Today I will be master of my emotions Part 2

Galatians 5:22-23
“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.”

Jesus said, “By their fruit you will recognize them.” How is your fruit? If you were to literally take a fruit temperature check how would you do? I think that is what we need to realize is we need to posses these fruits of the Holy Spirit and this is how we will be recognized in Heaven. I know that my worst fear is to get to Heaven and have Jesus say, “I never knew you.”

So today say this prayer with me:
“Father in heaven, please help me to produce the fruits of the spirit, guide me in my ways and make my paths straight. Let me always be directed by love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Help me to reflect Your image inside me when I speak to other people. I thank You for it, in Jesus name.”

Good post. One of the best ways to produce good fruit is to digest good seeds. What I mean is this is why applying the Bible is so crucial. It doesn't matter if a person knows a lot about fruit if they don't actually do anything about it. The more we chew on the Bible, digest God's truth, and allow others to sharpen us the more fruitful we can be.
