The Holy Spirit – Nine Gifts of the Spirit and Nine Fruit of the Spirit
The HOLY SPIRIT!!
The HOLY SPIRIT is symbol-ized in the Bible by a DOVE. A DOVE is a very gentle bird and has 2 wings. There is a reason for that!
ONE Wing represents the 9 FRUIT of the Spirit
THE OTHER WING represents 9 GIFTS of the Spirit
YOU NEED BOTH TO BE A BALANCED CHRISTIAN!
If you only have gifts and no fruit, I guess you are flapping on ONE Wing, and it’s impossible to FLY!!
Galatians 5:22-23 New International Version (NIV)
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.
1 Corinthians 12 New International Version (NIV)
Concerning Spiritual Gifts
7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. 8 To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit,
9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits,
to another speaking in different kinds of tongues,[a] and to still another the interpretation of tongues.[b] 11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.
