Day 10 of 40 Days of Prayer – Bear the Fruit of the Spirit

Jesus said that a tree is known by the fruit it bears.  As followers of Jesus, the fruit of our lives should bear witness of our identity with Him.  As people of prayer and people who are led by God’s Holy Spirit, we should be conspicuous by the characteristics that describe us. 

Among the attributes of spiritual fruit we are expected to display in our daily walk are these: “love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, goodness, meekness and self-control.”  If we display these attributes consistently, it serves only as evidence of an intimate walk with Jesus, and a closeness to Him that will guide how we pray and prepare us to act when He answers.
