Looking at the list of the fruit of the spirit in the Bible can be intimidating if we think we have to make ourselves behave in those ways. The good news is that all those characteristics are already inside you as a believer and follower of Jesus. You don't have to make yourself do those things because they are now part of who you are. Learn to believe what God already did inside your spirit and then let that fruit out. When we release that fruit of the Spirit from inside us, we are living the life of Christ and releasing it to the hurting world around us.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law. — Galatians 5:22-23 (WEB)
