'FRUIT' OF THE SPIRIT
 
If you take an orange and gently peel it, what kind of juice comes out? …Orange juice.

If you put an orange through a grinder or a juicer what kind of juice comes out? …Orange juice. 

If you take an orange and throw it against the wall, what kind of juice comes out? …Orange juice. 

If you take an orange and cut it with a knife, what comes out? …Orange juice. 

The only thing that can run out of an orange is what is already inside it.

It is the same with us as Christians. If we have cultivated the fruitage of the spirit: love, joy, peace, kindness, goodness, faith, mildness & self control, that will not change- no matter how

people treat us..... If they gently peel away your skin to reveal your sweet side..... what's going to come out? … (Galatians 5:22-24) 
Love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, mildness & self-control. 

If they send you thru a grinder or a juicer by means of trials and tribulations..... what comes out? 

… love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, mildness & self-control. 

If you are slammed up against a wall of opposition, what comes out? …If you have filled yourself with the fruitage of God's spirit, it is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, 
mildness & self control.

If someone attacks you verbally as with a knife.......what comes out? It is what you already have 

inside you! Again- if we've worked hard to cultivate the fruitage of God's spirit, what will come out is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, mildness & self control.

Just as the orange can only produce orange juice, regardless of the situation we are in, what we will 'pour out' is what we've already got stored inside us. 

So if we have worked hard to cultivate the fruitage of God's spirit, what will come out – in any situation – is the fruitage of that spirit

      Who among us would not want to be more loving, joyful, and peaceable?
      Who of us would not like to abound in long-suffering, kindness, and goodness?
      Who of us would not benefit from developing greater faith, mildness, and self-control?
      God’s spirit produces in us fine qualities that benefit us and those with whom we live and serve.
      Cultivating this fruitage is a constant work in progress, since there is no limit to the amount of the spirit’s fruitage that we need and are permitted to produce.
      It produces healthy fruitage in the lives of those who are led by it.
      Galatians 5:22, 23
