What is the importance of the fruit of the Spirit?
Also question is, what is the purpose of the fruits of the spirit?
The Fruit of the Holy Spirit is a biblical term that sums up nine attributes of a person or community living in accord with the Holy Spirit, according to chapter 5 of the Epistle to the Galatians: "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Secondly, why is it called the Fruit of the Spirit and not fruits? "Fruit of the Spirit" Not "Fruits." So this means that when we begin to read what the fruit of the Spirit is, Paul is not naming different kinds of fruit that the Spirit gives, instead he is describing the different characteristics of the grace that the Spirit is working in you.
Correspondingly, how do we use the fruits of the Holy Spirit?
If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing."
