If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, God’s spirit is at work in you whether you feel his presence or not. He is constantly conforming Christians to the image of the Savior and the evidence of this transformation is known as the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. (Gal. 5:22-23) These godly character traits are not something we can generate on our own but are produced in us as we yield to the Spirit and walk obediently with Jesus Christ.
We should never underestimate the impact of spiritual fruit. When unbelievers observe how we respond to pressure, temptation, suffering or problems by demonstrating peace rather than anxiety, we bear witness to the beauty of God’s word.
Remember, wherever you are or whatever you do, you can be a powerful witness for Jesus Christ when you walk obediently with the Holy Spirit each day.
