Scripture Reference:
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law… If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit." [Galatians 5:22-25 KJV]

Just about everyone has experienced a situation where a specific tool was needed yet another was chosen. Kitchen knives are used when a screwdriver is needed, objects other than a hammer are used to drive nails, pliers are used when a particular wrench is needed… you get the picture.

The result is that more often than not the individual ends up having to go and get the RIGHT tool for the job because the one they chose in haste isn't working - and worse, very often damage is done by using the WRONG tool. Additionally, while many people realize that there are tool to use for specific tasks, many have no idea how to USE them properly so as to obtain the results needed.

The same thing happens in the lives of God's people because they are either ignorant of the fact that the Lord has provided us with TOOLS to use in specific situations, or they simply have no idea how to USE the tools given.

"If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit" [Galatians 5:25 KJV]

Notice that we are instructed by the Lord to "walk in the Spirit". The reason for this is because the ONLY way to overcome the natural laws on Earth is to use the SPIRITUAL TOOLS given us. Each tool is designed for a specific task and each one has the power to effectively diffuse any situation and turn any circumstance into a victory for the people of God.

However, before we can choose the right tool we must first recognize that these tools EXIST, and that we have access to them ONLY when we refuse to 'act naturally' and instead 'walk in the Spirit'. Yet many people are unsure of what these tools are or how to access them.

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance…" [Gal 5:22-23]

The scriptures refer to these tools as 'fruit of the spirit' - Yet when you examine each of the fruit closely one can begin to recognize that these 'fruits of the spirit' are actual tools that are designed to be USED by us when various situations or circumstances arise.

For example: "Temperance". Temperance means 'self-control'. Wouldn't you agree that self-control is not a 'result' of something, but rather the MEANS by which a situation is affected. When we USE self-control (temperance) we actually affect the way a situation turns out because we USED self-control.

We can say the same thing about 'Longsuffering': Longsuffering means "patience": Again we can choose to BE patient, or to LOSE our patience. The choice is OURS. And, like self-control patience is NOT the result of something but rather it is the MEANS by which we deal with a situation and when we USE patience we affect the entire situation and how it turns out on our end.

Our natural instinct is to act or react naturally when facing various circumstances or situations - Yet the Word of God instructs us NOT to act 'naturally' but rather to act spiritually - to "walk in the Spirit". And in order to accomplish this we have been given various tools called fruit of the spirit.

As devoted children of our Heavenly Father let us endeavor to become proficient in using the tools given us and show the world that there is a better way - a Spiritual Way - that can bring victory not only into our own lives but also into the lives of everyone who embraces the Living Savior and receives the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness that is available thru faith in Christ.
