Today’s Word of Promise
Many days a week, I do a 4-mile aerobic walk. It takes me one hour. I listen to my Word of Promise Bible while I walk.
Today I listened to the entire book of Galatians.
The part that stood out to me in that passage is this:
But 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
I’m focusing today on the verb “IS”. Do you know what “IS” is? Well, sure, it’s a lot of things. But for this specific post, it’s SINGULAR. That’s right, the verses do not say that the fruits of the Spirit are. What they say is that the fruit of the Spirit is. That means that if you are filled with the Holy Spirit, then you can count on a well of love, joy, peace, longsuffering (read: patience), goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control.
They’re right there for you. One big singular package just ready for you to unopen it and embrace it.
May God bless you and bless your day. Find a word of God speak to you today.

I had a friend that called the fruit of the spirit and summed up the verse as a “fruit salad!” I always liked that analogy because the individual fruit is very good, but put together, you have something better than the sum of the originals..
Thanks for the lovely reminder. Featured this and you on my personal Facebook today.
