Series: Fruit of the Spirit

Trees produce fruit. If you were a tree, what kind of fruit would you produce? That would depend on which of two different influences available to you that you would access. One is the Holy Spirit—God in us. The other is called, in the Bible, “the flesh.” That influence is passed to us from our original parents, Adam and Eve. They were infected with it and have passed down to all their children to this day. Christians need to be continually reminded to seek the fruit of the Spirit in their lives.
