Galatians 5:22-23

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

Galatians 5:22-23 NKJV

The fruit of the Holy Spirit is simply the character and nature of Jesus.  It is simply a result of abiding with the Lord on a daily basis.  As we fellowship with the Lord and walk with Him daily, we are transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit.  As our minds are renewed through the study of God’s word our lives are transformed.  There is a distinction between those who seek after the Lord and those who seek after the world.  We can’t claim to follow Christ and not reflect the character and nature of who He is.  To be a disciple of Jesus Christ is to become like Him and be filled with His love.  This is what the fruit of the Spirit is all about.
