What Are the Fruits of the Spirit?

Join us on the latest episode of “Free for the Fruit,” titled "FFTF 5.2 - What are the Fruits of the Holy Spirit?" where our host, Jill Simons, deep dives into the essential elements of a spiritually fulfilled life. If you've ever felt that despite being a faithful Christian, you're lacking joy, patience, kindness, or self-control, this episode is tailored for you!

In this enlightening session, Jill eloquently uses Galatians 5:22-23 as her guide to explore the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit, including love, joy, peace, patience, generosity, faithfulness, kindness, gentleness, and self-control. Prepare to understand these not as rewards for exemplary performance but as gifts that signify the Holy Spirit's active presence in our lives.

Jill sheds light on a common misconception among many Christians—that the fruits of the Holy Spirit are prizes to be won through personal effort. With engaging anecdotes and relatable examples, she illustrates how this misunderstanding shifts our focus from divine grace to self-reliance, often leading to frustration and spiritual stagnation.

The episode is not just about identifying these spiritual shortcomings but also offers a transformative new perspective. Jill encourages listeners to realign their efforts towards understanding and embracing these fruits as freely given gifts, not as accomplishments. This realignment can significantly change how we experience our spiritual journey, making it richer and more fulfilling.
