The Fruits of the Spirit are Part of God's Salvation

Bible Verse 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.

Commentary:

One of the amazing things about these gifts is that all the "fruits of the spirit" stem from a single source. That source is Christ Jesus our Lord. This means that they are not only all present in the life of the believer, but we really cannot manifest one without manifesting the others. For example, you can't be loving unless you are also kind. You cannot express gentleness without loving kindness, self-control, goodness and joy. In order to have peace from God, we must also have faithfulness. Faithfulness in turn produces joy along with self-control, which encourages kindness. Kindness itself stems from goodness and love. In other words, the fruits of the spirit go hand in hand with salvation and cannot be separated from one another.

Which means we cannot really experience one without experiencing the others to some degree, why? Because they are all part of God's love and work in us! They are all gifts, given to us as a result of our faith in Christ. And lastly, we see all these gifts in the character of God! God in His love and mercy toward us, while we were sinners, Christ died for us! God loves us so much, and has so much joy, kindness and goodness toward us, that while we were enemies of God, at enmity with Him, Jesus died for us. Jesus the eternal God of Heaven, the Author of creation Himself stepped out of eternity and took on humanity, for no other purpose, than to die for us! He did this that through faith in Him we could have eternal life and experience the fruits of the spirit by which we spread the Gospel of Christ to those who are lost.
