Joy for the Journey (2 of 9)
by Ernest Easley
Now for just a few minutes tonight, we're going to pick up where we left off last Sunday night inspecting fruit! Our own fruit! And of course the fruit I am talking about is the fruit of the Spirit. Now keep in mind before we begin reading, that there are not 9 fruits of the Spirit, but rather, this fruit has 9 facets! And every Christian has them, all nine! Remember: it is all of the fruit for all of the saints...
Fruit of the Spirit
by Robert Walker
The first thing that comes to me is there must be upward fruit. Galatians tells us in chapter 5:22 the fruit of the spirit is love, joy and peace.

by Jonathan McLeod

The Secret to Fruitfulness (2 of 4)
by Frank Damazio
Jesus gives us some ''fruit-full'' teaching in John 15. He develops the thought of the fruitful living union between believers and Christ. This is a living union. The vine, the branches, the vine dresser, and the fruit that remains are the topics in this section of Scripture. Vineyards are all around Jerusalem. If this teaching...
Fruit That Proves
by Johnny Hunt
1 Cor. 2:14, ''But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness unto him, neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.'' ''Spiritually discerned'' means to be so gripped in the ways of moral darkness as to be part of it. They were not just in darkness, but darkness was in them...
