This Fruit Cannot Be Faked.

Key Verse

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law” (Galatians 5:22-23).

Text — Galatians 5:22-26


According to Dallas Willard, “The fruit of the Spirit … gives a sure sign of transformed character. When our deepest attitudes and dispositions are those of Jesus, it is because we have learned to let the Spirit foster his life in us.” People are easily identified by their character, groups and beliefs. A believer’s identity is in Christ and his or her life is led by the Spirit, not controlled by the flesh. Believers were first called Christians in Antioch because they behaved like Christ.

Only saved people can manifest the fruit of the Spirit. It cannot be faked. The saved are able to love selflessly, be meek, gentle and good, endure, and have peace and joy in conflict times. The manifestation of the fruit of the Spirit differentiates a believer from the world. To have the nine components of the fruit of the Spirit, you must invite Jesus into your life. You must acknowledge your sins, confess and forsake them, ask God for forgiveness, and believe in Jesus as your Lord and Saviour.


Manifest the fruit of the Spirit


The fruit proves your Christian profession.
