Fruits of the Spirit

 

A Devotional By Brother Shep

Today, I was wondering if people who don’t know me, when they see me can they tell that I’m a Christian? Paul wrote in Galatians 6:17, “From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.”  Paul had physical scars on his body because he had been beaten, thrown in jail, shipwrecked and all of these scars on his body were visible. You see the scars and they’re there because he served Jesus, here is proof of that.

I serve Him, but I wonder about me. I have not been beaten, thrown in jail, or shipwrecked. I have no physical scars to show because I’m a Christian. So what are the marks on us that people can see? I think we find the marks in Galatians 5:22 where it tells us what are the fruits of the spirit. In other words, what can people see us producing? There are 9 of them. After all there are only 9 of them. Remember that is what Pastor Jimmy Terry told us. They are love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faithfulness, meekness, and temperance. If someone looks at you today, can they see these qualities in you?

This is Brother Shep asking you to think about this.
