The Fruit of the Spirit

Room 151
Teacher: David Moss

One of Paul’s primary personal goals and ministry objectives was to reach greater and greater levels of spiritual maturity and to see all Christians do the same.  In a most profound yet simple definition, the mature and faithful Christian life is a life lived under the direction and power of the Holy Spirit. This understanding is best understood in contrast to its opposite: “living in the flesh,” which is what all humans do naturally because of their sinful nature. The sinful nature produces sinful acts because sinful people are sinful from the start. In great contrast to such sinfulness, the Holy Spirit generates and produces a spiritual nature within newly born-again people of God that leads to godly and spiritual acts. In one of Paul’s letters, he instructs his readers to “walk by the Spirit” and be “led by the Spirit,” who will produce certain definitive characteristics in the lives of true believers. These characteristics (or “fruit”) are seen only in the lives of those who belong to God through faith in Jesus Christ and serve as an outward indicator of true salvation. In the span of a few short verses, Paul lists nine representative characteristics or godly fruit produced by the Holy Spirit in a believer’s life. Paul teaches us that the believer who walks in the Spirit and produces such fruit does not need the Law to produce right attitudes and behaviors – such things arise from within. Come see what God is already doing in your life and will continue to do.
