Habits Of A Person With The Holy Spirit
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
Our habits determine the kind of reward we get in life there is no way one will not reap what they sow in this life.
7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.
What habits are you displaying?
What are the things you are showing to people?
If people see you can they call you a Christian?
What are the things that are influencing your habits?
Are your habits similar to that of Christ?
Do you have the Holy Spirit that produces good fruits in you?
The good fruit of the Spirit is not just what you display because you are a Christian, they are not natural, and they are backed by the power of God.
Do you have fear and lie?
Do you have an anger issue?
To become what God wants you to be you need a change of habit. The habits that God wants you and me to have comes from the Holy Spirit.
8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
The Holy Spirit is the factor that can change our habits to a powerful and extraordinary one.
The fruits of the Spirit must be seen in every believer.
Are you manifesting the fruits of the Spirit?
Are these fruits of the spirit your habits?
What are the habits of the person who has the Holy Spirit
When you see people with the Holy Spirit you will see that they show love to everyone. When we hear about love the first thing that comes to our mind is relationships or romance. We have mixed love with lust. Do you see love as lust? It is wrong!
Love is a powerful fruit of the Spirit that we must carry in us all the time. The nature of God is love.
1 John 4:8
8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
The more we study to know what God is the more we know that God is love. Everything about God is love
31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
Love is part of the commandments. We should not show love only when things are going fine or when people love us. This is a habit that Jesus wants us to build in ourselves by the power of the Holy Spirit. When people hate us we should love them.
44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
We should never stop loving. This is who we are. This is what Christ has called to show the world. Let your life manifest this fruit and let it become part of you. Make it a habit to let people know your habit is not just a natural one but backed by the power of God.
One of the things people believe about joy is that it is represented by the smile on the face or by the laughter from people. Joy is far more than the facial expressions. True joy is not determined by the circumstances of life. The source of true joy is greater than the comedy we listen to, the gift we receive from people, or the jobs we get.
God is our source of joy through Christ, the joy of the Lord gives strength that we need to carry on in this crooked world. The joy of the Lord is what we need to keep smiling and stay happy in this tragic world. This joy comes from within and is not determined by the situations of life this is why we need the Holy Spirit even in a year like this with all the challenges that we are all facing.
The joy given by the spirit must overflow in your life. You must rejoice always under no circumstances should we stop rejoicing because our joy comes from the Lord.
You will see people that are filled with the Holy Spirit being joyful at all times. It has become their habit.
The first is you have peace and the second is making peace with everyone or living in peace with everyone. Peace is something that God has always been giving to his people.
Exodus 14: 14
14 The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”
God will not allow anything that will cause you trouble to come near you. There will be peace in you, your body, spirit, and soul will fill the peace of the Lord. It is the peace that comes with the presence of God.
7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
This peace is not limited to you it is extended to the people around you. When you got the peace in you it starts oozing from your life and the people around can feel it it becomes your habit. You start making peace with people, you start living in love and harmony with people.
This is the time to look at your life… can people see you and feel the peace of God in you?
Is peace part of your habit?
Sometimes you hear people talk about Christians being patient at everything where they ought to give up they continue enduring. These people do not know that the ability is from the Holy Spirit.
Long-suffering otherwise know as forbearance or endurance is one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit that helps to grow the habit of patience.
Having patience is not what is common in our society today, people are easily frustrated. The inability to exercise patients or forbear things has sent some into depression.
As a Christian, you are faced with many unbearable things. We are judged by others, rejected in some cases but the Spirit of the Lord keeps bearing that fruit of long-suffering in us so that we can stand strong in the Lord.
4 perseverance, character; and character, hope.
When we are faced with persecutions and we endure it because of our character or habit when people see this they know it is the power of God that is working in us. It is not easy to endure in the times we find ourselves in this world but the Spirit of God has the power to make it possible for us
32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
To be kind is not only about giving money to people or supplying the needs of the needy. Kindness encompasses forgiveness, praying for one another, and also showing love to everyone.
The display of kindness is majorly through love when love exists in one’s life it makes it possible for one to be kind. This what you see in the lives who have the Holy Spirit it is easy for them to be kind because the Holy Spirit made it their habit.
Are you kind to the people around you?
Do you forgive those that have done bad to you?
Do you pray for those who hate you?
Let the people see Christ in you.
People with the Holy Spirit are good people. It is the ability to do right. To be a good person is not limited to helping people that is kindness. To be good means to accept what is right, to love justice, to not show favoritism, and to obey the laws of God.
8 He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.
What are the good things that we should do?
What are the right things we should do?
We should do justly, we should love mercy and we should have humility. We must make this a habit. Doing good must be part of us.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
Faith gives birth to power, without faith no one can become a Christ-follower. Accepting Christ requires faith. Believing that Christ died for our sin and believing in that Kingdom of God in our heart it is the work of faith.
To have the Holy Spirit faith is needed to do what the Lord commands faith is needed. Without faith, no one can please God because you must believe that He exists and He is powerful. Believing that God exists gives you the mind to obey His words.
6 And without faith it is impossible to please God because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
Faith is a habit that must grow in your life. We need faith to move mountains that block our progress. There are mountains raised against us we must make faith to become part of us and use it to move mountains.
20 He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”
In this violent world, it is quite difficult to find truly gentle people. Some people are gentle because they have not to be faced with anger-provoking issues.
Some people are gentle because of fear they are afraid of facing people that will torment them. Many people are gentle at a particular time for different reasons.
Jesus Christ told us what will become of those that are meek or gentle.
5 Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.
Christians are not gentle because they are not faced with fights or because they are afraid, but Christians are gentle because the Spirit of God is solidly behind them.
Are you part of these Christians?
Can people around you testify that you are gentle?
What is your life preaching to them?
Are you always fighting with someone?
The Holy Spirit is not in support of this and wants this fruit of gentleness to grow in you and then become a habit that people will see and choose to be like you. You need to go through your life and make decisions to allow the Holy Spirit to make present the fruit of gentleness.
Otherwise, know as self-control is the act of restraining oneself from tempting things or sinful things.
1 Thessalonians 4:4
4 that each of you should learn to control your own body[a] in a way that is holy and honorable,
Christians know how to run from sin or to avoid falling into temptation and they call them holy. The holy spirit made it their habit.
There are things that are tempting around us we feel like partaking in all of these things but we can control ourselves and abstain from each of these things.
People see this and think it’s ordinary. It is the fruit of the Holy Spirit in us working. It is not physical because the flesh cannot handle self-control, it is the power of God in us that leads us.
If we look at all these fruits of the Holy Spirit we will see that they are interdependent. It will not just show up in our lives overnight. They are attributes of those who live by the Spirit of the Lord.
When you walk and grow in the Spirit these fruits will start showing.
If you have love in you you will keep the peace you will have no reason to fight anyone with joy in you you will know how to preserve all the challenges you face will be nothing to you.
1 Corinthians 13:4
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
Faith helps you to preserve believing in a greater glory that comes through Christ.
People read the lives of Christians they don’t care about the church you go to the prayer you make what they are looking at is your habit.
If you have a positive character and you affect the lives of people around you positively they will choose to serve Christ too. Your life your habit is one of the things that preach to people.
All of these habits come only through the Holy Spirit.
10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God,
