The Gifts and Fruits of the Holy Spirit

Overview


The gifts of the Holy Spirit enable virtuous living as Jesus’ disciples: Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Knowledge, Piety and Fear of the Lord [Reverence] (Isaiah 11:2)

There are many ‘fruits’ of the Holy Spirit’s presence and action in us: “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control” (Galatians 5:22-23).
