Here you will find Biblical Scripture (KJV) revealing to you the fruit of The Holy Spirit of God. If we are filled with the Holy Spirit then we will possess these qualities. We will emit these characteristics as Christ did during His life here on Earth. How many of them do you have? How many of them do you need to acquire? I hope that you find yourself oozing with these fruits and pouring these attributes out upon all you meet.

find that you are lacking many of these characterisitcs, you should go
humbly before the Lord and repent of your shortcomings in His sight
and asked to be renewed in His Love.
