Chapter 1 – Part 1 / Bible Study

(Book - Walking in the fruit of the spirit by: Gloria Copland)

Taught by: Pastor Tim P. Blaisure – 12/12/21

Foundation Scripture:

Galatians 5:22-23 KJV

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

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


The Fruit of the Spirit are powerful spiritual forces. They are our daily victory. Walking in the fruit of the spirit actually opens the door for us, as believers, to walk in the gifts of the spirit. Love, joy, peace, goodness, and kindness are all supernatural expressions of the character and presence of God who lives inside us. When we yield to them, the Holy Spirit enhances and strengthens them in us to become a river of living water that flows out of us to help bless others!

We can walk in the blessing and wholeness that Jesus provided for us. And each one provides us with an element of divine power that equips us to meet the challenges of life and come through in victory.

These fruit are born into us when we receive Jesus as our Savior and Lord in the new birth.

1 Peter 1:23

Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.

They give us the power to rise above the snares of the devil.

2 Timothy 4:7-8

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:

8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

Without walking in the fruit of the spirit, the gifts of the spirit won’t work.

Galatians 5:6

For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth anything, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

Hebrews 11:6

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Nothing the devil comes up with can defeat you when you’re walking in the fulness of the fruit of the spirit.

Relationship problems the fruit of love and kindness come into effect.

Discouragement with contrary circumstances, faith and patience will get you through.

On the other hand, if one of the fruit is not operating in your life, you cannot be totally successful because it is in that area the enemy will attack and try to defeat you.

The fruit of the spirit will produce a strong foundation for victory.


Walking consistently in the fruit of the spirit.

2 Peter 1:3-11

According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;

7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

9 But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.

10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

These verses help us understand the process by telling us that godliness (the fruit of the spirit) comes through the knowledge of the Lord Jesus.

God has already provided every born-again believer with everything it takes to bear spiritual fruit.

When you abound in the fruit, you enter into the best God has planned for you. Walking in the fruit of the spirit helps you accomplish your earthly assignment. You won’t just get to heaven by the skin of your teeth but will get their with many others and rewards laid up ahead of you.


The gifts of the spirit are exciting, and the church needs them.

1 Corinthians 12:7-10

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;

10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

But unlike the fruit of the spirit, the gifts don’t manifest whenever you want them to. But only as the Holy Spirit wills.

1 Corinthians 12:11

But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

There have been many through time that God used in the gifts of the Holy Spirit who were not successful in allowing the fruit of the spirit to flow in their lives and when temptations and problems came, they fell.
