Without the Holy Spirit bearing spiritual fruit inside of you, you would be powerless. You wouldn't have the endurance and faithfulness to complete the calling that God has given you. You wouldn't even have the self-discipline to study your Bible or pray. Without the Fruits of the Spirit, the gifts that God has hidden inside of you would stay locked away forever. Peace is being content with what God has given us. Be happy with what you have. Patience means not to whine or complain. Remember, patience with your brothers or sisters, no matter how hard that is. Which Fruit? Game They are what God uses to draw people to Himself through you. When they look at you in a time of crisis, and see God's unshakable peace and joy staring back at them through your eyes, they want to know what you know.

Fill our hearts to overflowing with the knowledge of Your Patience. We want people to look at us in their search for Peace and find You. We want that Peace to spill out of our lives all over everyone else’s life so that they can know You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
