The Fruit of the Spirit is . . . . Kindness
Several asked about the book I read from during the sermon this morning. It was Tortured for Christ, by Richard Wurmbrand.
As I stated in the sermon’s introduction, the fruit of the Spirit is not a to-do list; it is a description of the person who is cooperating with what the Spirit is creating in their heart. I felt that Richard Wurmbrand’s story of the incredible love shown by Christian prisoners toward their former torturers profoundly showed this to be true.
When Christians allow the Spirit to reproduce the life of Christ in them, then there is no force on earth that can stop them. The kindness shown us in the cross of Christ is the same kindness that we express toward friends, family, strangers, and even enemies. God’s kindness can melt even the most resistant and rebellious heart. Let that kindness flow through you to others.
