    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

    The fruit of the Spirit these are the things that should grow within us as Christians, these will not be the same as found in the world because they do not have the Spirit.

    Love this is not a emotion but an action of charity which is showing love by doing something, if a brother or sister is in need we help them, if someone who is lost is in need we help them to show them Jesus to aid them coming to Christ, this is love and is what Jesus wants us to do.

    Joy this is not just a happiness but to have a joy that comes deep within in when things are at their worst within our lives. Our joy comes not by what is happening to us but comes thru the Spirit and that fact that we are His.

    Peace the peace have comes from knowing we got Him fighting for us and that we have Him thru everything we go thru in our lives, we are no longer alone and God is bigger then our problems.

    Longsuffering or patience, to follow after the Lord is to be patience because we have to wait on Him. To wait on Him is to truly make Him Lord and shows our full devotion to Him.

    Kindness this is different then being loving because not everyone will need us to show action by helping them, this is things like cheering someone up by smiling at them and asking how they are, jut simply being friendly.

    Goodness this is to seek and follow the Lord and live as He wants is to, for us to follow His path of good.

    Faith, none of this is possible without us having faith in Him. Faith is what gets us in Him where He wants us.
