Fruit of the Spirit

Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.

Have you heard of the “Fruit of the Spirit?” Galatians 5:22-23 list nine characteristics of a Holy Spirit-filled life: “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” When you look at the life of Jesus, you see every one of these qualities. If you’ll devote yourself to Him, you’ll look like He does! If you’re walking close to the Lord, you’ll see the Fruit of the Spirit in your own life; and these traits will help you become an effective witness for Jesus! Now, you may thinking, “how can I share the Gospel using the Fruit of the Spirit?” Well, think each one and use them in your actions and speech. Let your intentions be out of love, speak with joy, share His peace and be patient with those you share with. For more tips and resources to help you share the Gospel, visit our website at
