I am thankful for the fruit of the Spirit. I have been looking at the many slices of that blessed fruit of late, and it seems like the Lord has given me better clarity than I have had before. This process of growing in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ does not progress at a fast-food pace. The best fruit, the sweetest fruit, must be allowed to ripen in the light of the Son. His light beams out of an open Bible and shines truth into the heart of the reader. The energy of that light is what gives the believer the strength and resolve to bear much fruit for the glory of the Lord.
