- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
5:22 Love - The root of all the rest. Gentleness - Toward all men; ignorant and wicked men in particular. Goodness - The Greek word means all that is benign, soft, winning, tender, either in temper or behaviour.
Ga 5:22,23 But the fruit of the Spirit. The fruits named are not our fruits, but of the Spirit in us. If we bear these fruits we show that we have the Spirit. There are four groups: Love. The Christian grace which works out the whole law. Joy, peace. The normal state of the Christian. Longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness. The graces which relate to others. Temperance. Or self-control. The last fruit looks to oneself. It implies not only abstinence from injurious drinks and food, but control of the temper, the tongue, the desires, the passion for money or power.

I thank God for ths script, as the bible says all scriptures is God breathed and is useful for correcting, training, teaching and rebuking in righteousness. So that we may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

The fruit is "one fruit." Christ imparts His character into a believer's life. We are then to grow and mature His character in our lives as we live close to Him and His word. We can't pick and chose which one we want to mature. We are to mature all nine of the fruit--through the power of the Holy Spirit working in us.

To me this is one of the best verses for us CHRISTIANS to have in our memory. Sad my memory isn't as good as it used to be, but I go back to this verse very often to keep myself reminded of one of the ways to honour my LORD in my daily walk. I LOVE all scripture that gives me instructions on how to live for my LORD AND Saviour JESUS CHRIST. PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME.

The above quote is most important in our days as people of the MOST HIGH GOD. It is not only a free gift from God, but also a must have for all believers in this century. It is the reality of the pomegranates that God made Moses command the craftsmen to weaving together with a bell in Aaron's garment according to exodus 28 :33

My Background Is The Fruit of the Spirit

Galatians 5:22 is a description of a real christian,it is easy to say i am a christian but to look like a real christian you must have a characteristic or a gift from the holy spirit as what in Galatians 5:22 has stated.
