Welcome to the Bible Cafe™ for Living Beyond Yourself: Exploring the Fruit of the Spirit by Beth Moore. If you have been reading along with us, we’ve already covered love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, and faithfulness. This week we looked at the fruit of Gentleness. We’ll be completing our study next week with a look at self-control.
Gentleness: Showing humility, meekness, and a considerate demeanor towards others.
As we study the Fruit of the Spirit we are given a front-row seat with the Holy Spirit Himself being our tour guide. He is helping us understand each of their divine characteristics.
Beth Moore has helped us see these characteristics of the Holy Spirit. In this ninth week, we learned that Gentleness in the Fruit of the Spirit includes submission, humility, and teachability. Scripture reveals how God the Father provides humility and gentleness toward our rebellious behavior.
The Sword of the Spirit is to injure Satan, not the body of Christ. –Living Beyond Yourself: Exploring the Fruit of the Spirit by Beth Moore
