A Blooming Faith

…the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Galatians 5:22 NRSV

If your faith were a seed, what kind of fruit would your seed bear? Is it fruit that gives mouthfuls of sweetness? Is it fruit that carries life-sustaining nutrients? Or is it the kind of fruit that leaves a bitter aftertaste?

The seed of faith is designed to take root in the soul and grow until love blossoms, and the fruits of the Spirit are evident. That tells me the fruit that comes from faith in Jesus Christ is the best fruit of all!

Soon winter will begin giving way to Spring. The seeds hidden in the earth will send green shoots up through the dirt. There is amazing potential in those seeds to blossom into beautiful flowers and delicious nourishing fruit.

Recognizing the potential that’s in the seed of faith planted within us, let’s start preparing for our spiritual springtime. That means nurturing that seed, and letting God grow it into the kind of plant that blossoms with love! After all, when properly tended, a single seed can bear the fruit of the Spirit, which is the fruit of love!
