SPIRIT WEEK: Fruit Test

Got-FruitThe flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other. (Galatians 5:17)

It’s SPIRIT WEEK 2017 here on GUWG where each day we’re taking a deeeeeep dive into what the Bible says about the Holy Spirit.

Building on what we’ve covered already this week, here’s today’s topic …

THE FRUIT TEST

Our flesh is direct conflict with the Holy Spirit. Who’s winning in your life?

Consider these two rather different lists …

1.  Fruit produced by the flesh (Galatians 5:19-21):

  • hatred
  • jealousy
  • discord
  • idolatry
  • impurity
  • selfish ambition
  • fits of rage
  • drunkenness
  • sexual immorality

2. Fruit produced by the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22):

  • love
  • joy
  • peace
  • patience
  • kindness
  • goodness
  • faithfulness
  • gentleness
  • self-control

Here’s the test: Would the people around you say they see more of List #1 or List #2 in your life? Be honest. Think deeeeeeply. Put yourself in their shoes.
