Evidence of the Holy Spirit

But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!
Galatians 5:22‭-‬23

For almost my whole life I could tell you what the fruits of the spirit are. Some of you probably even have a song to sing about them. Knowing them might be easy, but it’s harder to live them out. Here they are listed go through them and read them again while answering to yourself how you think you are doing in that area…

Love

Joy

Peace

Patience

Kindness

Goodness

Faithfulness

Gentleness

Self-Control

Feeling pretty good? I’m sure some of you didnt really do the excersize. Some already knew the answer. Some might just feel awful after that. But my hope is you look not only the moments that you might have failed, but also at the times where you were successful. Where you didnt respond in the flesh. When you loved more than you judged. When you trusted more than you fell apart.

We are not meant to live perfect lives. The Holy Spirit lives in us. And helps us grow and shine Christ in these areas. These fruits of the Spirit are evidence of Christ in us. How amazing is that?

My hope is that you look at the list again and notice where you might need a little more work. But also celebrate where God has grown you. 💜

ART TALK

For this page I had fun pulling out past kits to find filler words, I found the, me in to use. Combined those words with the July stamps and the stickers. Used watercolor for the background.
