Bear The Fruits Of The Holy Spirit

A Christian is a child of God led and controlled by the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:14). A Christian must walk in love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, faith, meekness, temperance, kindness, holiness, and righteousness, etc. the fruits of the holy spirit are the absolute quality character of a genuine born-again Christian. We must strive to obtain a new character and lifestyle pleasing to God all the days of our lives. In order to maintain the fruit of the spirit alive in us, we must die to sin, deny ourselves, pick up the cross and follow the LORD daily (Romans 8:13-16).

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law’’ Galatians 5:22-23


A Christian should not walk in the darkness working to satisfy the desires of the flesh, but we must walk in the spirit. While we were in the world, we walked in flesh and sin reigned over us but now we have put on Christ and have died to the things of the world and have crucified the flesh. Sin has no dominion over us. We must amend our ways and walk in righteousness before God and avoid all fleshy works.

A Christian is a soldier of Christ and lives to wage a war against the enemy and the battlefield is within his mind. The flesh fights against the spirit and vice versa. Once the flesh overcomes your spirits then you are doomed. You need to humble yourself before God, walk in the spirit, and bind the flesh under the will of the spirit. Apostle Paul said that to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace (Romans 8:5-6).

A Christian must die to self and avoid all the works of the flesh and we must change our ways completely and there should be a total difference between a born-again Christian and a non-believer. You must avoid these following evils according to Galatians 5:19-21;- ‘’Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God’’.

A Christian must not go clubbing, drink alcohol/bears, smoking, plaiting the hair, applying wigs and weaves on the head, applying lipstick, face painting, making tattoos on their body, watch worldly music and movies or become an artist. A Christian must at all times dress modestly covering all their sensitive private body parts; a woman must not put on pants, leggings, shorts, min-skirts, jeans, armless, one-arm dresses, kundi shows, tight skirts and dresses, see-through dresses, excessive jewelry, plastic surgery for beautification; and plastic artificial nails, eyelashes, hips, breasts, teeth, etc., all these are an abomination to the Lord.

In the like manner also Christian men need to dress modestly and decently and should not have stylish haircuts, tattoos, weaving, and braiding hair, balancing and sagging trousers, armless, tight shirts and trousers, shirts printed with obscene or evil graphics and words, etc. There should be a difference between a Christian and a non-Christian (Leviticus 10:10, Jeremiah 10:2, Ezekiel 44:23)

‘’We don’t have such things like Christian celebrities, Christian DJ’s, Christian dancers, Christian comedians, Christian artists, Christian concerts, shows and competitions like the world does. Our only purpose and duty is to serve God and worship Him in truth and spirit dwelling in righteousness and holiness’’.

Once you receive the Holy Spirit, you must completely transform into a new creation fashioned after Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit is the seed of God in you and enables you to bear fruits and that fruit must be self-manifesting in the life of a maturing believer. (Galatians 5:22).

A Christian is a child of God led and controlled by the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:14). A Christian must walk in love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, faith, meekness, temperance, kindness, holiness, and righteousness, etc. the fruits of the holy spirit are the absolute quality character of a genuine born-again Christian. We must strive to obtain a new character and lifestyle pleasing to God all the days of our lives. In order to maintain the fruit of the spirit alive in us, we must die to sin, deny ourselves, pick up the cross and follow the LORD daily (Romans 8:13-16).

“And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.” Luke 9:23

A Christian must abide by all that the word of God says and must be led by the Holy Spirit in all that we do. The Holy Spirit cannot lead you to sin nor can He contradict with the word of God. Therefore if there be any spirit that directs you contrary to the Bible, that kind of spirit is of the devil. The world cannot teach us anything spiritual and we must not copy and brings the world into the church.

“Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them.” Jeremiah10:2


We must be completely converted to Christ, dead to the world, following a new pattern of life which is after godliness; seeking to please God in all our works both in private and public. We should offer our bodies as a living sacrifice before God for him to use us and for the Holy Spirit to dwell in us.

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” Romans 12:1


You no longer own yourself but you were bought with a precious price through the death of our Lord Jesus Christ.


“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” 1 Corinthians 3:16
