Fruit of the Spirit

Home St Marys The Centre Location Contact


The closer we come to Jesus, the more we realise the need to change and grow as Christians.?Like a child trying to keep in step with her parent so we desire to be 'In step with the Spirit of God'. One helpful way of growing as a Christians is to cultivate the fruit of the Spirit as listed in the passage below.


Galatians 5v22-25

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.


Write out the list for a book marker or fridge magnet. Concentrate on just one of these characteristics through the whole day.



"Lord, help me to be gentle as I respond to Bob now."

"Lord, I want to reflect your gentleness as I go for coffee now at work."

"Lord, that wasn't very gentle! How can I redeem this situation?"
