Resting in the Fruit of God’s Spirit

Resting in the Fruit of God's Spirit

Why does God offer the fruit of the Spirit to His children?

Not only because His fruit is the best on the free market.

But also because …

He Himself bears this very same fruit, it’s the fruit of His Spirit. And He wants us to rest in it.

God Bears Fruit, Too

God bears this fruit – like an apple tree bears apples, and a mama human bears baby humans, and grizzly bears bear baby bears – because it is Who He is.

What Is God Like?

Do you wonder what God is really like? Look at the fruit He offers us from His own Spirit for our nourishment.

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

Galatians 5:22-23 NKJV

The more I nibble, the more I like the taste. Plate

Do We Rest in His Fruit?

Do we rest in the fruit of His Spirit, in the fruit of who He is and what He is like – who He is at the core of His being?

The more I spend time with Him, the more time I realize I need – and want – to be in His orchard.

What does fruit have to do with rest?

 

We can rest for a season knowing that God’s fruit is ever-bearing in all seasons.

And now that I’ve written ahead, I’m going to His orchard, to rest under His boughs. Red rose
