit’s Fruit Tree

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

It is interesting to note that the text calls all of these qualities fruit singular, and not fruits plural. It is almost as if they can not be separated one from another; if you have one, you have all; and if you don’t have all, you don’t have the Spirit.

This should cause us to pray and ask the Lord to produce in our lives the whole assortment of fruit that grows on the tree of the Spirit.
