OPENING PRAYER: Father, cause my life to radiate Your glory.

PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: Leaders should remind members, that the only source and giver of life is the Holy Spirit.

 

MEMORY VERSE: “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.” – Galatians 5:16

BIBLE TEXT: Galatians 5:13-24 (KJV)

13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.

14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

15 But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another.

16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

 

 

 

LESSON INTRODUCTION: We will be focusing on how to produce the fruit of the Holy Spirit as Christians. We receive the Holy Spirit at the point of salvation accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour (Ephesians 1:13-14). Therefore, it is impossible to grow the spirit if you do not belong to Christ.

TEXT REVIEW: GALATIANS 5:19-24

i. The breath of God makes grave to be opened and captives delivered.
ii. The Spirit of God brings quickening from deadness to life.

LESSON OUTLINE ONE:

WHAT IS THE FRUIT?

Galatians 5:22-23 – enumerates the fruit as: Love, joy, peace, goodness, kindness, gentleness, longsuffering, faithfulness, and self-control. They are all Christ-like virtues that we are supposed to exhibit in increasing measures as we relate with God and the people around us – family, work, church, neighbourhood, in public etc. They are not somewhere we put on and put off when we like or not.

LESSON OUTLINE TWO

HOW TO GROW THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT?

  1. Acknowledge and renounce old sin tendencies through prayers and obedience to the word of God. Proverbs 28:13
  2. Know the fruit of the Spirit and pray earnestly for God to help you begin to manifest them.
  3. Look for opportunities to practice them trusting the Holy Spirit to prompt you.
  4. Expect God to use your life relationships and experiences to grow these fruits in you as you cooperate with Him.
  5. Patiently watch them develop, just like what happens to a seed that needs time to grow and mature. 2 Peter 3:18.

ACTIVITY: Ask members whether they are manifesting these fruits.

SUMMARY: If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

 

 

CONCLUSION: Have you any gift? Have you been using them? Are they lost and you want to regain them? Or you want more? Why not talk to God about it?
