People's Bible Notes for Galatians 5:22


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.

    It exposes the lies we tell each other regarding the sins we commit. No sin is okay and another is wrong. Jehovah abhors all sin regardless of man's acceptance and practices! His doctrines will not change. Be you, drunkard, homosexual, liar, thief, pedophile, murderer or indulgent in other sins, you are against God and can not enter into heaven! People saying otherwise are fools for Satan!

    My brother is going through the same thing that I went through in 2013. Although his addiction is slightly worse than mine was with a different drug, it s all the same. This chapter brings it all into perspective, with my new outlook on life.I hope my brother is able to push through with the help of his family and friends, Amen

    this a very wonderful scripture. nowadays, believers don't bear fruits because sin has centre stage their lives. we are living ungodly lives. how can God reign where there is sin. the is clear verse 25. if we live in the Spirit let us also also walk in the Spirit.
  • D W L
    Revellings? Our people today are full of drunkenness, revellings. We need to be sober
