As we have looked carefully at each “Fruit of the Spirit” we have been able to see how they all do contribute to the fruitful life that God wants us to enjoy. We have also seen how they are interrelated. The last of the nine is the fruit of self control. With out this evidence of the Holy Spirit in our life none of the other fruit will remain. It is very important that we cultivate this fruit in our lives. In this message we see that self control is at the center of this tension between our flesh and the Spirit of Christ within us.

This week’s sermon looks at an often forgotten fruit of the Spirit. I cannot remember a time that I have prayed with someone who was seeking to cultivate gentleness in his/her life, yet it is the work of the Holy Spirit within us that develops this evidence of Christ in our life. May the Spirit of God use the Word of God to transform our hearts today.

This week we will look at two of the nine fruit of the Spirit together. Kindness and Goodness seem to grow together on the vine which is Christ. We are supplied the grace we need to be both kind and good by the Holy Spirit but we learn what this fruit is from Jesus. The Bible teaches us that our life is about relationships, therefore kindness and goodness are essentials to living the fruitful life.

As we consider how this fruit is produced in our lives, we are going to look several facets of this godly fruit in this message of the continuing series.

Peace seems to be the thing that everyone is pursuing, but never arriving at. We hear about plans for world peace, but every day the news reports of more conflict and war. Listen how you can have a peace that can never be taken.
