the fruit of the spirit
Ephesians 5:22-26

The Fruit of the Spirit is an attribute of action. It means living one's life with good morals and motives as well as doing good things for others. Producing the fruit of goodness is a true mark of godliness. It also has an attractive power and draws people to Jesus through the Christ-like actions. 

 

If we want to produce the fruit of the Spirit, we must ask the Holy Spirit to "fill" us each day with fresh power for obedience. We must call upon the Holy Spirit to grow in the 9 Attributes of the Fruit of the Spirit: 

1. Love

2. Joy

3. Peace

4. Patience

5. Kindness

6. Goodness

7. Faithfulness

8. Gentleness

9. Self-Control

Love

1 Corinthians 13:1-3 

"If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love it profits me nothing."
