The Fruit of the Spirit: kindness

We come now to KINDNESS, the fifth of the nine-part fruit of the Spirit. While most Bible translations use the word ‘kindness’ for this part of the fruit of the Spirit, the Authorized Version uses the word ‘gentleness’, and that broadens the scope of this part of the fruit.

The Fruit of the Spirit: Love

In the last article on the Holy Spirit, we read that He does a deep work in the lives of believers. Whereas for many, the presence of the Spirit is about forms and mannerisms, we said that it is supposed to be more than that. The Holy Spirit “brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an
orchard.” In the next series of articles, we will meditate on the outworking of the deep work of the Spirit in our lives, what the book of Galatians describes as the fruit of the Spirit. The first on that list is LOVE.
