Today, we’re going to be talking about the third fruit of the Spirit – peace. It’s easy to think that peace would be a constant companion for those who are followers of Jesus, but unfortunately that’s not necessarily the case. There are pressures, problems, and people we deal with every day that can threaten to rob us of our peace. But we must not forget that peace can be found when we are confident that God can relieve our pressures, solve our problems, and handle the people in our lives.
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.
