The next fruit of the Spirit we are going to discuss is the fruit of faithfulness. Every one of us is given opportunities in this life to find God’s will and do God’s work. We are given opportunities to make a difference in the lives of other people, using the gifts and talents God has given us. In other words, we are given this life in order to be faithful to our Heavenly Father and the work He is calling us to do for His Kingdom. In Matthew 25, Jesus told a parable that illustrates the importance of faithfulness, and this is a parable we can all learn from in regards to how we should be faithful with our lives and our gifts.
In this series, we are going to take a closer look at the fruit of the Spirit we should be bearing as followers of Christ. Now, you might be asking, “Why does God want us to bear fruit?” He wants us to bear fruit because He wants our lives to be tasty. In other words, He wants us to live lives that are so attractive that people are drawn to us like a hungry man is drawn to a plate of good food. The Lord wants us to live lives that are both good to others and good for others, and we do that by living according to the Fruit of the Spirit.
