DEVOTION



              Fruit of the Spirit
Galations 5:22-23 reads: "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and selfcontrol." 
...........KJV .....love,joy,peace,long suffering, gentlenesss, goodness, faith, meakness, and temperance."

The fruit of the Spirit is what believers in Jesus
produce because the Holy Spirit Lives within their 
heart.

Jesus performed HIS ministry in the power of the Spirit so the fruit of the Spirit poured from
Jesus regularly.

things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves

The zeal of the Lord of host will perform this. 

PATIENCE: 1Timothy 1:15-17: This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that "Christ Jesus came unto the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. 16) Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.
