Fruit Of The Spirit Introduction and Guidelines – #FOSChallenge

The Fruit of The Spirit Challenge is a SEVEN day challenge or buffet. We will read our foundation scripture Galatians 5:22-23 daily, and study a specific Fruit for each day with relevant scriptures.

The plan for each day is detailed below. The #FOSChallenge is not just about reading, I would love for us to share our understanding of what we have read with each other, so as you read, please hash-tag #FOSChallenge if you have twitter. In addition, email with your notes for each day/Fruit of The Spirit, or a summary and I will put it up on this blog page!

Galatians 5 will get a lot of us IN CHECK. We’re quick to say that we’re born again and have the Holy Spirit. But we don’t produce the fruit that reflects the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. We claim to be transformed…let the fruits speak for themselves in our lives. Let’s learn about these amazing fruits. ‘My people perish for lack of knowledge’ (Hosea 4:6). A lot of us are perishing in the spirit and need to head to the A & E which is the Bible – God’s word! It’s time to change– let us forsake the fruits of the flesh so we can have a buffet on the Fruit of the Spirit.

Points that I haven’t touched on in my summary are covered in everyone else’s contributions, OR I have purposely left out to encourage you guys to touch on!

So…Lets Go (Starting 19/11)!

  1. Romans 12:12
    I know I’m quick to say something to god when iv prayed for something and my mind takes over thinking why hasn’t god answered my prayers yet or has he even heard me ? ..”patient in trouble,and keep on praying” if we have no patience we really don’t have faith.. what iv come to realise salvation is all about patience our timing is absolutely rubbish compared to Gods, you can’t even argue that but continue to pray and be patient and know that god will stay true to his promises and will bless us regardless. (Psalm 37:7)

  2. Is this photo available for use in a book? I an writing a Bible study based on Galatians 5:22-23 and would like to use it as an illustration in my book. Thank you so much.
