Galatians 5:22-23King James Version (KJV) 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Ellicott's Commentry(16) Ye shall know them by their fruits.—The question, What are the fruits? is not directly answered. Those who attach most importance to the ethical side of religion, see in them the practical outcome of doctrine in life, character, and deeds. Others, who live in a constant dread of heresy, dwell on doctrines rather than acts as the “fruits” by which we are to discern the false teachers and the true. Good works, they say, may be but the sheep’s clothing that hides the heretic wolf. The analogy of Scriptural language, and even of that of most theologians, the familiar phrases which speak of good works as the fruits of faith and the like, are, it is believed, entirely in favour of the former view. Still more decisive are the “fruits meet for repentance” of Matthew 3:8. We are to judge of the teaching of those who claim authority by the test of the measure in which, in the long-run, it promotes purity, peace, and holiness.Since the BIble is clear that we will know true saints true believers by their FRUIT, it is important to take note of those scriptural words and use them discern by them and do not alter them for friendships or favor. FRUIT must be kept fresh through the Word of GOD. And remembered in times of pressure. Practice the Fruit of the Spirit. Walk the Fruit of the Spirit. Live the Fruit of the Spirit. That's the only way that I will know you. That's the only way you will know me. JESUS paid a high price for us to walk and live in the Fruit of HIS Spirit. Make the Fruit of the Spirit your lifestyle.
