In this video, Joel Salvisberg and Jón Bjarnastein discuss the Fruit of the Spirit and the Gifts of the Spirit and how it is so important that we, as disciples of Jesus Christ, have these both in our lives.
But unfortunately, too many people only have one without the other. Some people walk out of the Gifts of the Spirit without the Fruit. And some people walk out the Fruit of the Spirit without the Gifts of the Spirit. But in order to be effective as disciples of Jesus, we need to have both in our lives.
What is the Fruit of the Holy Spirit?
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)
What are the Gifts of the Holy Spirit?
There are different kinds of gifts. But they are all given to believers by the same Spirit. There are different ways to serve. But they all come from the same Lord. There are different ways the Spirit works. But the same God is working in all these ways and in all people. The Holy Spirit is given to each of us in a special way. That is for the good of all. To some people the Spirit gives a message of wisdom. To others the same Spirit gives a message of knowledge. To others the same Spirit gives faith. To others that one Spirit gives gifts of healing. To others he gives the power to do miracles. To others he gives the ability to prophesy. To others he gives the ability to tell the spirits apart. To others he gives the ability to speak in different kinds of languages they had not known before. And to still others he gives the ability to explain what was said in those languages. All the gifts are produced by one and the same Spirit. He gives gifts to each person, just as he decides.
1 Corinthians 12:4-1 (NKJV)
