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.
