Holy Spirit: Week 3 - Devotion 1

Today’s devotion is another simple one (just like last week’s first devotion). Your Bible study leader may have asked you to choose one of the fruits of the Spirit and write in on a card or some other way of recording it. Grab the card, or whatever you used, look at the “fruit” you chose, and remember why you chose that particular fruit. (Again, if you didn't have the chance in Bible study to select one of the fruits of the Spirit, take a second and read Galatians 5:16-25. Choose one of the fruits the Spirit that you would like to focus on in your life this week.)

Have you had an opportunity to “practice” that fruit? How’s it going? Have you noticed that it’s easier or harder than you thought it might be? 

As you go through this week, ask the Holy Spirit to grow that fruit in your life. Pray that God would lead you to grow to be more and more like Him. 

Oh, and if you want to mess with your Bible study leader, text him or her to let them know that you remembered to look at your card and that you’re praying the Holy Spirit will work to grow this fruit in your life. You’ll make his or her day!
