Fruits of the Spirit

“Paul described the fruit of the Spirit; that is, what the Spirit produces, ‘The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness,’ and he observed, ‘Against such there is no law’ (Gal. 5:22–23). In other words, the Spirit can penetrate anything. No law can be passed which will preclude the Spirit from doing His work with an obedient follower of Christ. The scriptures teach many additional promises, protections, and purposes of the Spirit:

  • Enlightens the mind (see D&C 6:15);
  • Leadeth to do good– … to do justly, to walk humbly, to judge righteously’ (D&C 11:12);Fills the soul with joy (see D&C 11:13; Mosiah 4:20);
  • Reveals the ‘truth of all things’ (Moro. 10:5);
  • Bears record of Father and Son (see D&C 20:27);
  • Knows all things (see D&C 42:17);
  • Convinces (see D&C 100:8);
  • Gives knowledge (see D&C 121:26);
  • Speaks in a ‘still small voice’ (1 Ne. 17:45);
  • Teaches a man to pray (see 2 Ne. 32:8);
  • Brings about mighty change (see Mosiah 5:2);
  • Gives assurances (see Alma 58:11);
  • Fills with ‘hope and perfect love’ (Moro. 8:26);
  • Gives liberty (see 2 Cor. 3:17);
  • Comforts (see John 14:16);
  • Speaks peace (Alma 58:11);
  • Is available (see D&C 6:14)” (“His Peace,” Ensign, May 1997, 32).
  • I have found it corrects more than it directs. It reminds more than it reveals.
