His fruit

The fruit of the Spirit

love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.
(Galatians 5)

These are some of the various ways in which the Spirit manifests Himself in us. Just as with any godly fruit in this life, it's not produced by our striving and struggling. These aren't our gifts to Him. Why do we think we can labor to produce what HE produces? These are benefits of Him residing in us, and of us resting in Him!
