A Holy Spirit Fruit Salad


How do you know if you are living an intentional life with God? What cues or elements are present in someone striving to follow Jesus with their whole life? The 12 fruits of the Holy Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, tolerance, gentleness, faith, modesty, self-control, chastity) are tangible evidence in a person’s life when they are living in the power and presence of Jesus. When these fruits are present, God’s presence is active and moving in our lives. Look for the fruits to see the fullness of God alive in yourself and others.


Holy Spirit,
make my life
a colorful,
vibrant fruit salad
that reveals your glory
and goodness
to those around me!
When I am living
fully alive in you,
these fruits will be present
and active
in my life.
Take me deeper
into your presence.
Transform me
from the inside out
so that I can help
transform the world.


Take some time to reflect on the fruits of the Holy Spirit. What fruits are alive and active in my life? Which ones do I need to develop and strengthen more?
