Do We Share The Fruit Of Peace?
Updated: Feb 8
Ladies, the Bible talks about running a race in the Christian vernacular, so using that same language, we know we need a solid character to train for our race. The Holy Spirit has given us the tools to build that solid character called spiritual gifts, talents, and the fruit of the Spirit (NKJV). Let’s use those resources, gifts, and tools to build ourselves up for a tough race and a strong finish!

Women in the military have a long and rich history! Sometimes we believe we have unique
experiences that men typically do not have. As a Christian woman and Veteran, I would say a
specific time is the time of menstruation and childbearing for many women. In the Bible, God
created everything, including Adam and Eve, and he wonderfully fashioned them for each other.
Therefore women have always had distinct roles to play in life from men.

We will cover more ground together as we continue the Spiritual gifts series. For this study, your Bible is your compass so let it be your guide. I am excited to share this information so we can learn and grow together!
So, ladies, do you consistently add fruits to your diet? I am not talking about the occasional fresh
fruit you get when you go out to eat, and I am indeed not chatting about can fruits. Most of us
grew up hearing fruits should be an essential part of our daily diet for various reasons. I am here
to say we should be consuming a different fruit as Christians. Let’s eat the fruit of the Holy Spirit,
which will enrich our spiritual diets in many ways. “Enjoy the fruit of Peace!”
Most of us long for peace! We live in a place and time when there is turmoil in every corner of the world. The stories we hear on the news can sometimes cause us to feel our whole world is devoid of peace forever. However, we should seek to find peace even in the middle of chaotic circumstances. But Believers will only be able to accomplish this through our relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
While we might want to live in peace and harmony, we must understand and accept the peace that is ours to have by the Holy Spirit. This powerful passage in Romans lets us know that we already possess peace if we have been made right with the Father:
Romans 5 New Living Translation (NLT)
Faith Brings Joy
5 Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace[a] with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. 2 Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.
As Christians, we have many opportunities to distribute the fruit of the Holy Spirit throughout our daily walk. Our featured article, “The Fruit of the Holy Spirit – What is peace?” is filled with the sweet taste of scriptures designed to help us understand how the Holy Spirit is with us to guide us through life as children of the Most-High God.
Let’s stay focused on how we can share the fruit of peace, as God will enable us to do that to honor Him!
Question: “The Fruit of the Holy Spirit – What is peace?”
Answer: In Romans 12:18, Paul exhorts, “If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.” What a perfect example of our role in the fruit of the Spirit mentioned in Galatians 5:22-23. We are to submit our wills to God’s leading and our actions to God’s Word, but the actual results are up to Him. Only God can create peace through the work of the Holy Spirit. Especially the peace mentioned in Galatians 5—the peace of a harmonious relationship with God.
Let’s stay focused on sharing the fruit of peace, as God will enable us to do that to honor Him!
